M/A-COM has recently unveiled a new single channel CMOS Driver for microwave switching applications. The MADR-009269 is a high performance single channel CMOS Driver that is used to translate TTL control inputs into complementary gate control voltages for GaAs FET microwave switches and attenuators.

The company's latest offering boasts a high voltage CMOS technology, lower power dissipation and positive voltage control. Packaged in a low cost SOIC-8 package, the device is ideal for customers looking for a low price driver with convenient implementation.

The output HIGH level ranges from 0 to +2.0V to optimise the intermodulation products of FET control devices. For driving PIN Diode Circuits, the outputs are nominally switched between +5V and -5V. The MADR-009269 utilises high speed analogue CMOS technology to achieve lower power dissipation at moderate to high speeds; allowing customers to efficiently cover most microwave switching applications.
