The MPD2T28125‐700 Surface Mount PIN Diode Driver is designed to provide high voltage and high current bias signals to high power PIN diode single pole double throw (SPDT or SP2T) switches. This PIN diode driver is intended to operate with Aeroflex/Metelics MSW2000, MSW2010, MSW2030, MSW2040 and MSW2050 series of surface mount, high power SP2T transmit‐receive and symmetrical switches, as well as with switch designs employing discrete PIN diodes. The driver operates with positive supply voltages only.
This driver can supply voltages from 10 V to 125 V for reverse biasing switching PIN diodes to enable PIN diode switches, such as those described above, to handle up to 100 W CW RF signals. The MPD2T28125‐700 driver can source current up to 200 mA to enable PIN diode switches to produce low insertion loss and high isolation. The driver can be controlled via one or two TTL‐compatible control ports. Two complementary outputs are available which can drive the four bias ports which are required for a typical SP2T PIN diode switch which employs the series‐shunt topology, or for asymmetrical switch designs. Switching time is approximately 1 μs.
The PIN driver is available in a 1.3 (W) x 1.3 (L) x 0.33 (H) inches (33 x 33 x 8.4 mm) surface mount package. The device is available in tube and tape‐reel packaging for high volume pick and place automated assembly. It is RoHS compliant.
The MPD2T28125‐700 Switch Driver is designed to provide high voltage and high current bias to high power PIN diode SP2T switches. This driver is compatible with high volume, surface mount, solder reflow manufacturing. The product is durable, reliable, and capable of operating reliably in military, commercial and industrial environments.
