  • Blog Post: Driving ADCs: Amplifier or balun?

    Baluns are often used to convert a single-ended signal to differential, without adding noise and while maintaining good distortion. A common example of that is in the driver circuit for a high-speed, differential-input analog-to-digital converter (ADC).  Have you ever considered using a differential amplifier to replace...
