The AD8139 is an ultralow noise, high performance differential amplifier with rail-to-rail output. With its low noise, high SFDR, and wide bandwidth, it is an ideal choice for driving analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) with resolutions to 18 bits. The AD8139 is easy to apply, and its internal common-mode feedback architecture allows its output common-mode voltage to be controlled by the voltage applied to one pin. The internal feedback loop also provides outstanding output balance as well as suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products. Fully differential and single-ended-to-differential gain configurations are easily realized by the AD8139. Simple external feedback networks consisting of four resistors determine the closed-loop gain of the amplifier.
The AD8139 is manufactured on the proprietary Analog Devices, Inc., second-generation XFCB process, enabling it to achieve low levels of distortion with input voltage noise of only 2.25 nV/√Hz.
The AD8139 is available in an 8-lead SOIC package with an exposed paddle (EP) on the underside of its body and a 3 mm × 3 mm LFCSP. It is rated to operate over the temperature range of −40°C to +125°C.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The Universal Differential Amplifier Evaluation Boards can be used to evaluate single, high speed, fully differential amplifiers. The evaluation boards are bare boards that enable users to quickly prototype a variety of differential or single-ended circuits, which minimizes risk and reduces time to market. These boards are all RoHs Compliant. See references below on what board to order by lead count and package.
Tools & Simulations
Precision ADC Driver Tool - BETA
The Precision ADC Driver Tool is a web application that simulates the performance of precision ADC and driver combinations. Potential issues with driver selection, kickback settling, and distortion are flagged, and design tradeoffs can be quickly evaluated. Simulations and calculations include system noise, distortion, and settling of the ADC input
Sys-Parameter models contain behavioral parameters, such as P1dB, IP3, gain, noise figure and return loss, which describe nonlinear and linear characteristics of a device.
ADIsimPE, which is powered by SIMetrix/SIMPLIS, is a circuit simulation suite optimized for the design and development of analog and mixed signal circuits. SIMetrix mode is ideal for the simulation of general non-switching circuits. It provides full Pspice compatibility for use with industry-standard SPICE models. SIMPLIS (SIMulation Piecewise-Linear System) mode simulates the operation of switching circuits with vastly improved robustness, speed, and accuracy compared to standard SPICE. It is particularly useful for switching power supply, PLLs, and ADC/DAC applications.
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
ADI's new ADI DiffAmpCalc™ is a free, downloadable calculator for designing differential amplifier circuits. The tool is easy to use and features an interactive user interface to quickly get you up and running.
