ADG708 Power sequence

In terms of power sequencing for the ADG708 mux  is it OK to tie the ENABLE pin permanently to a system GND to permanently enable the multiplexer?
This means the enable input will be tied low as power is applied and I do not want to risk damage or stress to the CMOS etc
The multiplexer is used in a single supply 3V system
Many thanks for any info

  • Hi Elver,

    Tieing the ENABLE pin permanently to GND on the ADG708 CMOS switch, will ensure all 8 switch channel are off.

    See Truth Table below: (pg 11 of ADG708 Datasheet)

    Just so I am clear, is the main objective here to keep all 8-channels off, while the power is applied ?

  • Hi Kevin - sorry that was my error - I mean if the ENABLE is tied high so that the mux is permannently enabled

  • Hi Elver,

    Would you be able to provide an image or a block diagram of your application.

    If Enable is tied high depending on the inputs to the Analog input channels any number of switch channels could be ON.

    To answer your question on risk of damage, the least risk of damage will be when the switch is OFF or when the switch is ON and within the Performance / Max Rating of the device.

    Will need more information here to fully answer this questions, please provide block diagram / circuit image.
