MEMS & Piezoelectric Drive Applications
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
Signal routing can vary from simple pass-through to serial-parallel
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.
