The MAX4447/MAX4448/MAX4449 single-ended-to-differential line drivers are designed for high-speed communications. Using current feedback for greater bandwidth, these devices deliver full-power bandwidths up to 405MHz and feature slew rates as high as 6500V/µs. The MAX4447 has a fixed gain of +2V/V and a small-signal bandwidth of 430MHz. The MAX4448/MAX4449 have small-signal bandwidths of 330MHz and 400MHz, respectively, and are internally compensated for minimum gain configurations of +2V/V and +5V/V, respectively. For greater design flexibility, the MAX4448/MAX4449 allow for variable gain selection using external gain-setting resistors. A low-power enable mode reduces current consumption below 5.5mA and places the outputs in a high-impedance state.
The MAX4447/MAX4448/MAX4449 can deliver differential output swings of ±6.2V from ±5V supplies with a 50Ω load. Excellent differential gain/phase and noise specifications make these amplifiers ideal for a wide variety of video and RF signal-processing and transmission applications.
