The EL5173 and EL5373 are single and triple high bandwidth amplifiers with a fixed gain of 2. They are primarily targeted for applications such as driving twisted-pair lines in component video applications. The inputs can be in either single-ended or differential form but the outputs are always in differential form. The output common mode level for each channel is set by the associated REF pin, which has a -3dB bandwidth of over 190MHz. Generally, these pins are grounded but can be tied to any voltage reference. All outputs are short circuit protected to withstand temporary overload condition. The EL5173 and EL5373 are specified for operation over the full -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
