Key features of the SP8064 include an eight gain settings plus power down mode, 120MHz RF and fast channel bandwidth, 6ns settling time, -77dBm output noise, 2V minimum output dynamic range, 0.5ns maximum group delay, and 10mV maximum fast channel offset.

Housed in a 16-pin clear mold flatpack (CFP) package, the SP8064 is priced at $1.05 in 100,000-piece quantities. An evaluation board is also available to assist in the evaluation of the IC. Additional information can be found online.
