Could anyone please help me find the "Analog Bridge Wizard", a simulation tool from AD that works with INAMPs?
Thanks a lot,
We retired this tool several years ago. Maybe I can help? What problem were you looking to solve with the Analog Bridge Wizard?
Tanks a lot for your reply.
I have used it in the past and just thought of using it again to select an IN-AMP.
I was asked for advice about an instrumentation amplifier.
Meanwhile I found out I need to discuss with my colleagues involved in the project, in order to clarify the specs they need.
Afterwards, I have to select the IN-AMP. Is there a simulator you would recommend for that purpose?
There are three tools that may be useful for you.
- In the initial selection process, you can use the parametric search table to narrow down to a few parts that look interesting to you, by filtering and sorting by specifications you care about. Our in amp spec database has a lot extra parameters we couldn't fit on the screen, so please make sure and use the "Choose parameters' button to access the extra specs and see if any look interesting to you.
- Once you have a few parts, you might want to check them out using the in amp diamond plot tool. An in amp's input range, output range, and gain are interdependent and can be kind of confusing. This tool will show you whether the part will meet your input and output range specifications.
- Once you've decided on a part, you can use LTspice to analyze your circuit. Unfortunately we haven't yet imported our in amps into LTspice, so you would have to manually import the model in for now. Alternatively, you can use ADISimPE which should have the in amps already in its library.
Thanks a lot for all the suggestions.
I'm already familiar with IN-AMP diamond tool. It is very useful to check input range and internal saturation.
I will take into account your other suggestions as well.
Thank you once more.
