Rail-to-Rail, High Output Current Amplifier
The AD8397 has two voltage feedback operational amplifiers capable of driving heavy loads with excellent linearity. The common-emitter, rail-to-rail output stage surpasses the output voltage capability of typical emitter-follower output stages and can swing to within 0.5 V of either rail while driving a 25 Ω load. The low distortion, high output current, and wide output dynamic range make the AD8397 ideal for applications that require a large signal swing into a heavy load.
Fabricated with ADI's high speed eXtra Fast Complementary Bipolar High Voltage (XFCB-HV) process, the high bandwidth and fast slew rate of the AD8397 keep distortion to a minimum while also dissipating minimum power. The AD8397 is available in a standard 8-lead SOIC package and, for higher power applications, a thermally enhanced 8-lead SOIC EPAD package. Both packages can operate from -40°C to +85°C.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
The Universal Dual High Speed Amplifier Evaluation Boards are bare boards that enables users to quickly prototype a variety of amplifier circuits, which minimizes risk and reduces time to market. These boards are all RoHs Compliant. See ordering guide below on what board to order by lead count and package.
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.
