The EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E allow the evaluation of the LTC6227 and LTC6229, 8-lead, dual-channel, micro small outline package (MSOP) op amps. The EVAL-LTC6227MS8E and the EVAL-LTC6229MS8E are prepopulated boards on a buffer configuration with a post low-pass filter. This configuration allows the LTC6227 and LTC6229 to be used as high speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) drivers. The EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E support other typical configurations of the op amps, and are configured and have provisions for typical applications of the LTC6227 and the LTC6229, including high speed, low voltage, low noise, in-amp, and as an active filter. The exposed paddle pin is already shorted to the VEE turret pin, which is required for the device.
The 4-layer EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E accept edge mounted, Subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors on both inputs and outputs to provide an efficient connection to the test equipment and other circuitry. In addition, the EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E have sufficient test points for both signal pins and groundings.
Optimized power and ground planes ensure low noise and high speed operation. Component placement and power supply bypassing are optimized for maximum circuit flexibility and performance. The EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E accept C0402 or C0603 surface-mount technology (SMT) components and C1206 bypass capacitors for C5 and C6.
All components are placed on the primary side of the EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E, and no components are placed on the secondary side. The EVAL-LTC6227MS8E and EVAL-LTC6229MS8E evaluation boards are identical except for the on-board devices.
For full details on the LTC6227 and the LTC6229, see the LTC6227 and the LTC6229 data sheets, which must be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the EVAL-LTC6227MS8E/EVAL-LTC6229MS8E.
