ADI's AD8421 is a low power, extremely-low noise, ultra-low bias current, high speed instrumentation amplifier, ideally suited for a broad spectrum of signal conditioning and data acquisition applications. This breakthrough product features the highest CMRR available, allowing it to extract low-level signals in the presence of high-frequency common mode noise over a wide temperature range.
The 10 MHz bandwidth, 35 V/µs slew rate, and 0.7 µs settling time to 0.01% (G = 1) allow the AD8421 to amplify high-speed signals and excel in applications that require high channel-count multiplexed systems. Even at high gain, the current feedback architecture preserves this performance. For example, at G = 100, the bandwidth is 2 MHz and the settling time is 0.6 µs. The AD8421 has excellent distortion performance, allowing use in demanding applications such as vibration analysis.
The AD8421 delivers industry-leading 3 nV/√Hz input voltage noise and 200 fA/√Hz current noise with only 2 mA quiescent current, making it an ideal choice for measuring low-level signals. For applications with significant source impedance, the AD8421 employs novel process technology and innovative design techniques to provide groundbreaking noise performance limited only by the sensor.
