The ADA4254 is a zero drift, high voltage, low power programmable gain instrumentation amplifier (PGIA) designed for process control and industrial applications. The ADA4254 features 12 binary weighted gains ranging from 1/16 V/V to 128 V/V and three scaling gain options of 1 V/V, 1.25 V/V, and 1.375 V/V, resulting in 36 possible gain settings. The power consumption of the ADA4254 is a mere 22 mW, making the device an excellent choice for industrial systems that demand precision, robustness, and low power.
The zero drift amplifier topology of the ADA4254 self calibrates dc errors and low frequency 1/f noise, achieving excellent dc precision over the entire specified temperature range. This high level of precision maximizes dynamic range and greatly reduces calibration requirements in many applications.
The input multiplexer provides ±60 V protection to the high impedance inputs of the amplifier, while providing the capability to switch between two input sources. In addition, integrated electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters block harsh RF noise from the sensitive inputs of the amplifier.
Various safety features on the ADA4254 detect both internal and external faults. The serial port interface (SPI) supports cyclical redundancy check (CRC) error detection to ensure robust communication. These safety features ease system safety integrity level (SIL) certification.
Seven general-purpose input/output (GPIO) pins, which can be configured to provide various special functions, are included in the ADA4254. An excitation current source output is available to bias sensors such as resistance temperature detectors (RTDs).
The ADA4254 is specified over the −40°C to +105°C temperature range and is offered in a compact 5 mm × 5 mm, 28-lead LFCSP and a 24-lead TSSOP.

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.
