Product DetailsThe ADA4857 is a unity gain stable, high speed, voltage feedback amplifier with low distortion, low noise, and high slew rate. With a spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of −88 dBc @ 10 MHz, the ADA4857 is an ideal solution for a variety of applications including ultrasounds, ATE, active filters, and ADC drivers. The Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary next-generation XFCB process and innovative architecture enables such high performance amplifiers.
The ADA4857 has 850 MHz bandwidth, 2800 V/μs slew rate, and settles to 0.1% in 15 ns. With a wide supply voltage range (5 V to 10 V), the ADA4857 is an ideal candidate for systems that require high dynamic range, precision, and speed.
The ADA4857-1 amplifier is available in a 3 mm × 3 mm, 8-lead LFCSP and a standard 8-lead SOIC. The ADA4857-2 is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm, 16-lead LFSCP. The LFCSP features an exposed paddle that provides a low thermal resistance path to the printed circuit board (PCB). This path enables more efficient heat transfer and increases reliability. The ADA4857 works over the extended industrial temperature range (−40°C to +125°C).

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:
Precision ADC Driver Tool
The Precision ADC Driver Tool is a web application that simulates the performance of precision ADC and driver combinations. Potential issues with driver selection, kickback settling, and distortion are flagged, and design tradeoffs can be quickly evaluated. Simulations and calculations include system noise, distortion, and settling of the ADC input
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.
A utility to convert between standard units of power measurement and signal strength.
This tool estimates die temperature and power dissipation based on the supply voltages, ambient temperature, load characteristics, and package thermal data.
