AD8138 datasheet



The AD8138 is a major advancement over op amps for differential signal processing. The IC can be used as a single-ended-to-differential amplifier or as a differential-to-differential amplifier.

The device eliminates the need for a transformer with high performance ADCs, preserving the low frequency and dc infor-mation. The common-mode level of the differential output is adjustable by a voltage on the VOCM pin, easily level-shifting the input signals for driving single-supply ADCs.
