M/A-COM Technology Solutions Introduces New 6-Bit Serial/Parallel Module Driver

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.

The MADR-010410 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.

The MADR-010410 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.”
