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.”

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
