Product Details

The ADA4950-1/ADA4950-2 are gain-selectable versions of the ADA4932-1/ADA4932-2 with on-chip feedback and gain resistors with on-chip feedback and gain resistors. It is an ideal choice for driving high performance ADCs as a single-ended-to-differential or differential-to-differential amplifier. The output common-mode voltage is user adjustable by means of an internal common-mode feedback loop, allowing the ADA4950-x output to match the input of the ADC. The internal feedback loop also provides exceptional output balance as well as suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products.

Differential gain configurations of 1, 2, and 3 are easily realized with internal feedback networks that are connected externally to set the closed-loop gain of the amplifier.

The ADA4950-1/ADA4950-2 are fabricated using the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary silicon-germanium (SiGe) complementary bipolar process, enabling them to achieve low levels of distortion and noise at low power consumption. The low offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4950-x make it well suited for a wide variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications.

The ADA4950-x is available in a Pb-free, 3 mm × 3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP (ADA4950-1, single) or a Pb-free 4 mm × 4 mm, 24-lead LFCSP (ADA4950-2, dual). The pinout has been optimized to facilitate PCB layout and minimize distortion. The ADA4950-1/ADA4950-2 are specified to operate over the -40°C to +105°C temperature range; both operate on supplies from +3 V to ±5 V.
