GaAs MMIC Switch Drivers

These drivers are high speed devices designed specifically for driving GaAs FET MMIC switch IC’s. Each driver channel has one TTL compatible input and a pair of outputs which are complementary.

These drivers will operate with a negative supply of -5 volts to -15 volts. The outputs swing from zero volts to a negative voltage which can be set by an external resistor, or to the negative supply if so desired. This allows the designer to select an optimum gate bias voltage regardless of supply voltage level.

These drivers contain internal .01 uF bypass capacitors, and they are reverse bias and ESD protected. They draw very little quiescent supply current, so that the performance of GaAs MMICs is in no way compromised.

Standard and customized versions are available. Contact factory for details.
