APPLICATIONS Ultrasound and Sonar Time-Gain Control High Performance AGC Systems Signal Measurement
The AD604 is an ultralow noise, very accurate, dual channel, linear-in-dB variable gain amplifier (VGA) optimized for timebased variable gain control in ultrasound applications; however it will support any application requiring low noise, wide bandwidth variable gain control. Each channel of the AD604 provides a 300 kΩ input resistance and unipolar gain control for ease of use. User determined gain ranges, gain scaling (dB/V) and dc level shifting of output further optimize application performance. Each channel of the AD604 utilizes a high performance preamplifier that provides an input referred noise voltage of 0.8 nV/√Hz. The very accurate linear-in-dB response of the AD604 is achieved with the differential input exponential amplifier (DSX-AMP) architecture. Each of the DSX-AMPs comprise a variable attenuator of 0 dB to 48.36 dB followed by a high speed fixed gain amplifier. The attenuator is based on a seven stage R-1.5R ladder network. The attenuation between tap points is 6.908 dB and 48.36 dB for the ladder network. Each independent channel of the AD604 provides a gain range of 48 dB which can be optimized for the application by programming the preamplifier with a single external resistor in the preamp feedback path. The linear-in-dB gain response of the AD604 can be described by the equation: G (dB) = (Gain Scaling (dB/V ) × VGN (V )) + (Preamp Gain (dB) – 19 dB). Preamplifier gains between 5 and 10 (+14 dB and +20 dB)
provide overall gain ranges per channel of 0 dB through +48 dB and +6 dB through +54 dB. The two channels of the AD604 can be cascaded to provide greater levels of gain range by bypassing the 2nd channel’s preamplifier. However, in multiple channel systems, cascading the AD604 with other devices in the AD60x VGA family, which do not include a preamplifier may provide a more efficient solution. The AD604 provides access to the output of the preamplifier allowing for external filtering between the preamplifier and the differential attenuator stage. The gain control interface provides an input resistance of approximately 2 MΩ and scale factors from 20 dB/V to 30 dB/V for a VREF input voltage of 2.5 V to 1.67 V respectively. Note that scale factors up to 40 dB/V are achievable with reduced accuracy for scales above 30 dB/V. The gain scales linear-in-dB with control voltages of 0.4 V to 2.4 V with the 20 dB/V scale. Below and above this gain control range, the gain begins to deviate from the ideal linear-in-dB control law. The gain control region below 0.1 V is not used for gain control. In fact when the gain control voltage is <50 mV the amplifier channel is powered down to 1.9 mA. The AD604 is available in a 24-pin plastic SSOP, SOIC and DIP, and is guaranteed for operation over the –40°C to +85°C temperature range.
