ADA4940-1 single ended input

Good day,

I'm struggling to understand this FDA.

I plan to have a resistor divider which will output 4V at full scale. I'll then feed this output to an AD8421, which will give a gain of 2 and level shift the output down so as to center the signal at 0V. The signal will then have a range from -4 to 4V. I then want to feed this signal to the ADA4940-1 to drive the AD7768 ADC over it's full range.

The ADA4940-1 will be fed a Vocm from the AD7768 of 2.5V.

Here is the output of the Diff-Amp calculator :

Which seems perfect, but when I try to simulate I get the following:

Here is my simulation using the ltspice simulation model downloaded from the ADC driver tool. After downloading I edited it to a single ended input driven by the AD8421 with sinusoidal source.


and here I have simulated it using the macromodel from your website:


using the macromodel my results are completely incorrect and each output seems to be stuck at the rails.

Any help will really be appreciated. Thanks in advance
