Recommended Inverting Gain Circuit Description The CLC505 is a programmable-supply current, current-feedback operational amplifier. Supply current and consequently dynamic performance can be easily adjusted by selecting the value of a single external resistor (Rp). DS012755-31 FIGURE 1. Recommended Non-Inverting Gain Circuit www.national.com 12 Rp is connected from pin 8 to −VCC and VCC =+/−3V. Now calculate Rp under new conditions: (Continued) Selecting an Operating Point Rp =[(+VCC−1.6V)−(−VCC)]/Ip The operating point is determined by the supply current, which in turn is determined by current (Ip) flowing out of pin 8. As the supply current is reduced the following effects will be observed: Rp =[(+3V−1.6V)−(−3V)]/26µA Specification Bandwidth Rise TIme Rp =169kΩ The CLC505 will have performance similar to Rp = 300kΩ shown on the datasheet, but with 40% less power dissipation due to the reduced supply voltages. (The op amp will also have a more restricted common-mode range and output swing.) This calculation is approximate and a prudent design would include substantial performance margin for max/min limits. Dynamic Shutdown Capability The CLC505 may be powered on and off very quickly by controlling the voltage applied to Rp. If Rp is connected between pin 8 and the output of a CMOS gate powered from ± 5V supplies, the gate can be used to turn the amplifier on and off. This is shown in Figure 3 below: Effect as ICC Decreases Decreases increases Output Drive Decreases Input Bias Current Decreases Input Impedance Increases (see source impedance discussion) Both the specification pages and the plot pages illustrate these effects to help make the supply current vs. performance tradeoff. Performance is specified and tested at ICC =1mA, 3.4mA, and 9mA as indicated in the datasheet. (Note some test conditions and especially the load resistance are different for the three supply current settlings.) The performance plots show typical performance for all three supply currents levels. When making the supply current vs. performance tradeoff, it is first a good idea to see if one of the standard operating points (ICC = 9mA, 3.4mA, or 1mA) fits the application. If it does, performance guaranteed on the specification pages will apply directly to your application. In addition, the value of Rp may be obtained directly from the specification page. The following discussion will assist in selecting ICC for applications that cannot operate at one of the specified supply current settlings. Use the typical performance plots for critical specifications to select the best ICC. Now interpolate between the values of ICC in the plots & specification tables to estimate the max/min values in the application. From the selected value of ICC the “programming current” (Ip) may be easily calculated: IP =ICC/39 DS012755-49 FIGURE 3. Dynamic Control of Power Consumption When the gate output is switched from high to low, the CLC505 will turn on. In the off state, the supply current typically reduces to 0.2mA or less. The speed with which the CLC505 turns on or off is limited by the capacitance at pin 8. To improve switching time, a speed up capacitor from the gate output to pin 8 is recommended. The value of this capacitor will depend on the total capacitance connected to pin 8 and is best established experimentally. Turn-on and turn-off times of 100ns to 200ns are achievable with ordinary CMOS gates. Example: An open collector logic device is used to dynamically control the power dissipation of the circuit. Here, the desired connection for Rp is from pin 8 to the open collector logic device. The plot of ICC vs Ip in the plot pages shows this relationship graphically. Knowing Ip leads to a direct calculation of Rp. Rp = [(+VPP−1.6)−Vn]/ Ip Rp =8.4/Ip (for +VCC =+5V and Vn =−5V) Vn is the voltage externally applied to Rp. (Throughout the data sheet and in most applications, Vn and −VCC are −5V.) The term (+VCC−1.6V) is the voltage at pin 8. DS012755-50 Now standard VCC, VEE and Rp does not have to be connected to −VCC. In applications where non-standard supply voltages are used or when there is a need to power down the op amp via digital logic control. The value of Rp is adjusted accordingly. First, an operating point needs to be determined from the plots & specifications as discussed above. From this, Ip is obtained. Ip, in concert with the available Vn determines Rp. Example An application requires that VCC = ± 3V and performance in the 1mA operating point range. The required Ip can therefore be determined as follows: Ip =26µA FIGURE 4. Controlling Power on State with TTL Logic When the logic gate goes low, the CLC505 is turned on. Performance desired is that given for ICC = 3.4mA under standard conditions. From the ICC vs. Ip plot, Ip = 84µA. Then calculating Rp: Rp =[(+VCC−1.6V)−(V n)]/Ip Rp =[(+5V−1.6V)−(0)]84µA Rp =40kΩ 13 www.national.com CLC505 Application Information CLC505 Application Information At ICC = 1mA and ICC = 3.4mA, the CLC505 is less capable of driving a 150Ω load due to output current limitations. For this reason lighter loads are used and the termination resistor is omitted. The gain and load resistance for ICC = 3.4mA are AV = +6 and RL = 500Ω and for ICC = 1mA; AV = +6 and RL = 1kΩ. (Continued) Slew Rate The rapid turn on and off ability of the CLC505 is not recommended for signal isolation applications (such as multiplexing). While the power dissipation of the amplifier drops in the off state, the amplifier may still have some gain at low frequencies. Causing feed through in multiplex application. The performance desired is that given for ICC = 3.4mA under standard conditions. From the ICC vs. Ip plot, Ip =84µA. Is obtained now calculating Rp: Slew rate limiting is a nonlinear response which occurs in amplifiers when the output voltage swing cannot change as rapidly as the applied input signal. The CLC505 has been designed to avoid slew rate limiting in most circuit configurations. The large signal (5VPP) bandwidth of 80MHz at ICC = 3.4mA, is only slightly less than the 100MHz small signal bandwidth. The result is a low distortion, linear system for both small and large signals over the required system frequency range. The CLC505 reaches slew rate limits only for small non-inverting gains. In other words, slew rate limiting is constrained by common mode voltage swings at the input. The large signal frequency response plot at a gain of +2 was a break in the response, which indicates that a slew rate limit has been reached. Note also that the frequency response plots at a gain of +21 for large and small signal responses are nearly identical. Differential Gain and Phase Differential gain and phase are measurements useful primarily in composite video channels. They are measured by monitoring the gain and phase changes of a high frequency carrier (3.58MHz typically) as the output of the amplifier is swept over a range of DC voltages. Specifications for the CLC505 include differential gain and phase. Test signals based on a 1VPP video level. Test conditions used are the following: DC sweep range: 0 to 100 IRE units (black to white) Carrier: 3.58MHz at 40 IRE units peak to peak The amplifier conditions are significantly different for the three values of supply current specified. At ICC = 9mA, the amplifier is specified for a gain of +2 and 150Ω load (for a backmatched 75Ω system). IRE amplitudes at ICC = 9mA, are referred to the 75Ω load resistor. www.national.com Source Impedance For best results, source impedance in the non-inverting circuit configuration (see Figure 1) should be kept below 5kΩ. Above 5kΩ it is possible for oscillation to occur, depending on other circuit board parasitics. For high signal source impedances, a resistor with a value of less than 5kΩ may be used to terminate the non-inverting input to ground. Feedback Resistor In current-feedback op amps, the value of the feedback resistor plays a major role in determining amplifier dynamics. It is important to select the correct value. The CLC505 provides optimum performance with a 1kΩ feedback resistor. Selection of an incorrect value can lead to severe rolloff in frequency response, (if the resistor value is too large) or peaking or oscillation, (if the value is too low.) Printed Circuit Layout As with any high frequency device, a good PCB layout will enhance performance. Ground plane construction and good power supply bypassing close to the package are critical to achieving full performance. In the non-inverting configuration, the amplifier is sensitive to stray capacitance to ground at the inverting input. Hence, the inverting node connections should be small with minimal coupling to the ground plane. Shunt capacitance across the feedback resistor should not be used to compensate for this effect. Precision buffed resistors (PRP8351 series from Precision Resistive Products) with low parasitic reactances were used to develop the data sheet specifications. Precision carbon composition resistors will also yield excellent results. Standard spirally-trimmed RN55D metal film resistors will work with a slight decrease in bandwidth due to their reactive nature at high frequencies. Evaluation PC boards (part number 730013 for through-hole and 730027 for SOIC) for the CLC505 are available. 14 CLC505 Physical Dimensions inches (millimeters) unless otherwise noted 8-Pin SOIC NS Package Number M08A 8-Pin MDIP NS Package Number N08E 15 www.national.com CLC505 High Speed, Programmable Supply Current, Monolithic Op Amp Notes LIFE SUPPORT POLICY NATIONAL’S PRODUCTS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED FOR USE AS CRITICAL COMPONENTS IN LIFE SUPPORT DEVICES OR SYSTEMS WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN APPROVAL OF THE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL COUNSEL OF NATIONAL SEMICONDUCTOR CORPORATION.
