Product Details

The AD8047 and AD8048 are very high speed and wide bandwidth amplifiers. The AD8047 is unity gain stable. The AD8048 is stable at gains of two or greater. The AD8047 and AD8048, which utilize a voltage feedback architecture, meet the requirements of many applications that previously depended on current feedback amplifiers.

A proprietary circuit has produced an amplifier that combines many of the best characteristics of both current feedback and voltage feedback amplifiers. For the power (6.6 mA max) the AD8047 and AD8048 exhibit fast and accurate pulse response (30 ns to 0.01%) as well as extremely wide small signal and large signal bandwidth and low distortion. The AD8047 achieves -54 dBc distortion at 20 MHz and 250 MHz small signal and 130 MHz large signal bandwidths.

The AD8047 and AD8048's low distortion and cap load drive make the AD8047/AD8048 ideal for buffering high speed ADCs. They are suitable for 12 bit/10 MSPS or 8 bit/60 MSPS ADCs. Additionally, the balanced high impedance inputs of the voltage feedback architecture allow maximum flexibility when designing active filters.

The AD8047 and AD8048 are offered in industrial (-40°C to +85°C) temperature ranges and are available in 8-lead PDIP and SOIC packages.

An evaluation board is available for this product and may be ordered using the following product number: AD8047-EB and AD8048-EB. Schematic and layout for this evaluation board is contained in the product data sheet.

Design Tools

Analog Filter Wizard

Use the Analog Filter Wizard to design low-pass, high-pass, or band-pass filters with actual op amps in minutes. As you progress through the design process, you can observe the characteristics of your filter design from ideal specifications to real world circuit behavior. Quickly evaluate the tradeoffs in op amp specifications - including gain-bandwidth, noise, and supply current – to determine the best filter design for your requirements.

Analog Photodiode Wizard

Use Photodiode Wizard to design a transimpedance amplifier circuit to interface with a photodiode. Select a photodiode from the library included in the tool, or enter custom photodiode specifications. Quickly observe tradeoffs between Bandwidth, Peaking (Q), and ENOB/SNR. Modify circuit parameters, and immediately see results in plots for pulse response, frequency response, and noise gain.

VRMS/dBm/dBu/dBV calculators

A utility to convert between standard units of power measurement and signal strength.

Power Dissipation vs Die Temp

This tool estimates die temperature and power dissipation based on the supply voltages, ambient temperature, load characteristics, and package thermal data.
