The LT6552 is a video difference amplifier optimized for low voltage single supply operation. This versatile amplifier features uncommitted high input impedance (+) and (–) inputs and can be used in differential or single-ended configurations. A second set of inputs gives gain adjustment and DC control to the differential amplifier.

On a single 3.3V supply, the input voltage range extends from ground to 1.3V and the output swings from ground to 2.9V while driving a 150 Ohm load. The LT6552 features 75MHz – 3dB bandwidth, 600V/µs slew rate, and ±70mA output current making it ideal for driving cables directly. The LT6552 maintains its performance for supplies from 3V to 12.6V and is fully specified at 3.3V, 5V and ±5V supplies. The shutdown feature reduces power dissipation to less than 1m Ohm and allows multiple amplifiers to drive the same cable.

The LT6552 is available in the 8-lead SO package as well as a tiny, dual fine pitch leadless package (DFN). The device is specified over the commercial and industrial temperature ranges.
