In part 2 of fully differential amplifier training video, the following are said
“Look closely at equation 3, and you will notice that each half of the FDA acts as a single-ended op-amp in an inverting configuration.”
It means that we can split equation 3 to: Vout-=-(Vid+)*(Rf/Rg). Vout+-=-(Vid-)*(Rf/Rg). And then in the video it's said that Vin_cm=0.
But how can split the equation like that? It's not resonable
What about splitting the equation in this way seems unreasonable? Keep in mind that this makes no mention of the function of the Vocm pin, which is going to shift each amplifier's output accordingly to satisfy the commanded common-mode voltage. If we look at a simple example though where the input common-mode matches the output common-mode and there is no shift, then you can see that each side really does behave like an inverting amplifier.
