AD8475 Precision, Selectable Gain, Fully Different

Analog Devices' AD8475 is a fully differential attenuating amplifier with integrated precision gain resistors. It provides precision attenuation (by 0.4 or 0.8), common-mode level shifting, and single-ended-to-differential conversion along with input overvoltage protection. Power dissipation on a single 5 V supply is 16 mW. It has a fully integrated precision gain block, designed to process signal levels up to ±10 V on a single supply. It provides a complete interface to make industrial level signals directly compatible with the differential input ranges of low-voltage high-performance 16-bit or 18-bit single-supply successive approximation (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).

The AD8475 comes with two standard pin-selectable gain options (0.4 and 0.8). The gain of the part is set by driving the input pin corresponding to the appropriate gain and provides overvoltage protection from large industrial input voltages up to ±15 V while operating on a single 5 V supply. The VOCM pin adjusts the output voltage common-mode for precision level shifting to match the ADC’s input range and maximize the dynamic range.

The AD8475 works extremely well with SAR, Σ-Δ, and pipeline converters. The high current output stage of the part allows it to drive the switched capacitor front-end circuits of many ADCs with minimal error.

The AD8475 is a high-precision amplifier with 500 μV maximum output offset, 10 nV/√Hz output noise, -112 dB THD + N, and it pairs well with high-accuracy converters. Considering its low power consumption and high precision, the slew-enhanced AD8475 has excellent speed, settling to 18-bit precision for 4 MSPS acquisition. It is available in a space-saving, 16-lead 3 mm × 3 mm LFCSP package and a 10-lead MSOP package. It is fully specified over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
