Note 1: Absolute Maximum Ratings indicate limits beyond which damage to the device may occur.
Note 2: Operating ratings indicate conditions for which the device is functional, but do not guarantee specific performance limits. For guaranteed specifications and
test conditions, see the Electrical Characteristics. The guaranteed specifications apply only for the test conditions listed. Some performance characteristics may
change when the device is not operated under the listed test conditions.
Note 3: All voltages are measured with respect to GND, unless otherwise specified.
Note 4: Calculated value from Voltage Gain test on each channel.
Note 5: Linearity Error is the variation in dc gain from VIN = 1.0V to VIN = 4.5V.
Note 6: Input from signal generator: tr, tf < 1 ns.

Note: 8 pF load includes parasitic capacitance.
FIGURE 2. Test Circuit (One Channel)
Figure 2 shows a typical test circuit for evaluation of the LM2409. This circuit is designed to allow testing of the LM2409 in a 50Ω
environment without the use of an expensive FET probe. The 4950Ω resistor at the output forms a 100:1 voltage divider when
connected to a 50Ω load.
