M/A-COM Unveils HV CMOS Driver For PIN Diodes

M/A-COM Technology Solutions has introduced a high voltage CMOS driver for PIN diodes for use in military and commercial radio applications
MA/COM Tech's MADR-010574 is designed to work with nhe firm'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.

"The MADR-010574 will set an industry standard in terms of versatility, functionality and size" says Scott Vasquez, Product Manager. "This device outperforms the competition and saves inches of board space on space challenged applications such as military and commercial radios. In addition, the applications for this driver are numerous and can be used in any environment that requires high voltage and current bias for PIN diodes."

Production quantities and samples of MADR-010574 are available from stock.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
