Product DetailsThe AD829 is a low noise (1.7 nV/√Hz), high speed op amp with custom compensation that provides the user with gains of 1 to 20 while maintaining a bandwidth >50 MHz. Its 0.04° differential phase and 0.02% differential gain performance at 3.58 MHz and 4.43 MHz, driving reverse-terminated 50 Ω or 75 Ω cables, makes it ideally suited for professional video applications. The AD829 achieves its 230 V/μs uncompensated slew rate and 750 MHz gain bandwidth while requiring only 5 mA of current from power supplies.
The external compensation pin of the AD829 gives it exceptional versatility. For example, compensation can be selected to optimize the bandwidth for a given load and power supply voltage. As a gain-of-2 line driver, the −3 dB bandwidth can be increased to 95 MHz at the expense of 1 dB of peaking. Its output can also be clamped at its external compensation pin. The AD829 exhibits excellent dc performance. It offers a minimum open-loop gain of 30 V/mV into loads as low as 500 Ω, a low input voltage noise of 1.7 nV/√Hz, and a low input offset voltage of 1 mV maximum. Common-mode rejection and power supply rejection ratios are both 120 dB.
This op amp is also useful in multichannel, high speed data conversion where its fast (90 ns to 0.1%) settling time is important. In such applications, the AD829 serves as an input buffer for 8-bit to 10-bit ADCs and as an output I/V converter for high speed DACs.
Operating as a traditional voltage feedback amplifier, the AD829 provides many of the advantages that a transimpedance amplifier offer. A bandwidth >50 MHz can be maintained for a range of gains through the replacement of the external compensation capacitor. The AD829 and the transimpedance amplifier are both unity-gain stable and provide similar voltage noise performance (1.7 nV/√Hz); however, the current noise of the AD829 (1.5 pA/√Hz) is less than 10% of the noise of transimpedance amplifiers. The inputs of the AD829 are symmetrical.

Tools & Simulations
AD829 SPICE Macro Models
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.
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.
