I'm looking to use the ADL5205 Dual digital VGA but am confused by the rated input swing in the datasheet.
In Table 1 Page 3 it shows "Maximum input swing: 8 Vp-p" in the input stage section
In Table 3 Page 6 "Absolute Maximum Ratings" it says:
-"Input Voltage (VINx+, VINX-): -0.5V to +3.1V"
-"Differential Input Voltage((VINX+)-(VINX-)): +/- 1V"
So how can the input swing be 8 Vp-p with an absolute maximum differential voltage of +/- 1V?
Is there a mistake in the datasheet or am I misunderstanding this?
Moved your question to RF and Microwave community. RReeder will be able to assist you.
I look forward to hearing from him.
I have still not heard anything regarding my query.
Please could I get this clarification so that I can further my development with this component.
I'm also wondering. But maybe it has something to do with the gain setting.
The conditions for all the specs (probably including abs max) are: gain code 000000 (max gain).
The gain-code for the 8Vp-p input spec is 111111 (min gain).
