Features and Benefits
Product DetailsThe AD8146/AD8147/AD8148 are high speed triple, differential or single-ended input to differential output drivers. The AD8146 and AD8147 have a fixed gain of 2, and the AD8148 has a fixed gain of 4. They are all specifically designed for the highest resolution component video signals but can be used for any type of analog signals or high speed data transmission over either Category 5 UTP cable or differential printed circuit board (PCB) transmission lines.
These drivers can be used with the AD8145 triple differential-to-singled-ended receiver, and the AD8117 crosspoint switch to produce a video distribution system capable of supporting UXGA or 1080p signals.
Manufactured on the Analog Devices, Inc. second generation XFCB bipolar process, the drivers have large signal bandwidths of 700 MHz and fast slew rates. They have an internal common-mode feedback feature that provides output amplitude and phase matching that is balanced to −60 dB at 50 MHz, suppressing even-order harmonics and minimizing radiated electromagnetic interference (EMI).
The common-mode voltage of each AD8146 output can be set to any level, allowing transmission of signals over the common-mode voltages. The AD8147 and AD8148 encode the vertical and horizontal sync signals on the common-mode voltages of the outputs. All outputs can be independently set to low voltage states to be used with series diodes for line isolation, allowing easy differential multiplexing over the same twisted pair cable.
The AD8146/AD8147/AD8148 are available in a 24-lead LFCSP and operate over a temperature range of −40°C to +85°C.

Tools & Simulations
ADIsimPE, which is powered by SIMetrix/SIMPLIS, is a circuit simulation suite optimized for the design and development of analog and mixed signal circuits. SIMetrix mode is ideal for the simulation of general non-switching circuits. It provides full Pspice compatibility for use with industry-standard SPICE models. SIMPLIS (SIMulation Piecewise-Linear System) mode simulates the operation of switching circuits with vastly improved robustness, speed, and accuracy compared to standard SPICE. It is particularly useful for switching power supply, PLLs, and ADC/DAC applications.
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.
