High Speed Summing Circuit using AD8130 (from AD-guide)

Hello alltogether,


I am currently developing a circuit for an important application that will be produced at a moderate number of pieces, so I need to know if the following AD components and schematic suits my purpose.

I need a fast summer circuit with high input impedance for several single ended input signals that are provided by several instrumentation amplifiers.


I found a schematic in "A Designers Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers" (from AD,  in Chapter VI, Page 6-12. The schematic describes a summing Circuit with High Input Impedance and four inputs using AD8130. You can see the circuit below:


I would like to know if it is possible to connect even more AD8130 to build a Summing Circuit with more Inputs (would look like a tree chart), without disturbing the signal quality and bandwidth. How will this affect the performance of the circuit? I attached a possible circuit below (green components added):


Thank you,
