The AD8337 is a low noise, single-ended, linear-in-dB, general-purpose variable gain amplifier (VGA) usable at frequencies from dc to 100 MHz; the −3 dB bandwidth is 280 MHz. Excellent bandwidth uniformity across the entire gain range and low output-referred noise makes the AD8337 ideal for gain trim applications and for driving high speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).

Excellent dc characteristics combined with high speed make the AD8337 particularly suited for industrial ultrasound, PET scanners, and video applications. Dual-supply operation enables gain control of negative-going pulses such as generated by photodiodes or photomultiplier tubes.

The AD8337 uses the popular and versatile X-AMP® architecture, exclusively from Analog Devices, Inc., with a gain range of 24 dB. The gain control interface provides precise linear-in-dB scaling of 19.7 dB/V, referenced to VCOM.

The AD8337 includes an uncommitted operational current-feedback preamplifier (PrA) that operates in inverting or noninverting configurations. Using external resistors, the device can be configured for gains of 6 dB or greater. The AD8337 is characterized by a noninverting PrA gain of 2× using two external 100 Ω resistors. The attenuator has a range of 24 dB, and the output amplifier has a fixed gain of 8× (18.06 dB). The lowest nominal gain range is 0 dB to 24 dB and can be shifted up or down by adjusting the preamp gain. Multiple AD8337s can be connected in series for larger gain ranges, and for interstage filtering to suppress noise and distortion, and for nulling offset voltages.

The operating temperature range is –40°C to +85°C, and it is available in an 8-lead, 3 mm × 3 mm LFCSP.

Product Detail

Three circuit configurations are available.


  • AD8337-EVALZ, dc-coupled, with noninverting gain and dual power supplies.
  • AD8337-EVALZ-INV, dc-coupled, with inverting gain and dual power supplies.
  • AD8337-EVALZ-SS, ac-coupled, with noninverting gain configuration and a single supply.


These fully assembled and tested boards are ready to use. Only the appropriate power supply and signal source connections need to be made. SMA connectors are provided for the pream- plifier (PrA) and VGA outputs.


See AD8337 data sheet for further details.
