The MPD2T5N200-702 Series of Surface Mount PIN Diode Drivers is designed to provide higher voltage and higher current operation for higher power PIN Diode Switches. In particular, these PIN Diode Drivers are intended to operate with Aeroflex/Metelics MSW2060 Series of Surface Mount, Higher Power SP2T Symmetrical Series-Shunt Switches as well other All Series and Series-Shunt Configurations.
These PIN Diode Drivers operate from +5 V and -15 V to -200 V DC power supplies to successfully operate the SP2T PIN Diode Switches from 20 – 6,000 MHz for 100 W C.W. or peak power levels. In addition, the Driver can supply current of -50 mA from the -200V supply to provide lower insertion loss and better high signal linearity to the Series PIN Diode. Single TTL control is available in the design. The Driver provides (2) complementary outputs that drive the (2) bias ports in the SP2T PIN diode Switch. Propagation Delay (50 % TTL-10% RF Voltage) is on the order of 1 μS and can be improved with external RC, current spiking network.
The PIN Diode Driver is designed in a 1.3 “ square x 0.33 “ H (33 mm sq x 8.4 mm H) surface mount package. The devices are available in tube and tape-reel packaging for high volume pick and place automated assembly and are fully RoHS compliant.
