• THAT1646 OutSmarts® Balanced Line Driver, DIP

The THAT1646 is a new generation of monolithic differential line driver offering improved performance over conventional cross-coupled designs. Based on a high-performance fully differential op amp and laser-trimmed thin-film resistors, the THAT1646 exhibits low noise and distortion, high slew rate, and wide output swing. The THAT1646 is stable when driving difficult loads and has short-circuit protected outputs. The THAT1646 uses patented OutSmarts® technology. Outsmarts® is a dual feedback-loop design that prevents the excessive ground currents typical of cross-coupled output stages (CCOS) when clipping into single-ended loads.

The 1646 is pin-compatible with the TI DRV134 and DRV135, as well as the Analog Devices SSM2142.
