Comlinear CLC231
Fast Settling, Wideband Buff-Amp™ (Av = ±1 to ±5)
General Description
165MHz closed-loop – -3dB bandwidth
15ns settling to 0.05%
1mV input offset voltage, 10µV/°C drift
100mA output current
Excellent AC and DC linearity
The CLC231 is constructed using thin film resistor/bipolar transistor technology, and is available in the following versions:
Driving flash A/D converters
Precision line driving
(a gain of 2 cancels matched-line losses)
DAC current-to-voltage conversion
Low-power, high-speed applications
(50mW @ ±5V)

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 of National Semiconductor Corporation. As used herein:
1. Life support devices or systems are devices or systems which, a) are intended for surgical implant into the body, or b) support or
sustain life, and whose failure to perform, when properly used in accordance with instructions for use provided in the labeling, can
be reasonably expected to result in a significant injury to the user.
2. A critical component is any component of a life support device or system whose failure to perform can be reasonably expected to
cause the failure of the life support device or system, or to affect its safety or effectiveness.
