The AD8370 is a low cost, digitally controlled, variable gain amplifier (VGA) that provides precision gain control, high IP3, and low noise figure. The excellent distortion performance and wide bandwidth make the AD8370 a suitable gain control device for modern receiver designs. For wide input, dynamic range applications, the AD8370 provides two input ranges: high gain mode and low gain mode. A vernier, 7-bit, transconductance (gm) stage provides 28 dB of gain range at better than 2 dB resolution and 22 dB of gain range at better than 1 dB resolution. A second gain range, 17 dB higher than the first, can be selected to provide improved noise performance.
