High-Speed, Low-Noise Differential Line Driver

The circuit of Figure 11 is a unique line driver widely used in

industrial applications. With ±18 V supplies, the line driver can

deliver a differential signal of 30 V p-p into a 2.5 kΩ load. The

high slew rate and wide bandwidth of the OP285 combine to

yield a full power bandwidth of 130 kHz while the low noise

front end produces a referred-to-input noise voltage spectral

density of 10 nV/√Hz. The design is a transformerless, balanced

transmission system where output common-mode rejection of

noise is of paramount importance. Like the transformer-based

design, either output can be shorted to ground for unbalanced

line driver applications without changing the circuit gain of 1.

Other circuit gains can be set according to the equation in the

diagram. This allows the design to be easily set to noninverting,

inverting, or differential operation.

Low Phase Error Amplifier

The simple amplifier configuration of Figure 12 uses the OP285

and resistors to reduce phase error substantially over a wide

frequency range when compared to conventional amplifier designs.

This technique relies on the matched frequency characteristics

of the two amplifiers in the OP285. Each amplifier in the circuit

has the same feedback network which produces a circuit gain of

10. Since the two amplifiers are set to the same gain and are

matched due to the monolithic construction of the OP285, they

will exhibit identical frequency response. Recall from feedback

theory that a pole of a feedback network becomes a zero in the

loop gain response. By using this technique, the dominant pole

of the amplifier in the feedback loop compensates for the domi-

nant pole of the main amplifier,

thereby reducing phase error dramatically. This is shown in

Figure 13 where the 10x composite amplifier’s phase response

exhibits less than 1.5° phase shift through 500 kHz. On the other

hand, the single gain stage amplifier exhibits 25° of phase shift

over the same frequency range. An additional benefit of the low

phase error configuration is constant group delay, by virtue of

constant phase shift at all frequencies below 500 kHz. Although

this technique is valid for minimum circuit gains of 10, actual

closed-loop magnitude response must be optimized for the

amplifier chosen.

Fast Current Pump

A fast, 30 mA current source, illustrated in Figure 14, takes

advantage of the OP285’s speed and high output current drive.

This is a variation of the Howland current source where a sec-

ond amplifier, A2, is used to increase load current accuracy and

output voltage compliance. With supply voltages of ±15 V, the

output voltage compliance of the current pump is ±8 V. To

keep the output resistance in the MΩ range requires that 0.1%

or better resistors be used in the circuit. The gain of the current

pump can be easily changed according to the equations shown

in the diagram.

A Low Noise, High Speed Instrumentation Amplifier

A high speed, low noise instrumentation amplifier, constructed

with a single OP285, is illustrated in Figure 15. The circuit exhibits

less than 1.2 µV p-p noise (RTI) in the 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz band

and an input noise voltage spectral density of 9 nV/√Hz (1 kHz)

at a gain of 1000. The gain of the amplifier is easily set by R

The advantages of a two op amp instrumentation amplifier

based on a dual op amp is that the errors in the individual am-

plifiers tend to cancel one another. For example, the circuit’s

input offset voltage is determined by the input offset voltage

matching of the OP285, which is typically less than 250 µV.

Figure 15. A High-Speed Instrumentation Amplifier

Common-mode rejection of the circuit is limited by the matching

of resistors R1 to R4. For good common-mode rejection, these

resistors ought to be matched to better than 1%. The circuit was

constructed with 1% resistors and included potentiometer P1

for trimming the CMRR and a capacitor C1 for trimming the

CMRR. With these two trims, the circuit’s common-mode

rejection was better than 95 dB at 60 Hz and better than 65 dB

at 10 kHz. For the best common-mode rejection performance,

use a matched (better than 0.1%) thin-film resistor network for

R1 through R4 and use the variable capacitor to optimize the

circuit’s CMR.

The instrumentation amplifier exhibits very wide small- and

large-signal bandwidths regardless of the gain setting, as shown

in the table. Because of its low noise, wide gain-bandwidth

product, and high slew rate, the OP285 is ideally suited for high

speed signal conditioning applications.

A 3-Pole, 40 kHz Low-Pass Filter

The closely matched and uniform ac characteristics of the OP285

make it ideal for use in GIC (Generalized Impedance Converter)

and FDNR (Frequency Dependent Negative Resistor) filter appli-

cations. The circuit in Figure 16 illustrates a linear-phase,

3-pole, 40 kHz low-pass filter using an OP285 as an inductance

simulator (gyrator). The circuit uses one OP285 (A2 and A3)

for the FDNR and one OP285 (Al and A4) as an input buffer

and bias current source for A3. Amplifier A4 is configured in a

gain of 2 to set the pass band magnitude response to 0 dB. The

benefits of this filter topology over classical approaches are

that the op amp used in the FDNR is not in the signal path and

that the filter’s performance is relatively insensitive to compo-

nent variations. Also, the configuration is such that large signal

levels can be handled without overloading any of the filter’s

internal nodes. As shown in Figure 17, the OP285’s symmetric

slew rate and low distortion produce a clean, well-behaved

transient response.

Driving Capacitive Loads

The OP285 was designed to drive both resistive loads to 600 Ω

and capacitive loads of over 1000 pF and maintain stability. While

there is a degradation in bandwidth when driving capacitive loads,

the designer need not worry about device stability. The graph in

Figure 18 shows the 0 dB bandwidth of the OP285 with capacitive

loads from 10 pF to 1000 pF.
