Product DetailsThe ADA4927 is a low noise, ultralow distortion, high speed, current feedback differential amplifier that is an ideal choice for driving high performance ADCs with resolutions up to 16 bits from dc to 100 MHz. The output common-mode level can easily be matched to the required ADC input common-mode levels. The internal common-mode feedback loop provides exceptional output balance and suppression of even-order distortion products.
Differential gain configurations are easily realized using an external feedback network comprising four resistors. The current feedback architecture provides loop gain that is nearly independent of closed-loop gain, achieving wide bandwidth, low distortion, and low noise at higher gains and lower power consumption than comparable voltage feedback amplifiers.
The ADA4927 is fabricated using the Analog Devices, Inc., silicon-germanium complementary bipolar process, enabling very low levels of distortion with an input voltage noise of only 1.3 nV/√Hz. The low dc offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4927 make it well suited for a wide variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications.
The ADA4927-1 is available in a Pb-free, 3 mm × 3 mm 16-lead LFCSP, and the ADA4927-2 is available in a Pb-free, 4 mm × 4 mm 24-lead LFCSP. The pinouts are optimized to facilitate printed circuit board (PCB) layout and to minimize distortion. They are specified to operate over the −40°C to +105°C temperature range.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The Universal Differential Amplifier Evaluation Boards can be used to evaluate single, high speed, fully differential amplifiers. The evaluation boards are bare boards that enable users to quickly prototype a variety of differential or single-ended circuits, which minimizes risk and reduces time to market. These boards are all RoHs Compliant. See references below on what board to order by lead count and package.

Tools & Simulations
ADIsimPE, which is powered by SIMetrix/SIMPLIS, is a circuit simulation suite optimized for the design and development of analog and mixed signal circuits. SIMetrix mode is ideal for the simulation of general non-switching circuits. It provides full Pspice compatibility for use with industry-standard SPICE models. SIMPLIS (SIMulation Piecewise-Linear System) mode simulates the operation of switching circuits with vastly improved robustness, speed, and accuracy compared to standard SPICE. It is particularly useful for switching power supply, PLLs, and ADC/DAC applications.
ADI's new ADI DiffAmpCalc™ is a free, downloadable calculator for designing differential amplifier circuits. The tool is easy to use and features an interactive user interface to quickly get you up and running.
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.
