AMP03:  High-Speed Differential Amplifier

Product Details

Newer Alternatives:
  • NEW DESIGNS consider the AD8274 or AD8276 difference amps for their wider bandwidth, smaller foot print, higher ESD performance and lower costs.

The AMP03 is a monolithic unity-gain, high-speed differential amplifier. Incorporating a matched thin-film resistor network, the AMP03 features stable operation over temperature without requiring expensive external matched components. The AMP03 is a basic analog building block for differential amplifier and instrumentation amplifiers.


  • High CMRR: 100 dB Typ
  • Low Nonlinearity: 0.001% Max
  • Low Distortion: 0.001% Typ
  • Wide Bandwidth: 3 MHz Typ
  • Fast Slew Rate: 9.5 V/µs Typ
  • Fast Settling (0.01%): 1µs Typ
  • Low Cost
