The ISL1539A provides 4 internal wideband op amps intended to be used as two pairs of differential line drivers. The ISL1539As high bandwidth, 240MHz, and ultra low distortion, -89dBc @ 1MHz, 2VP-P, support the demanding MTPR requirements of emerging VDSL2 line driver designs. Less demanding requirements can be met at very low quiescent powers using the supply current adjustment features. Each of the 4 internal op amps is a wideband current feedback amplifier offering very high slew rate intrinsic to that design using low quiescent current levels. Each of the two pair of amplifiers (ports) can also be power optimized to the application using two external quiescent control logic pins. Full power is nominally 27. 2mA/port with options of medium power cutback to 23mA/port, a low power condition at 13. 5mA/port, and an off state at ADJ pin. Grounding the pin gives the nominal currents listed above while inserting a resistor from this pin to ground can be used to scale each of the settings downward. High power push/pull line driver applications as illustrated in the example below are best supported using a low headroom, high output current device. On ±12V supplies, the ISL1539A offers a 1. 1V headroom with >360mA peak output current. Driving differentially this gives >41. 8VP-P swing to as low as 58Ω differential load. High SFDR operation is also supported for supplies as low as ±7. 5V. Intended to be used as differential pairs, this two port device includes special circuitry to minimize common mode loop peaking while also reducing the common mode output noise spectrum. That circuitry links the two sides of each port, precluding their application as individual amplifiers.
