The LT5524 is a programmable gain amplifier (PGA) with bandwidth extending from low frequency (LF) to 540MHz. It consists of a digitally controlled variable attenuator, followed by a high linearity amplifier. Four parallel digital inputs control the gain over a 22.5dB range with 1.5dB step resolution. An on-chip power supply regulator/filter helps isolate the amplifier signal path from external noise sources.
The LT5524’s open-loop architecture offers stable operation for any practical load conditions, including peaking-free AC response when driving capacitive loads, and excellent reverse isolation.
The LT5524 may be operated broadband, where the output differential RC time constant sets the bandwidth, or it may be used as a narrowband driver with the appropriate output filter.

Tools & Simulations
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
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.
