RE: AD8135 as input buffer for AD9235 ADC

We are using AD8135 as input buffer for AD9235 80 MS/s differential input ADC.


The problem appeared when we try to use it as a single ended input buffer to differential output.

Example: Vcomm = 0.8V (Vdd+ = 3.3V, Vdss = 0V).

Vin = 1V, we expect:

+OUT to be 0.9V,

-OUT to be 0.7V


-OUT never goes below 0.8V.

To fix this we had to add negative supply. This is NOT mentioned in the specs!!!


Can you confirm, or we did something wrong?
