APPLICATIONS
�������������������������������
���
���
���
���
The PA08V is an extended supply range operational amplifier capable of output voltage swings of ±170V with dual
supplies or 340V total supply voltage on single or non-symmetric supplies.
High accuracy is achieved with a cascode input circuit configuration. All internal biasing is referenced to a zener diode
fed by a FET constant current source. As a result, the PA08
features an unprecedented supply range and excellent supply rejection. The output stage is biased class A-B for linear
operation. Internal phase compensation assures stability at all
gain settings. The safe operating area (SOA) can be observed
with all types of loads by choosing the appropriate current limiting resistors. For operation into inductive loads, two external
flyback pulse protection diodes are recommended. A heatsink
may be necessary to maintain the proper case temperature
under normal operating conditions.
This hybrid integrated circuit utilizes a beryllia (BeO) substrate, thick film resistors, ceramic capacitors, and semiconductor chips to maximize reliability, minimize size and give top
performance. Ultrasonically bonded aluminum wires provide
reliable interconnections at all operating temperatures. The
8-pin to TO-3 package is hermetically sealed and electrically
isolated. The use of compressible thermal isolation washers
and/or improper mounting torque will void the product warranty.

Specifications of the standard PA08 apply with the benefit
of supply ratings being extended to ±175V. Design changes
enabling the total supply rating of 350V have no effect on the
shape of the typical performance graphs.

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
��
SAFE OPERATING AREA
The extended safe operating area is as follows:
When operating on ±175V, maximum safe values of capacitive and inductive loading are .2µF and 200mH. Maximum safe
current limit for a short to common is 50mA, and for a short to
supply rails, the maximum is 15mA.
