The AD8222 is a dual-channel, high performance instrumentation amplifier that requires only one external resistor per amplifier to set gains of 1 to 10,000.
The AD8222 is the first dual-instrumentation amplifier in the small 4 mm × 4mm LFCSP. It requires the same board area as a typical single instrumentation amplifier. The smaller package allows a 2× increase in channel density and a lower cost per channel, all with no compromise in performance.
The AD8222 can also be configured as a single-channel, differential output instrumentation amplifier. Differential outputs provide high noise immunity, which can be useful when the output signal must travel through a noisy environment, such as with remote sensors. The configuration can also be used to drive differential input analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The AD8222 maintains a minimum CMRR of 80 dB to 4 kHz for all grades at G = 1. High CMRR over frequency allows the AD8222 to reject wideband interference and line harmonics, greatly simplifying filter requirements. The AD8222 also has a typical CMRR drift over temperature of just 0.07 µV/V/°C at G = 1.
The AD8222 operates on both single and dual supplies and only requires 2.2 mA maximum supply current for both amplifiers. It is specified over the industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C and is fully RoHS compliant.
For a single-channel version, see the AD8221.

Markets & Technology
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 AD8222-EVALZ has two AD8222 instrumentation amplifier circuits. One circuit is configured for dual-channel operation, while the other is configured for single-channel, differential output operation. Inputs, outputs, references, and the supplies are routed to screw terminals for easy connectivity. See the AD8222-EVALZ data sheet for further details.

In-Amp Diamond Plot Tool
The Diamond Plot Tool is a web application that generates a configuration-specific Output Voltage Range vs. Input Common-Mode Voltage graph, also known as the Diamond Plot, for Analog Devices Instrumentation Amplifiers. Based on user inputs such as supply voltage, gain, and input signal range, the tool detects saturation and recommends in-amps for which the input signal is in-range and the configuration is valid. Avoid saturation, find the best in-amp for your design, and save time.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
