The AD620 is a low cost, high accuracy instrumentation
amplifier that requires only one external resistor to set gains of
1 to 10,000. Furthermore, the AD620 features 8-lead SOIC and
DIP packaging that is smaller than discrete designs and offers
lower power (only 1.3 mA max supply current), making it a
good fit for battery-powered, portable (or remote) applications.
The AD620, with its high accuracy of 40 ppm maximum
nonlinearity, low offset voltage of 50 μV max, and offset drift of
0.6 μV/°C max, is ideal for use in precision data acquisition
systems, such as weigh scales and transducer interfaces.
Furthermore, the low noise, low input bias current, and low power
of the AD620 make it well suited for medical applications, such
as ECG and noninvasive blood pressure monitors.
The low input bias current of 1.0 nA max is made possible with
the use of Superϐeta processing in the input stage. The AD620
works well as a preamplifier due to its low input voltage noise of
9 nV/√Hz at 1 kHz, 0.28 μV p-p in the 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz band,
and 0.1 pA/√Hz input current noise. Also, the AD620 is well
suited for multiplexed applications with its settling time of 15 μs
to 0.01%, and its cost is low enough to enable designs with one
in-amp per channel.
