Quad-channel feedback amplifier combines high performance and low power

Milpitas, Calif. — Designed to drive high-quality video, Intersil Corp. proclaimed an ultra-wideband, low-power, four-channel current feedback amplifier featuring a slew rate of 5000 V/μs and 500 MHz of gain bandwidth on all four channels.

With a supply current of 1.5 mA and the ability to operate off a split ±5 V or single 5 V to 10 V supplies, the amplifier is the industry's fastest quad amplifier, said Sameer Vuyyuru, director of marketing for Intersil's high-speed analog products.

It is suitable for space-constrained applications where driving multiple signals in parallel with minimal distortion is required. The device has the ability to drive heavy loads and to replicate even square waves effortlessly because of its super high slew rate, Vuyyuru said. The amplifier can also be used in monitor applications, handheld, portable or battery-powered equipment.

The amplifier has an improved output stage that provides 100-mA output drive on less than 1.5-mA power consumption. It operates over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

The EL5462 is available now in 14-pin SO packages. The suggested price in 10,000-unit quantities is $1.49 for each IC. Click here for the EL5462 data sheet.
