Amplifier ICs

High Speed, Rail-to-Rail, Triple Amplifiers Deliver Cost Efficient, Lossless UXGA

The ADA4855-3 and ADA4856-3 triple amplifiers provide a wide output voltage range at a wide –3 dB bandwidth, allowing analog video systems to deliver cost efficient, high quality HD video for high speed video applications. Both devices are single supply, rail-to-rail output voltage feedback amplifiers that offer low output crosstalk and low power dissipation. The ADA4856-3 has fixed G = 2 output, providing cost and space savings for projectors, monitors, and computers that output HD video. The devices operate on 3.3 V to 5 V supplies and are available in 16-lead LFCSP packaging.

Compact Video Filter and Buffer Supports HD and SD Signals Simultaneously

The ADA4420-6 is a low cost video reconstruction filter and buffer specifically designed for consumer applications. It consists of six independent filter channels: three for standard definition (Y/C, CVBS) and three for high definition component (YPrPb or RGB) signals. The device operates on a single 5 V supply, making it ideal for applications where power consumption is critical. The disable feature allows further power conservation by reducing the supply current to, typically, 10 µA when the ADA4420-6 is not in use.

Applications include DVD players and recorders, game consoles, media servers, and set-top boxes. The ADA4420-6 operates in the extended industrial temperature range of –40°C to +85°C and is available in 20-lead TSSOP pinout and 16-lead QSOP pinout packaging.
