DESCRIPTIO
The LT®1229/LT1230 dual and quad 100MHz current
feedback amplifiers are designed for maximum performance in small packages. Using industry standard pinouts,
the dual is available in the 8-pin miniDIP and the 8-pin SO
package while the quad is in the 14-pin DIP and 14-pin SO.
The amplifiers are designed to operate on almost any
available supply voltage from 4V (±2V) to 30V (±15V).

Note 1: Absolute Maximum Ratings are those values beyond which the life
of a device may be impaired.
Note 2: A heat sink may be required depending on the power supply
voltage and how many amplifiers are shorted.
Note 3: The power tests done on ±15V supplies are done on only one
amplifier at a time to prevent excessive junction temperatures when testing
at maximum operating temperature.
Note 4: The supply current of the LT1229/LT1230 has a negative
temperature coefficient. For more information see the application
information section.
Note 5: Slew rate is measured at ±5V on a ±10V output signal while
operating on ±15V supplies with RF = 1k, RG = 110Ω and RL = 400Ω. The

slew rate is much higher when the input is overdriven and when the
amplifier is operated inverting, see the applications section.
Note 6: Rise time is measured from 10% to 90% on a ±500mV output
signal while operating on ±15V supplies with RF = 1k, RG = 110Ω and RL =
100Ω. This condition is not the fastest possible, however, it does
guarantee the internal capacitances are correct and it makes automatic
testing practical.
Note 7: AC parameters are 100% tested on the ceramic and plastic DIP
packaged parts (J and N suffix) and are sample tested on every lot of the
SO packaged parts (S suffix).
Note 8: NTSC composite video with an output level of 2VP.

APPLICATI
S I FOR ATIO
The LT1229/LT1230 are very fast dual and quad current
feedback amplifiers. Because they are current feedback
amplifiers, they maintain their wide bandwidth over a wide
range of voltage gains. These amplifiers are designed to
drive low impedance loads such as cables with excellent
linearity at high frequencies.
Feedback Resistor Selection
The small-signal bandwidth of the LT1229/LT1230 is set
by the external feedback resistors and the internal junction
capacitors. As a result, the bandwidth is a function of the
supply voltage, the value of the feedback resistor, the
closed-loop gain and load resistor. The characteristic
curves of Bandwidth versus Supply Voltage are done with
a heavy load (100Ω) and a light load (1k) to show the effect
of loading. These graphs also show the family of curves
that result from various values of the feedback resistor.
These curves use a solid line when the response has less
than 0.5dB of peaking and a dashed line when the response has 0.5dB to 5dB of peaking. The curves stop
where the response has more than 5dB of peaking.
limited by the gain bandwidth product of about 1GHz. The
curves show that the bandwidth at a closed-loop gain of
100 is 10MHz, only one tenth what it is at a gain of two.
Capacitance on the Inverting Input
Current feedback amplifiers want resistive feedback from
the output to the inverting input for stable operation. Take
care to minimize the stray capacitance between the output
and the inverting input. Capacitance on the inverting input
to ground will cause peaking in the frequency response
(and overshoot in the transient response), but it does not
degrade the stability of the amplifier. The amount of
capacitance that is necessary to cause peaking is a function of the closed-loop gain taken. The higher the gain, the
more capacitance is required to cause peaking. We can
add capacitance from the inverting input to ground to
increase the bandwidth in high gain applications. For
example, in this gain of 100 application, the bandwidth can
be increased from 10MHz to 17MHz by adding a 2200pF
capacitor.

At a gain of two, on ±15V supplies with a 750Ω feedback
resistor, the bandwidth into a light load is over 160MHz
without peaking, but into a heavy load the bandwidth
reduces to 100MHz. The loading has so much effect
because there is a mild resonance in the output stage that
enhances the bandwidth at light loads but has its Q
reduced by the heavy load. This enhancement is only
useful at low gain settings; at a gain of ten it does not boost
the bandwidth. At unity gain, the enhancement is so
effective the value of the feedback resistor has very little
effect. At very high closed-loop gains, the bandwidth is

Capacitive Loads
The LT1229/LT1230 can drive capacitive loads directly
when the proper value of feedback resistor is used. The
graph Maximum Capacitive Load vs Feedback Resistor
should be used to select the appropriate value. The value
shown is for 5dB peaking when driving a 1k load at a gain
of 2. This is a worst case condition; the amplifier is more
stable at higher gains and driving heavier loads. Alternatively, a small resistor (10Ω to 20Ω) can be put in series
with the output to isolate the capacitive load from the
amplifier output. This has the advantage that the amplifier
bandwidth is only reduced when the capacitive load is
present, and the disadvantage that the gain is a function of
the load resistance.
Power Supplies
The LT1229/LT1230 amplifiers will operate from single or
split supplies from ±2V (4V total) to ±15V (30V total). It is
not necessary to use equal value split supplies, however,
the offset voltage and inverting input bias current will
change. The offset voltage changes about 350µV per volt
of supply mismatch, the inverting bias current changes
about 2.5µA per volt of supply mismatch.
Power Dissipation
The LT1229/LT1230 amplifiers combine high speed and
large output current drive into very small packages. Because these amplifiers work over a very wide supply range,
it is possible to exceed the maximum junction temperature
under certain conditions. To ensure that the LT1229 and
LT1230 remain within their absolute maximum ratings,
we must calculate the worst case power dissipation,
define the maximum ambient temperature, select the
appropriate package and then calculate the maximum
junction temperature.
The worst case amplifier power dissipation is the total of
the quiescent current times the total power supply voltage
plus the power in the IC due to the load. The quiescent
supply current of the LT1229/LT1230 has a strong negative temperature coefficient. The supply current of each
amplifier at 150°C is less than 7mA and typically is only
4.5mA. The power in the IC due to the load is a function of
the output voltage, the supply voltage and load resistance.
The worst case occurs when the output voltage is at half
supply, if it can go that far, or its maximum value if it
cannot reach half supply.
For example, let’s calculate the worst case power dissipation in a video cable driver operating on ±12V supplies that
delivers a maximum of 2V into 150Ω.
Pd (MAX) = 2VS IS (MAX) +  VS – VO (MAX) 


(
VO (MAX)
RL
)
2V
150Ω
= 0.168 + 0.133 = 0.301W per Amp
Now if that is the dual LT1229, the total power in the
package is twice that, or 0.602W. We now must calculate how much the die temperature will rise above the
ambient. The total power dissipation times the thermal
resistance of the package gives the amount of temperature rise. For the above example, if we use the SO8
surface mount package, the thermal resistance is
150°C/W junction to ambient in still air.
Pd (MAX) = 2 • 12V • 7mA + 12V – 2V •
Temperature Rise = Pd (MAX) RθJA = 0.602W •
150°C/W = 90.3°C
The maximum junction temperature allowed in the plastic
package is 150°C. Therefore, the maximum ambient allowed is the maximum junction temperature less the
temperature rise.
Maximum Ambient = 150°C – 90.3°C = 59.7°C
Note that this is less than the maximum of 70°C that is
specified in the absolute maximum data listing. If we must
use this package at the maximum ambient we must lower
the supply voltage or reduce the output swing.
As a guideline to help in the selection of the LT1229/
LT1230 the following table describes the maximum supply voltage that can be used with each part in cable driving
applications.

Larger feedback resistors will reduce the slew rate as will
lower supply voltages, similar to the way the bandwidth is
reduced.
Large-Signal Response, AV = 10, RF = 1k, RG = 110Ω
Slew Rate
The slew rate of a current feedback amplifier is not
independent of the amplifier gain the way it is in a traditional op amp. This is because the input stage and the
output stage both have slew rate limitations. The input
stage of the LT1229/LT1230 amplifiers slew at about
100V/µs before they become nonlinear. Faster input signals will turn on the normally reverse-biased emitters on
the input transistors and enhance the slew rate significantly. This enhanced slew rate can be as much as
2500V/µs.
The output slew rate is set by the value of the feedback
resistors and the internal capacitance. At a gain of ten with
a 1k feedback resistor and ±15V supplies, the output slew
rate is typically 700V/µs and – 1000V/µs. There
is no input stage enhancement because of the high gain.

Settling Time
The characteristic curves show that the LT1229/LT1230
amplifiers settle to within 10mV of final value in 40ns to
55ns for any output step up to 10V. The curve of settling
to 1mV of final value shows that there is a slower thermal
contribution up to 20µs. The thermal settling component
comes from the output and the input stage. The output
contributes just under 1mV per volt of output change and
the input contributes 300µV per volt of input change.
Fortunately, the input thermal tends to cancel the output
thermal. For this reason the noninverting gain of two
configurations settles faster than the inverting gain of one.

Crosstalk and Cascaded Amplifiers
The amplifiers in the LT1229/LT1230 do not share any
common circuitry. The only thing the amplifiers share is
the supplies. As a result, the crosstalk between amplifiers
is very low. In a good breadboard or with a good PC board
layout the crosstalk from the output of one amplifier to the
input of another will be over 100dB down, up to 100kHz
and 65dB down at 10MHz. The following curve shows
the crosstalk from the output of one amplifier to the
input of another.

FREQUENCY (Hz)
LT1229 • TA12
The high frequency crosstalk between amplifiers is
caused by magnetic coupling between the internal wire
bonds that connect the IC chip to the package lead frame.
The amount of crosstalk is inversely proportional to the
load resistor the amplifier is driving, with no load (just
the feedback resistor) the crosstalk improves 18dB. The
curve shows the crosstalk of the LT1229 amplifier B
output (Pin 7) to the input of amplifier A. The crosstalk
from amplifier A’s output (Pin 1) to amplifier B is about
10dB better. The crosstalk between all of the LT1230
amplifiers is as shown. The LT1230 amplifiers that are
separated by the supplies are a few dB better.
When cascading amplifiers the crosstalk will limit the
amount of high frequency gain that is available because
the crosstalk signal is out of phase with the input signal.
This will often show up as unusual frequency response.
For example: cascading the two amplifiers in the LT1229,
each set up with 20dB of gain and a –3dB bandwidth of
65MHz into 100Ω will result in 40dB of gain, BUT the
response will start to drop at about 10MHz and then flatten
out from 20MHz to 30MHz at about 0.5dB down. This is
due to the crosstalk back to the input of the first amplifier.
For best results when cascading amplifiers use the LT1229
and drive amplifier B and follow it with amplifier A.

This circuit amplifies standard 1V peak composite video
input (1.4VP-P) by two and drives an AC coupled, doubly
terminated cable. In order for the output to swing
2.8VP-P on a single 5V supply, it must be biased accurately. The average DC level of the composite input is a
function of the luminance signal. This will cause problems
if we AC couple the input signal into the amplifier because
a rapid change in luminance will drive the output into the
rails. To prevent this we must establish the DC level at the
input and operate the amplifier with DC gain.
(the sync pulses). R4, R5 and R6 set the amplifier up with
a gain of two and bias the output so the bottom of the sync
pulses are at 1.1V. The maximum input then drives the
