LMC6484 CMOS Quad Rail-to-Rail Input and Output Operational Amplifier General Description Features The LMC6484 provides a common-mode range that extends to both supply rails. This rail-to-rail performance combined with excellent accuracy, due to a high CMRR, makes it unique among rail-to-rail input amplifiers. It is ideal for systems, such as data acquisition, that require a large input signal range. The LMC6484 is also an excellent upgrade for circuits using limited common-mode range amplifiers such as the TLC274 and TLC279. Maximum dynamic signal range is assured in low voltage and single supply systems by the LMC6484’s rail-to-rail output swing. The LMC6484’s rail-to-rail output swing is guaranteed for loads down to 600Ω. Guaranteed low voltage characteristics and low power dissipation make the LMC6484 especially well-suited for battery-operated systems. See the LMC6482 data sheet for a Dual CMOS operational amplifier with these same features.

Application Information 1.0 Amplifier Topology The LMC6484 incorporates specially designed wide-compliance range current mirrors and the body effect to extend input common mode range to each supply rail. Complementary paralleled differential input stages, like the type used in other CMOS and bipolar rail-to-rail input amplifiers, were not used because of their inherent accuracy problems due to CMRR, cross-over distortion, and open-loop gain variation. The LMC6484’s input stage design is complemented by an output stage capable of rail-to-rail output swing even when driving a large load. Rail-to-rail output swing is obtained by taking the output directly from the internal integrator instead of an output buffer stage. DS011714-12 2.0 Input Common-Mode Voltage Range Unlike Bi-FET amplifier designs, the LMC6484 does not exhibit phase inversion when an input voltage exceeds the negative supply voltage. Figure 1 shows an input voltage exceeding both supplies with no resulting phase inversion on the output. FIGURE 2. A ± 7.5V Input Signal Greatly Exceeds the 3V Supply in Figure 3 Causing No Phase Inversion Due to RI Applications that exceed this rating must externally limit the maximum input current to ± 5 mA with an input resistor as shown in Figure 3. DS011714-11 FIGURE 3. RI Input Current Protection for Voltages Exceeding the Supply Voltage 3.0 Rail-To-Rail Output The approximated output resistance of the LMC6484 is 180Ω sourcing and 130Ω sinking at VS = 3V and 110Ω sourcing and 83Ω sinking at VS = 5V. Using the calculated output resistance, maximum output voltage swing can be estimated as a function of load. DS011714-10 FIGURE 1. An Input Voltage Signal Exceeds the LMC6484 Power Supply Voltages with No Output Phase Inversion The absolute maximum input voltage is 300 mV beyond either supply rail at room temperature. Voltages greatly ex- www.national.com 4.0 Capacitive Load Tolerance The LMC6484 can typically directly drive a 100 pF load with VS = 15V at unity gain without oscillating. The unity gain follower is the most sensitive configuration. Direct capacitive 12 Application Information (Continued) loading reduces the phase margin of op-amps. The combination of the op-amp’s output impedance and the capacitive load induces phase lag. This results in either an underdamped pulse response or oscillation. Capacitive load compensation can be accomplished using resistive isolation as shown in Figure 4. This simple technique is useful for isolating the capacitive input of multiplexers and A/D converters. DS011714-17 DS011714-16 FIGURE 4. Resistive Isolation of a 330 pF Capacitive Load FIGURE 7. Pulse Response of LMC6484 Circuit in Figure 6 5.0 Compensating for Input Capacitance It is quite common to use large values of feedback resistance with amplifiers that have ultra-low input current, like the LMC6484. Large feedback resistors can react with small values of input capacitance due to transducers, photodiodes, and circuit board parasitics to reduce phase margins. DS011714-18 FIGURE 5. Pulse Response of the LMC6484 Circuit in Figure 4 DS011714-19 FIGURE 8. Canceling the Effect of Input Capacitance Improved frequency response is achieved by indirectly driving capacitive loads as shown in Figure 6. The effect of input capacitance can be compensated for by adding a feedback capacitor. The feedback capacitor (as in Figure 8 ), Cf, is first estimated by: or R1 CIN ≤ R2 Cf which typically provides significant overcompensation. Printed circuit board stray capacitance may be larger or smaller than that of a breadboard, so the actual optimum value for Cf may be different. The values of Cf should be checked on the actual circuit. (Refer to the LMC660 quad CMOS amplifier data sheet for a more detailed discussion.) DS011714-15 FIGURE 6. LMC6484 Non-Inverting Amplifier, Compensated to Handle a 330 pF Capacitive Load R1 and C1 serve to counteract the loss of phase margin by feeding forward the high frequency component of the output signal back to the amplifier’s inverting input, thereby preserving phase margin in the overall feedback loop. The values of R1 and C1 are experimentally determined for the desired pulse response. The resulting pulse response can be seen in Figure 7. 6.0 Printed-Circuit-Board Layout for High-Impedance Work It is generally recognized that any circuit which must operate with less than 1000 pA of leakage current requires special layout of the PC board. when one wishes to take advantage 13 www.national.com Application Information (Continued) of the ultra-low input current of the LMC6484, typically less than 20 fA, it is essential to have an excellent layout. Fortunately, the techniques of obtaining low leakages are quite simple. First, the user must not ignore the surface leakage of the PC board, even though it may sometimes appear acceptably low, because under conditions of high humidity or dust or contamination, the surface leakage will be appreciable. To minimize the effect of any surface leakage, lay out a ring of foil completely surrounding the LMC6484’s inputs and the terminals of capacitors, diodes, conductors, resistors, relay terminals, etc. connected to the op-amp’s inputs, as in Figure 9. To have a significant effect, guard rings should be placed in both the top and bottom of the PC board. This PC foil must then be connected to a voltage which is at the same voltage as the amplifier inputs, since no leakage current can flow between two points at the same potential. For example, a PC board trace-to-pad resistance of 1012Ω, which is normally considered a very large resistance, could leak 5 pA if the trace were a 5V bus adjacent to the pad of the input. This would cause a 250 times degradation from the LMC6484’s actual performance. However, if a guard ring is held within 5 mV of the inputs, then even a resistance of 1011Ω would cause only 0.05 pA of leakage current. See Figure 10 for typical connections of guard rings for standard op-amp configurations. DS011714-21 Inverting Amplifier DS011714-22 Non-Inverting Amplifier DS011714-23 Follower FIGURE 10. Typical Connections of Guard Rings The designer should be aware that when it is inappropriate to lay out a PC board for the sake of just a few circuits, there is another technique which is even better than a guard ring on a PC board: Don’t insert the amplifier’s input pin into the board at all, but bend it up in the air and use only air as an insulator. Air is an excellent insulator. In this case you may have to forego some of the advantages of PC board construction, but the advantages are sometimes well worth the effort of using point-to-point up-in-the-air wiring. See Figure 11. DS011714-20 FIGURE 9. Example of Guard Ring in P.C. Board Layout DS011714-24 (Input pins are lifted out of PC board and soldered directly to components. All other pins connected to PC board.) FIGURE 11. Air Wiring www.national.com 14 Application Information (Continued) 7.0 Offset Voltage Adjustment Offset voltage adjustment circuits are illustrated in Figures 13, 14. Large value resistances and potentiometers are used to reduce power consumption while providing typically ± 2.5 mV of adjustment range, referred to the input, for both configurations with VS = ± 5V. DS011714-26 FIGURE 13. Non-Inverting Configuration Offset Voltage Adjustment 8.0 Upgrading Applications The LMC6484 quads and LMC6482 duals have industry standard pin outs to retrofit existing applications. System performance can be greatly increased by the LMC6484’s features. The key benefit of designing in the LMC6484 is increased linear signal range. Most op-amps have limited input common mode ranges. Signals that exceed this range generate a non-linear output response that persists long after the input signal returns to the common mode range. Linear signal range is vital in applications such as filters where signal peaking can exceed input common mode ranges resulting in output phase inversion or severe distortion. DS011714-25 FIGURE 12. Inverting Configuration Offset Voltage Adjustment 9.0 Data Acquisition Systems Low power, single supply data acquisition system solutions are provided by buffering the ADC12038 with the LMC6484 (Figure 14). Capable of using the full supply range, the LMC6484 does not require input signals to be scaled down to meet limited common mode voltage ranges. The LMC6484 CMRR of 82 dB maintains integral linearity of a 12-bit data acquisition system to ± 0.325 LSB. Other rail-to-rail input amplifiers with only 50 dB of CMRR will degrade the accuracy of the data acquisition system to only 8 bits. 15 www.national.com Application Information (Continued) DS011714-28 FIGURE 14. Operating from the same Supply Voltage, the LMC6484 buffers the ADC12038 maintaining excellent accuracy cations that benefit from these features include analytic medical instruments, magnetic field detectors, gas detectors, and silicon-based transducers. A small valued potentiometer is used in series with Rg to set the differential gain of the 3 op-amp instrumentation circuit in Figure 15. This combination is used instead of one large valued potentiometer to increase gain trim accuracy and reduce error due to vibration. 10.0 Instrumentation Circuits The LMC6484 has the high input impedance, large common-mode range and high CMRR needed for designing instrumentation circuits. Instrumentation circuits designed with the LMC6484 can reject a larger range of common-mode signals than most in-amps. This makes instrumentation circuits designed with the LMC6484 an excellent choice for noisy or industrial environments. Other appli- DS011714-29 FIGURE 15.

Low Voltage Peak Detector with Rail-to-Rail Peak Capture Range In Figure 23 dielectric absorption and leakage is minimized by using a polystyrene or polyethylene hold capacitor. The droop rate is primarily determined by the value of CH and diode leakage current. The ultra-low input current of the LMC6484 has a negligible effect on droop. DS011714-38 FIGURE 24. Rail-to-Rail Sample and Hold The LMC6484’s high CMRR (85 dB) allows excellent accuracy throughout the circuit’s rail-to-rail dynamic capture range. DS011714-27 FIGURE 25. Rail-to-Rail Single Supply Low Pass Filter The low pass filter circuit in Figure 25 can be used as an anti-aliasing filter with the same voltage supply as the A/D converter. Filter designs can also take advantage of the LMC6484 ultra-low input current. The ultra-low input current yields negligible offset error even when large value resistors are used. This in turn allows the use of smaller valued capacitors which take less board space and cost less. 19 www.national.com Physical Dimensions inches (millimeters) unless otherwise noted 14-Pin Ceramic Dual-In-Line Package Order Number LMC6484AMJ/883, LMC6484AMWG/883 NS Package Number J14A, WG14A www.national.com 20 Physical Dimensions inches (millimeters) unless otherwise noted (Continued) 14-Pin Small Outline Order Package Number LMC6484AIM or LMC6484IM NS Package Number M14A 21 www.national.com LMC6484 CMOS Quad Rail-to-Rail Input and Output Operational Amplifier Physical Dimensions inches (millimeters) unless otherwise noted (Continued) 14-Pin Molded DIP Order Package Number LMC6484AIN, LMC6484IN or LMC6484MN NS Package Number N14A 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.
