thermal issue with ad7626 single-ended circuit

Category: Hardware
Product Number: ad7626, ada4899-1
Software Version: n

1. I made a single-ended circuit by referring to the ad7626 data sheet.

The circuit is as follows.

2. I'm currently doing a good job ADC capturing signals on this circuit.

3. But the heat is about 50 degrees in ada4899-1.

4. I use the Precision ADC Drive Tool on the analog homepage, so use 100 ohms as shown below.

5. Even if I switch to 100 ohms, the heat keeps coming to ada4899-1.

6. Is there a problem with the ada4899-1 having a heat of about 50 degrees in the ad7626 single-ended circuit?

7. What's the way to solve this?

8. And why is the result of the single-ended circuit of AD7626 data sheet different from the Precision ADC Driver Tool of the Analyst homepage?
- Why is Datasheet telling me to use 590 ohms and Precision ADC Driver Tool not to use 590 ohms?

  • Hi  ,

    I have some comments and questions regarding this issue.

    Just for clarification, you encounter 50 degrees heat both in using 590 ohms and 100 ohms, is that right? One factor to look at is the exposed pad connection to the ground plane. This helps improve heat transfer to the ground plane. Can you verify that the exposed pad is properly connected to the ground plane? I'm also attaching the PCB layout section below.

    - Why is Datasheet telling me to use 590 ohms and Precision ADC Driver Tool not to use 590 ohms?  - the warning shown is for gain of 2V/V while your configuration is only at gain = 1V/V. This should work, although from the tool we can see that the plots are not displayed if we change the Rf above 120 ohms. I will try to contact the Precision ADC Driver Tool Platform to confirm if this is a tool limitation, or an issue.

    Best regards,


  • 안녕, ,

    귀하의 질문에 답변해 드리겠습니다.

    1. When using 590 ohms and 100 ohms, both ADA4899 generates 50 degrees of heat.

    The exposed pad of ADA4899 is correctly connected to the GND.
    I will attach the picture below. (Top Layer)

      Top Layer (Top silk)

    U9 and U10 are ADA4899.

    After looking at the ADA4899 PCB Layout you attached, I think there can be parallel capacitance in ADA4899.

      2 Layer (Top silk)

      3 Layer (Top silk)

      Bottom Layer (Top silk)

    But I don't think 0.2pF parasitic capacitance generates heat of 50 degrees.
    Wouldn't there be a problem in other parts?

    2. If you get an answer from Precision ADC Driver Tool Platform, please reply to me.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    Best guard,


  • Hi  ,

    Can you share the ambient temperature you are operating at, what is the power dissipation and what is your expected temperature on the ADA4899-1? Can you also share how are you measuring the temperature?

    "6. Is there a problem with the ada4899-1 having a heat of about 50 degrees in the ad7626 single-ended circuit?" - are you asking if it will damage the part? the junction temperature is rated at 150°C max.

    Best regards,


  • Hi,  

    1. I use a thermal imaging camera called Seek Thermal.

    So I'm looking at the approximate temperature.

    I didn't set the emissivity and reflection temperature values of the thermal imaging camera accurately.
    However, there is no difference of more than 3 degrees when measuring the temperature of human skin temperature, etc.

    2. This is a picture of the PCB with a thermal imaging camera.

    The white part has the highest temperature, and the device is ADA4899.

    If you zoom in on the picture, the white part on the top left is about 68 degrees.

    I thought ADA4899 is over 50 degrees with this.

    3. In addition, the PCB has various devices, making it difficult to measure only one power consumption of ADA4899.

    Can you measure the amount of power due to heat generation?

    4. A 50-degree heat does not damage ADA4899.
    However, ADA4899 has more heat than other devices.

    So I want to know the exact cause of that part.
