M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech) announced a new High Voltage CMOS Driver for PIN diodes for use in military and commercial radio applications. The MADR-010574 is designed to work with M/A-COM Tech's high power and high voltage PIN diodes. This driver supports series-shunt and all-series diode designs by biasing four diodes simultaneously. The back bias voltage is configurable from 20 V to 250 V, while the forward biasing current is configurable up to 200 mA. High voltage level shifters are integrated so that it can be easily controlled by 3 V or 5 V CMOS logic.
While consuming low quiescent current, the MADR-010574 has a typical delay of less than 8 µs. If needed, the switching speed can be further improved by consuming more quiescent power. The driver is packaged in a lead free 7 mm 16-Lead QFN package and is available in tape and reel packaging for high volume applications.
