Hi, I am wondering what is the current limit on the AIN inputs for the AD9650,

I am designing a high speed sampling system that has a +-10V peak pulse so I need dc coupled inputs.

• Hi Lasse,

The AD9650 datasheet specifies an allowed voltage range for the input.  For normal operation, the AD9650 accepts a 0.9 V common mode voltage typically, but the common mode voltage can be increased as shown in Figure 67 of the datasheet to accommodate a 2.7 Vpp differential input.  To have a 2.7 Vpp differential input, each of the differential pins is allowed to swing 1.35V which is +/- 0.675 V.

So the max input is when the VIN+ pin = Vcm + 0.675; and the VIN- pin = Vcm - 0.675V.

While the min signal is the VIN+ pin = Vcm - 0.675; and the VIN- pin = Vcm + 0.675V.

Table 6 in the datasheet shows Maximum (not operating) range of the input pins to be -0.3 to AVDD + 0.2V.  Damage to the device will occur outside of this range.

I'm not sure how you planned to accommodate the +/- 10V peak pulse, perhaps with a resistor divider network?

Regards,

Anthony
