The AD9100 is a monolithic track-and-hold amplifier which
sets a new standard for high speed and high dynamic range
applications. It is fabricated in a mature high speed complemen-
tary bipolar process. In addition to innovative design topologies,
a custom package is utilized to minimize parasitics and optimize
Acquisition time (hold to track) is 13 ns to 0.1% accuracy, and
16 ns to 0.01%. The AD9100 boasts superlative hold-mode
frequency domain performance; when sampling at 30 MSPS
hold mode distortion is less than 83 dBfs for analog frequencies
up to 12 MHz; and –74 dBfs at 20 MHz. The AD9100 can also
drive capacitive loads up to 100 pF with little degradation in
acquisition time; it is therefore well suited to drive 8- and 10-bit
flash converters at clock speeds to 50 MSPS. With a spectral
noise density of 3.3 nV/√Hz and feedthrough rejection of 83 dB
at 20 MHz, the AD9100 is well suited to enhance the dynamic
range of many 8- to 16-bit systems.

The AD9100 is “user friendly” and easy to apply: (1) it requires
+5 V/–5.2 V power supplies; (2) the hold capacitor and switch
power supply decoupling capacitors are built into the DIP pack-
age; (3) the encode clock is differential ECL to minimize clock
jitter; (4) the input resistance is typically 800 kΩ; (5) the analog
input is internally clamped to prevent damage from voltage
The AD9100 is available in a 20-lead side-brazed “skinny DIP”
package. Commercial, industrial, and military temperature
grade parts are available. Consult the factory for information
about the availability of 883-qualified devices.
