Using ADL6012 single endedly

ADL6012 has differential output pair. I want to use single ended output in my application. ADL6012 single ended output will go into comparator input. Can i use one output end of ADL6012 and terminate the other end with 50ohm resistor?

  • Hi Atif,

    You could try it, but performance will likely suffer greatly. We recommend differential treatment of the ADL6012 output. 

    If you do try the single-ended output, you might get best results with 100 Ohm diff. termination across both outputs, like shown in datasheet Fig. 64. You then drive the comparator single-ended. Again, this is not what we recommend, but perhaps an acceptable solution.  -Bruce H.
