Transimpedance Amplifiers with Selectable Gain and Input Current Clamp

Replaces Discrete Amps for a Smaller Footprint and Better Consistency

Product Details

The MAX40213 is a transimpedance amplifier for optical distance measurement receivers in LiDAR applications. Low noise, high gain, low group delay, and fast recovery from overload make this TIA ideal for distance-measurement applications. Important features include 1.1pA/√Hz input-referred noise density, an internal 2A input clamp, pin-selectable 150kΩ and 750kΩ transimpedance (into a 1kΩ load), and wide bandwidth (300MHz, typ). An offset current input allows optional adjustment of input offset current. The MAX40213 has a shutdown (SD) control input that reduces the supply current to 0.01μA. This transimpedance amplifier is available in a 8-bump WLP, and is specified over the -40°C to +125°C operating temperature range.

Key Features

  • Optimized for CIN = 0.25pF to 5pF
  • Bandwidth = 300MHz (typ)
  • 1.1pA/√Hz Input-Referred Noise
  • Two Pin-Selectable Transimpedance Values (RL = 1kΩ)
    • 150kΩ
    • 750kΩ
  • Internal Clamp for Input Current up to 2A (Transient)
  • Fast Overload Recovery: 25ns at 100mA
  • Offset Input ​Provides Offset Adjust Feature
  • SD Input Shuts Down Internal Circuitry
  • 3.3V Operation
  • 1.75mm x 1.24mm, 8-Bump WLP

Description

The MAX40213 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled electrical demonstration kit that provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX40213 transimpedance amplifiers. Included in the EV kit are two different output circuits to accommodate different terminations on the equipment.

Note that the MAX40213 EV kit provides an electrical interface to the IC that is similar, but not the same as a photodiode.

The MAX40213 EV kit PCB comes with two MAX40213AWA+ installed.
