AD7739 AIN Protection

Question asked by Lyn on Dec 25, 2012

The AD7739 datasheet states that the device can operate with +/- 2.5 volt inputs.


The Absolute Maximum ratings for the AIN pins are listed as -0.3V to AVDD + 0.3V which would appear to contradict the input voltage range.


I wish to use the device with an external instrumentation amplifier operating with supplies of ca +/- 15V and a ouput voltage range of +/- 2V in normal operation.


How should I protect the input of the AD7739 from overvoltage ouput of the instrumentation amplifier.
