Dual Precision, 500 ns Settling, BiFET Op Amp

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The AD746 is a dual operational amplifier, consisting of two AD744 BiFET op amps on a single chip. These precision monolithic op amps offer excellent dc characteristics plus rapid settling times, high slew rates and ample bandwidths. In addition, the AD746 provides the close matching ac and dc characteristics inherent to amplifiers sharing the same monolithic die.

The single pole response of the AD746 provides fast settling: 500 ns to 0.01%. This feature, combined with its high dc precision, makes it suitable for use as a buffer amplifier for 12- or 14-bit DACs and ADCs. Furthermore, the AD746's low total harmonic distortion (THD) level of 0.0001% and very close matching ac characteristics make it an ideal amplifier for many demanding audio applications.

The AD746 is internally compensated for stable operation as a unity gain inverter or as a noninverting amplifier with a gain of 2 or greater. It is available in four performance grades. The AD746J is rated over the commercial temperature range of 0 to +70°C. The AD746A and AD746B are rated over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The AD746S is rated over the military temperature range of -55°C to +125°C and is available processed to MIL-STD-883B, Rev. C.

The AD746 is available in three 8-pin packages: plastic mini DIP, hermetic cerdip and surface mount (SOIC).

    Product Details

    These evaluation boards are designed to help users evaluate the AD746. The evaluation board is a BARE BOARD. There are no components or amplifiers soldered to the board. These parts must be obtained separately from the table below or on the product page. Free samples may also be requested. The unpopulated board enables users to quickly customize and prototype a variety of op amp circuits, which minimizes risk and reduces time to market.

    The User Guide contains all the required documentation to build the board, including schematics, assembly drawing, and Bill of Materials
