6 GHz Ultrahigh Dynamic Range Differential Amplifier

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADL5565 is a high performance differential amplifier optimized for RF and IF applications. The amplifier offers low noise of 1.5 nV/√Hz and excellent distortion performance over a wide frequency range making it an ideal driver for high speed 8-bit to 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).

The ADL5565 provides three gain levels of 6 dB, 12 dB, and 15.5 dB through a pin strappable configuration. For the single-ended input configuration, the gains are reduced to 5.3 dB, 10.3 dB, and 13 dB. Using two external series resistors expands the gain flexibility of the amplifier and allows for any gain selection from 0 dB to 15.5 dB for a differential input and 0 dB to 13 dB for a single-ended input.

The quiescent current of the ADL5565 is typically 70 mA, and when disabled, consumes less than 5 mA with −25 dB of input-to-output isolation at 100 MHz.

The device is optimized for wideband, low distortion, and noise performance, giving it unprecedented performance for overall spurious-free dynamic range. These attributes, together with its adjustable gain capability, make this device the amplifier of choice for driving a wide variety of ADCs, mixers, pin diode attenuators, SAW filters, and multielement discrete devices.

Fabricated on an Analog Devices, Inc., high speed SiGe process, the ADL5565 is supplied in a compact 3 mm × 3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP package and operates over the −40°C to +85°C temperature range.

EVAL-ADL5565 Circuit Diagram

Product Details

ADL5565-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation it requires a single 5 V/100 mA power supply. The 5 V power supply should be connected to the test loops labeled VPOS and GND. The RF input signal is applied to the SMA connector labeled J1. The RF output is available at the SMA connector labeled J2. The evaluation board may be converted to a fully differential input and output by installing SMA connectors J2 and J4, removing R13 and R14, installing 0 ohm jumpers R12 and R15, removing T1 & T2 and placing jumpers across the transformer pads. The 3 pin header, P1 controls the enable function. A test loop is provided to allow control from an external signal source.
