High-Voltage Solutions - MEMS, Piezo & Interface

High Voltage solutions combine features that provide for biasing, signal routing, level translation, and amplification while connecting low voltage control circuits to other high voltage circuits.  Control functions and circuits can vary from simple to complex, from analog to digital circuitry, from FPGAs to microcontrollers.

Different digital interfaces include simple digital inputs, to complex protocols such as SPI, I2C, with data rates to 10s of MHz. These solutions enable drive, monitoring and control of different loads for a broad range of markets and applications.

Signal routing can vary from simple pass-through to serial-parallel conversion, and can accommodate anything from one to more than a hundred signals.  Voltages supported cover from typically tens of volts to hundreds, with currents typically varying from under 1mA to hundreds of mA.

Functional integration includes features providing for measurement and protection (current, voltage, temperature, other), boost voltage generation, complex control features (s.a. signal linearization, offset management, etc.) and more.  Drive circuitry can encompass anything as simple as a single discrete device, to FET switch arrays, Darlington switch arrays, to amplifier arrays.
