Product Details

The ADA4530-1 is a femtoampere (10−15 A) level input bias current operational amplifier suitable for use as an electrometer that also includes an integrated guard buffer. It has an operating voltage range of 4.5 V to 16 V, enabling it to operate in conventional 5 V and 10 V single supply systems as well as ±2.5 V and ±5 V dual supply systems.

It provides ultralow input bias currents that are production tested at 25°C and at 125°C to ensure the device meets its performance goals in user systems. The integrated guard buffer isolates the input pins from leakage in the printed circuit board (PCB), minimizes board component count, and enables easy system design. The ADA4530-1 is available in an industry-standard surface-mount 8-lead SOIC package with a unique pinout optimized to prevent signals from coupling between the sensitive input pins, the power supplies, and the output pin while enabling easy routing of the guard ring traces.

The ADA4530-1 also offers low offset voltage, low offset drift, and low voltage and current noise needed for the types of applications that require such low leakages.

To maximize the dynamic range of the system, the ADA4530-1 has a rail-to-rail output stage that can typically drive to within 30 mV of the supply rails under a 10 kΩ load.

The ADA4530-1 operates over the −40°C to +125°C industrial temperature range and is available in an 8-lead SOIC package.


  • Laboratory and analytical instrumentation: spectrophotometers, chromatographs, mass spectrometers, and potentiostatic and amperostatic coulometry
  • Instrumentation: picoammeters and coulombmeters
  • Transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for photodiodes, ion chambers, and working electrode measurements
  • High impedance buffering for chemical sensors and capacitive sensors

Tools & Simulations


LTspice® is a powerful, fast and free simulation software, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of analog circuits.


Models for the following parts are available in LTspice:



Design Tool

Analog Filter Wizard

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.

Analog Photodiode Wizard

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.
