The LT1468 is a precision high speed operational amplifier with 16-bit accuracy and 900ns settling to 150μV for 10V signals. This unique blend of precision and AC performance makes the LT1468 the optimum choice for high accuracy applications such as DAC current-to-voltage conversion and ADC buffers. The initial accuracy and drift characteristics of the input offset voltage and inverting input bias current are tailored for inverting applications.
The 90MHz gain bandwidth ensures high open-loop gain at frequency for reducing distortion. In noninverting applications such as an ADC buffer, the low distortion and DC accuracy allow full 16-bit AC and DC performance.
The 22V/μs slew rate of the LT1468 improves large-signal performance in applications such as active filters and instrumentation amplifiers compared to other precision op amps.
The LT1468 is manufactured on a complementary bipolar process. It is available in a space saving 3mm × 3mm leadless package, as well as small outline and DIP packages.

Demonstration circuit 2135A shows a simple DC accurate ADC driver circuit that converts a ±10V single-ended input signal into a fully differential signal capable of driving the LTC2378-20 with a combined linearity error of only 2ppm. The LTC2378-20 is a low power, low noise 20-bit SAR ADC with a serial output that operates from a single 2.5V supply. The demo manual refers to the LTC2378-20 but applies to all parts in the family, the only difference being the maximum sample rate. The LTC2378-20 supports a ±5V fully differential input range with a 104dB SNR, consumes only 21mW and achieves ±2ppm INL max with no missing codes at 20 bits. The DC2135A is the PCB that goes with DN1032. Refer to this design note for the theory of operation for this demo circuit. An option for a pseudo differential input drive is provided.
