Differential Input

Category: Datasheet/Specs
Product Number: AD8318

Can the AD8318 can be used with differential inputs?

I see this question has been asked before but I don't see a definitive answer anywhere.

The datasheet is not clear.

We have a project on a small PCB that has 2 AD8318s and an ADF5355. We are having feedthrough noise issues and are wondering if a fully differential signal chain would help solve them.


  • Hi Mark,

    do you see VCO feedtrough or reference feedtrough? ADF5355's fundamental VCO feedtrough and RFOUTB's feedthrough are demonstrated on the datasheet. do you see greater levels compared to the datasheet? I can remind you that these values can be seen when the RFOUTB is disabled from the register.
