 Author: varun Type: Update Category: Electronics Subject: Antialiasing Filter Update

I am trying to design an antialiasing filter, which also has two switchable whitening stages. I have designed a first version of a PCB for this.

The board takes differential input through PCB mountable BNCs. It consists of an instrumentaiton amplifier made using quad opamp ADA4004, followed by two whitening blocks, also made using ADA4004, which can be bypassed if needed, depending upon a control input. The mux used for this purpose is Maxim MAX4158EUA. These two whitening blocks are followed by 2 the LPF stages. A third LPF stage could be added if needed. These use AD829 opamps. After the LPFs are two amplifiers for giving a differential output through two output BNCs. The schematic is shown in attachment 1: "AA.pdf". The top layers of the layout are shown in attachment 2 (AAtop.pdf), the bottom layers in attachment 3 (AAbottom.pdf), and the entire layout in attachment 4 (AAbrd.pdf).

The board has 6 layers (in the order from top to bottom):

1) Top signal layer;

2) Internal plane 1 (GND),

3) Internal plane 2 (+15V),

4) Internal plane 3 (-15V),

5) Internal plane 4 (GND),

6) Bottom signal layer.

Power: +15, -15 and GND is given through a 4 pin header connector.

The dimensions of the board are 1550 mil $\times$ 6115 mil (38.1mm$\times$155.3mm) and the overall dimensions including the protruding BNC edges are 1550 mil $\times$ 7675 mil (38.1mm$\times$194.9mm)

I would like to have inputs on the layout telling me if any component/trace needs to be changed/better placed, any other things about the board need to be changed, etc.

P.S.: I have also added a zipped folder "AA.zip" containing the schematic and board files, as well as the above pdfs.
