The AD8123 is a triple, high speed, differential receiver and equalizer that compensates for the transmission losses of UTP and coaxial cables up to 300 meters in length. Various gain stages are summed together to best approximate the inverse frequency response of the cable. Logic circuitry inside the AD8123 controls the gain functions of the individual stages so that the lowest noise can be achieved at short-to-medium cable lengths. This technique optimizes its performance for low noise, shortto-medium range applications, while at the same time provides the high gain bandwidth required for long cable equalization (up to 300 meters). Each channel features a high impedance differential input that is ideal for interfacing directly with the cable. The AD8123 has three control pins for optimal cable compensation, as well as an output offset adjust pin. Two voltage-controlled pins are used to compensate for different cable lengths; the VPEAK pin controls the amount of high frequency peaking and the VGAIN pin adjusts the broadband flat gain, which compensates for the low frequency flat cable loss.
