Zero Drift, Digitally Programmable Instrumentation Amplifier
The AD8231 is ideal for applications that require precision performance over a wide temperature range, such as industrial temperature sensing and data logging. Because the gain setting resistors are internal, maximum gain drift is only 10 ppm/°C for gains of 1 to 32. Because of the auto-zero input stage, maximum input offset is 15 μV and maximum input offset drift is just 50 nV/°C. CMRR is 80 dB for G = 1, increasing to 110 dB at higher gains.
The AD8231 also includes an uncommitted op amp that can be used for additional gain, differential signal driving, or filtering. Like the in-amp, the op amp has an auto-zero architecture, rail-to-rail input, and rail-to-rail output.
The AD8231 includes a shutdown feature that reduces current to a maximum of 1 μA. In shutdown, both amplifiers also have a high output impedance, which allows easy multiplexing of multiple amplifiers without additional switches.
The AD8231 is specified over the extended industrial tempera-ture range of −40°C to +125°C. It is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm 16-lead LFCSP.Applications

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
The AD8231-EVALZ has two AD8231s mounted on it. Z1 is the AD8231 on the left side of the board. It is configured to allow access of the in-amp and op amp separately. Z2 is the AD8231 on the right side of the board. It is set up as a differential output configuration. See AD8231-EVALZ data sheet for complete instruction.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
