The LT6600-15 combines a fully differential amplifier with a 4th order 15MHz lowpass filter approximating a Chebyshev frequency response. Most differential amplifiers require many precision external components to tailor gain and bandwidth. In contrast, with the LT6600-15, two external resistors program differential gain, and the filter’s 15MHz cutoff frequency and passband ripple are internally set. The LT6600-15 also provides the necessary level shifting to set its output common mode voltage to accommodate the reference voltage requirements of A/Ds.
Using a proprietary internal architecture, the LT6600-15 integrates an antialiasing filter and a differential amplifier/driver without compromising distortion or low noise performance. At unity gain the measured in band signal-to-noise ratio is an impressive 76dB. At higher gains the input referred noise decreases so the part can process smaller input differential signals without significantly degrading the output signal-to-noise ratio.
The LT6600-15 also features low voltage operation. The differential design provides outstanding performance for a 2VP-P signal level while the part operates with a single 3V supply.
The LT6600-15 is packaged in an SO-8 and is pin compatible with stand alone differential amplifiers.

Tools & Simulations
LTspice® is a powerful, fast and free simulation software, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of analog circuits.
Models for the following parts are available in LTspice:
Sys-Parameter models contain behavioral parameters, such as P1dB, IP3, gain, noise figure and return loss, which describe nonlinear and linear characteristics of a device.
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.View our quality and reliability program and certifications for more information.
