M/A-COM Technology Solutions Introduces New
6-Bit Serial/Parallel Module Driver
May 31, 2012 Press Release
-- Module Driver Features Low Power Dissipation and CMOS/LVCMOS Control Logic
Lowell, MA, May
31, 2012 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog
semiconductor solutions, announced today a new Transmit/Receive module Driver IC which provides 6-Bit
serial/parallel logic control and T/R switch control for multifunction T/R modules.
is an efficient CMOS driver and ideal for logic control of GaAs based T/R modules as well as a 6-Bit S/P driver
for attenuators or phase shifters. High speed analog CMOS technology is utilized to achieve low power consumption
at moderate to high speeds.
boasts low power dissipation and translates CMOS/LVCMOS input controls to negative gate control voltages for GaAs
FETs. Packaged in a 5mm 40-Lead PQFN, the CMOS driver allows a high output voltage of -0.1V and a low output
voltage of 0.1V. The quiescent supply current stands at 0.1µA.
“Our CMOS driver solution works well with
highly integrated multi-function T/R modules,” said Kevin Harrington, A&D Product Marketing Manager. “It offers
multiple control functions for phase shifters, digital attenuators, switches, and amplifiers.”
