The ADA4817-1 (single) and ADA4817-2 (dual) FastFET™ amplifiers are unity-gain stable, ultrahigh speed, voltage feedback amplifiers with FET inputs. These amplifiers were developed with the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary eXtra fast complementary bipolar (XFCB) process, which allows the amplifiers to achieve ultralow noise (4 nV/√Hz; 2.5 fA/√Hz) as well as very high input impedances.
With 1.3 pF of input capacitance, low noise (4 nV/√Hz), low offset voltage (2 mV maximum), and 1050 MHz −3 dB bandwidth, the ADA4817-1/ADA4817-2 are ideal for data acquisition front ends as well as wideband transimpedance applications, such as photodiode preamps.
With a wide supply voltage range from 5 V to 10 V and the ability to operate on either single or dual supplies, the ADA4817-1/ADA4817-2 are designed to work in a variety of applications including active filtering and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) driving. The ADA4817-1 is available in a 3 mm × 3 mm, 8-lead LFCSP and 8-lead SOIC, and the ADA4817-2 is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm, 16-lead LFCSP. These packages feature a low distortion pinout that improves second harmonic distortion and simplifies circuit board layout. They also feature an exposed pad that provides a low thermal resistance path to the printed circuit board (PCB). The EPAD enables more efficient heat transfer and increases reliability. These products are rated to work over the extended industrial temperature range (−40°C to +105°C).

The ADMX2001 is a measurement module that simplifies the development of impedance measurement systems or can be used to enhance the capabilities of existing test platforms. Using high-performance mixed-signal and processing algorithms, the ADMX2001 can measure changes in capacitance as small as 0.1fF and resistance values up to 1GΩ, often required to test semiconductor devices, electronic components, and sensors. Moreover, built-in measurement algorithms enable the ADMX2001 to deliver fully calibrated complex impedance or admittance measurement results in various formats, including parallel and series combinations of resistance, capacitance, and inductance.

Tools & Simulations
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.
