Supertex introduced the HV610, a 32-channel, serial-to-parallel converter with high voltage, push-pull outputs. The IC is suited for driving high-speed printers and LCD displays. Its outputs can be individually controlled, set to high or low, or set to a high-Z state, providing useful versatility in applications requiring fast shift register and data shifting speeds. The IC features four data shift registers, directional data loading control, operating output of +50/-40V, and CMOS/TTL compatible inputs. It is available in a 64-lead TQFP (HV610FG-G) package. The part is “Green” and RoHS-compliant. Pricing for the HV610 is $10.80 for the HV610FG-G in 1K quantities.
