M/A-COM Technology Solutions introduced 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 device boasts high voltage CMOS technology, lower power dissipation and positive voltage control; making it an excellent solution for customers. Packaged in a low cost SOIC-8 package, the MADR-009269  is ideal for customers looking for a low-price driver with convenient implementation.

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

Samples of MADR-009269 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the M/A-COM website at: www.macomtech.com.
