White Paper Overview

This article from Analog Devices aims to help hardware designers with the design of wide bandwidth programmable gain instrumentation amplifiers (PGIAs) from the selection of off-the-shelf discrete components to performance evaluation and how to save time and reduce design iterations. The PGIA architecture presented is optimized for driving the high precision successive approximation register (SAR) architecture-based signal chain at full speed. The article also demonstrates the PGIA’s precision performance in driving wide bandwidth signal chains for various gain options.
