THS4524 - Pin connection of unused opamp
Part Number: THS4524
Out of 4, 1 module of THS4524 is not being used in my schematics. Power Supply is common to all 4 modules. 3 modules are used in diff to diff mode. For the not used one, both inputs are shorted together and connected to ground. There is no feedback resistor for 4th module.
whether such scheme can create problem with the other 3 module of THS4524 ? Functionally board works fine but whether in the noisy environment, 4th module can create any damage or problem ?
I wouldn't do that. I would add four 1k feedback resistors.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Thanks for the reply. Whether absence of feedback resistor can cause any issue to other 3 module of THS4524 ?
In reply to Sunil Dwivedi98:
Kai is correct, you need to set up the unused channel with feedback R's and input R's to ground. The Vcm pin can be floated. The way you have it now would probably peg the outputs at full supply differential delta. Kind of an unknown operating point and while it might not impact the other 3 channels, it is not prudent.
This quad FDA is incidentally the only quad out there, you might consider the much improved upgrade (available as a dual) the THS4552. Much smaller packaging also. Or, if you only need 3 channels, a dual and a single THS4551.
