Notch Filter Reduces Amplifier Peaking and Increases Gain Flatness

Although the ADA4817 is unity-gain stable, a high-frequency pole increases its GWP from 410 MHz at high gains to 1 GHz at unity gain, while decreasing its phase margin. Adding a discrete RLC notch filter maintains the high bandwidth and input impedance, while dramatically reducing peaking, increasing gain flatness, and reducing overshoot.
