I have a AD8000 SOIC package in noninverting configuration (Fig. 50 datasheet). Rf=439 ohms, Rs=0ohms, RL is open circuit, Rg = open circuit, 0.1 uF decoupling caps at supply pins. I am using +/-5V supply. I am interested in the performance at 1.25 GHz. I use -20 dBm input and get -26 dBm output at 1.25 GHz. I don't think this matches the performance shown in Fig.5 of datasheet. Can you suggest what I could change to make it work as expected?
Thanks for your response.
The figure 5 of the datasheet does not match Table 5 (Gain = 1 for SOIC). Why is that?
Could you elaborate on the parasitic capacitance you refer to. I have made sure there is no ground plane underneath the high speed signal traces. I do have a ground plane underneath the chip as in the datasheet (smaller than the datasheet with fewer vias). Let me know if you have layout recommendations. I have tried to follow those in your datasheet.
Also, if would be great if you have a sample gerber for this AD8000 SOIC chip, noninverting circuit. (Figure 50)
Thanks and look forward to your response.
