AD8186:  450 MHz, Single Supply, Triple 2:1, Buffered (G= +1) Multiplexer

Product Details

The AD8186 (G = +1) is a high-speed single supply Triple 2-to-1 multiplexer. It offers -3 dB large signal bandwidth of over 450 MHz along with a slew rate in excess of 1600 V/µs. With better than -84 dB of all hostile crosstalk and 90 dB isolation, it is useful in many high speed applications. The differential gain and differential phase error of 0.05% and 0.05°, along with 0.1 dB flatness to 90 MHz makes the AD8186 ideal for professional and component video multiplexing. It offers a 4 ns switching time making it an excellent choice for switching video signals, while consuming less than 20 mA on +5 V supply voltage (100 mW).

The AD8186 has a high speed disable feature that sets the outputs into a high impedance state. This allows the building of larger input arrays while minimizing "OFF" channel output loading. The device is offered in 24 lead TSSOP package.
