Input protection for AD7740

Question asked by mantoa on Jan 29, 2014

The circuit I used is an op amp output pin connect to AD7740 input pin.

I need input span -0.15V to +2.5V for AD7740.

But input pin of AD7740 must not be lower than -0.3V.

If the output of op amp series with a resistor than a shottky diode to the GND pin,

it seem can protect AD7740 from input pin to lower than -0.3V.

The shottky diode forward voltage vary with operation temperature. 

I cannot keep the input span -0.15V to +2.5V.

Can you suggest how can I do?

Thank you.
