This device is a monolithic two-stage video amplifier with differential inputs and differential outputs. It features internal series-shunt feedback that provides wide bandwidth, low phase distortion, and excellent gain stability. Emitter-follower outputs enable the device to drive capacitive loads. All stages are current-source biased to obtain high common-mode and supply-voltage rejection ratios.
The differential gain is typically 400 when the gain adjust pins are connected together, or amplification may be adjusted for near 0 to 400 by the use of a single external resistor connected between the gain adjustment pins A and B. No external frequency-compensating components are required for any gain option.
The device is particularly useful in magnetic-tape or disk-file systems using phase or NRZ encoding and in high-speed thin-film or plated-wire memories. Other applications include general-purpose video and pulse amplifiers.
The device achieves low equivalent noise voltage through special processing and a new circuit layout incorporating input transistors with low base resistance.
The TL592B is characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C.
