THS3001: THS3001 burns up

Part Number: THS3001


I built a circuit based on a typical circuit, but the chip would burn as soon as it was powered on, which made me confused.

This is the schematic of THS3001.

  • Your eventual solution is to use a different part. But, for now, you might try powering up with lower supplies to see if you can turn it on without damage and then see if it is oscillating. 

  • Hi Gang,

    unless you made a wiring mistake, burning damage can be the result of unwanted oscillation due to instability. The best measure to achieve stability is the use of a ground plane as recommended in the THS3001's evaluation module:

    I guess your layout doesn't look like this?
