1GHz, Low-Power, SOT23, Current Feedback Amplifiers with Shutdown

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX4223-MAX4228 current-feedback amplifiers combine ultra-high-speed performance, low distortion, and excellent video specifications with low-power operation. The MAX4223/MAX4224/MAX4226/MAX4228 have a shutdown feature that reduces power-supply current to 350µA and places the outputs into a high-impedance state. These devices operate with dual supplies ranging from ±2.85V to ±5.5V and provide a typical output drive current of 80mA. The MAX4223/MAX4225/MAX4226 are optimized for a closed-loop gain of +1 (0dB) or more and have a -3dB bandwidth of 1GHz, while the MAX4224/MAX4227/MAX4228 are compensated for a closed-loop gain of +2 (6dB) or more, and have a -3dB bandwidth of 600MHz (1.2GHz gain-bandwidth product).

The MAX4223-MAX4228 are ideal for professional video applications, with differential gain and phase errors of 0.01% and 0.02°, 0.1dB gain flatness of 300MHz, and a 1100V/µs slew rate. Total harmonic distortion (THD) of -60dBc (10MHz) and an 8ns settling time to 0.1% suit these devices for driving high-speed analog-to-digital inputs or for data-communications applications. The low-power shutdown mode on the MAX4223/MAX4224/MAX4226/MAX4228 makes them suitable for portable and battery-powered applications. Their high output impedance in shutdown mode is excellent for multiplexing applications.

The single MAX4223/MAX4224 are available in space-saving 6-pin SOT23 packages. All devices are available in the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
