Wideband Dual-Channel Linear Multiplier/Divider
The full bandwidth can be realized over most of the gain range using the AD539 with simple resistive loads of up to 100 Ω. Output voltage is restricted to a few hundred millivolts under these conditions.
The two channels provide flexibility. In single-channel applications, they can be used in parallel to double the output current, in series to achieve a square-law gain function with a control range of over 100 dB, or differentially to reduce distortion. Alternatively, they can be used independently, as in audio stereo applications, with low crosstalk between channels. Voltage-controlled filters and oscillators using the state-variable approach are easily designed, taking advantage of the dual channels and common control. The AD539 can also be configured as a divider with signal bandwidths up to 15 MHz.
Power consumption is only 135 mW using the recommended ±5 V supplies. The AD539 is available in three versions: the J and K grades are specified for 0 to 70°C operation and S grade is guaranteed over the extended range of −55°C to +125°C. The J and K grades are available in either a hermetic ceramic SBDIP (D-16) or a low cost PDIP (N-16), whereas the S grade is available in ceramic SBDIP (D-16) or LCC (E-20-1). The S grade is availa¬ble in MIL-STD-883 and Standard Military Drawing (DESC) Number 5962-8980901EA versions.
