Product Details

The LT1217 is a 10MHz current feedback amplifier with DC characteristics better than many voltage feedback amplifiers. This versatile amplifier is fast, 280ns settling to 0.1% for a 10V step thanks to its 500V/µs slew rate. The LT1217 is manufactured on a proprietary complementary bipolar process resulting in a low 1mA quiescent current. To reduce power dissipation further, the LT1217 can be turned off, eliminating the load current and dropping the supply current to 350µA.

The LT1217 is excellent for driving cables and other low impedance loads thanks to a minimum output drive current of 50mA. Operating on any supplies from ±5V to ±15V allows the LT1217 to be used in almost any system. Like other current feedback amplifiers, the LT1217 has high gain bandwidth at high gains. The bandwidth is over 1MHz at a gain of 100.

The LT1217 comes in the industry standard pinout and can upgrade the performance of many older products.
