The AD524 is a precision monolithic instrumentation amplifier
designed for data acquisition applications requiring high accu-
racy under worst-case operating conditions. An outstanding
combination of high linearity, high common mode rejection, low
offset voltage drift and low noise makes the AD524 suitable for
use in many data acquisition systems.
The AD524 has an output offset voltage drift of less than 25 µV/°C,
input offset voltage drift of less than 0.5 µV/°C, CMR above
90 dB at unity gain (120 dB at G = 1000) and maximum non-
linearity of 0.003% at G = 1. In addition to the outstanding dc
specifications, the AD524 also has a 25 kHz gain bandwidth
product (G = 1000). To make it suitable for high speed data
acquisition systems the AD524 has an output slew rate of 5 V/µs
and settles in 15 µs to 0.01% for gains of 1 to 100.
As a complete amplifier the AD524 does not require any exter-
nal components for fixed gains of 1, 10, 100 and 1000. For
other gain settings between 1 and 1000 only a single resistor is
required. The AD524 input is fully protected for both power-on
and power-off fault conditions.
The AD524 IC instrumentation amplifier is available in four
different versions of accuracy and operating temperature range.
The economical “A” grade, the low drift “B” grade and lower
drift, higher linearity “C” grade are specified from –25°C to
+85°C. The “S” grade guarantees performance to specification
over the extended temperature range –55°C to +125°C. Devices
are available in 16-lead ceramic DIP and SOIC packages and a
20-terminal leadless chip carrier.
