Analog Devices AD8338 Variable Gain Amplifier
Analog Devices AD8338 18MHz Variable Gain Amplifier is designed for applications that require a fully differential signal path, low power, low noise, and a well-defined gain over frequencies from LF to 18MHz. The device can also operate using single-ended sources if required. The basic gain function is linear-in-dB with a nominal gain range of 0dB to 80dB; the nominal gain range corresponds to a control voltage on the GAIN pin of 0.1V to 1.1V. The gain range can be adjusted up or down via direct access to the internal summing nodes at the INPD and INMD pins. ADI AD8338 includes additional circuits to enable offset correction and automatic gain control. This ADI VGA is ideal for use in a variety of applications, including front end for inductive telemetry systems.
