Thread: Low Noise, High Gain Amplifier

Hi Fred,

Either way can work if done properly. I've gone back and forth on this
philosophy. It is much like shielding. Many people think that they can
just "throw" a technique at a project and fix their problems. Just
putting a messily-radiating device inside of a shielded box rarely
fixes the problem, yet there are cases where shielding is an
indispensable part of the RFI solution. Similarly, just putting analog
and digital grounds on two separate planes without thinking through
the implications of that is likely to cause more problems than it

My overall guess would be that it would be better to use a single
ground plane. If you use a differential input as I suggested, that
should help to prevent picking up differences in ground potential as
