Analog Devices' ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2 are low noise, low distortion differential amplifiers with very low power consumption. They are an ideal choice for driving low power, high resolution, high performance SAR and sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) with resolutions up to 18 bits from DC to 1 MHz on only 1.25 mA of quiescent current. The adjustable level of the output common-mode voltage allows the ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2 to match the input common-mode voltage of multiple ADCs. The internal common-mode feedback loop provides exceptional output balance, as well as suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products.
With the ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2, differential gain configurations are easily realized with a simple external feedback network of four resistors determining the closed-loop gain of the amplifier. The ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2 are fabricated using Analog Devices, Inc., complementary bipolar process, enabling them to achieve very low levels of distortion with an input voltage noise of only 3.9 nV/√Hz. The low DC offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2 make them well suited for a variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications.
The ADA4940-1 is available in a Pb-free, 3 mm x 3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP. The ADA4940-2 is available in a Pb-free, 4 mm x 4 mm, 24-lead LFCSP. The pinout is optimized to facilitate printed circuit board (PCB) layout and minimize distortion. The ADA4940-1/ADA4940-2 are specified to operate over the −40°C to +125°C temperature range.Applications
