4GHz Amplifier Achieves <1pA Input Bias Current over
–40°C to 85°C Temperature Range
MILPITAS, CA – May 13, 2015 – Linear Technology announces the LTC6268-10 single and
dual LTC6269-10 4GHz FET-input op amps for high dynamic range and high speed
transimpedance amplifier (TIA) applications. These new decompensated amplifiers extend the
speed and dynamic range capabilities of this ultralow bias current op amp family for applications
with a gain of 10 or higher. Input bias current is 0.9pA max over the –40°C to 85°C temperature
range and just 4pA max over the entire –40°C to 125°C temperature range. Wideband voltage
and current noise is 4nV/√Hz and 7fA/√Hz, respectively. With 0.45pF input capacitance and
1000V/µs slew rate, the LTC6268-10 and LTC6269-10 are well suited for photodiode and
photomultiplier (PMT) circuits, high impedance sensor applications and for driving analog-todigital converters (ADCs).
The LTC6268-10 data sheet features circuit and layout techniques to maximize TIA
performance, with example circuits ranging from 20kΩ transimpedance gain at 210MHz
bandwidth, to 402kΩ transimpedance gain at 34MHz bandwidth. The LTC6268-10 is available in
a 6-lead SOT-23 package, as well as an 8-lead SOIC with guard pins to protect against board
leakage currents. The LTC6269-10 is available in an MSOP-8 with exposed pad and in
3mm x 3mm DFN-10 packages. The LTC6268-10 and LTC6269-10 are fully specified over the
industrial –40°C to 85°C and –40°C to 125°C temperature ranges. Prices start at $2.90 each for
the LTC6268-10 and $4.90 each for the LTC6269-10 each in 1000-piece quantities. For more
