Audio Dual Matched PNP Transistor
The ultra-low input voltage noise of the SSM2220 is typically only 0.7 nV/√Hz over the entire audio bandwidth of 20 Hz to 20 k Hz. The low noise, high bandwidth (190 MHz), and Offset Voltage of 200 u V Max)make the SSM2220 an ideal choice for demanding low noise preamplifier applications.
The SSM2220 also offers excellent matching of the current gain (ΔhFE) to about 0.5%, which helps to reduce the high order ampli-fier harmonic distortion. In addition, to ensure the long-term stability of the matching parameters, internal protection diodes across the base to emitter junction were used to clamp any reverse base to emitter junction potential. This prevents a base to emitter breakdown condition, which can result in degradation of gain and matching performance due to excessive breakdown current.
The SSM2220 is offered in 8-lead plastic dual inline (PDIP) and 8-lead standard small outline (SOIC), and its performance and characteristics are guaranteed over the extended industrial temper-ature range of −40°C to +85°C.
This designates products ADI does not recommend broadly for new designs.
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.
