Press Release Summary:
Designed for use with Model 9070 MEMS Engine Driver System, Model 2375 features 4 channels, each rated for 20 mA continuous current with 0.2 ohm output impedance and independent voltage monitor output for use in closed loop system. Amplifier can drive capacitive loads up to 200 pF while maintaining full power bandwidth, exceeding 5 kHz. Product is suited for MEMS comb drives, cantilevered beams, and other electrostatic actuators.
Original Press Release:
A Four-Channel, High-Voltage Amplifier for MEMS Actuators
GENEVA, OH 3/4/05 - TEGAM, Inc. announces the release of the Model 2375, a four-channel amplifier that offers the ultimate in precision amplification for MEMS comb drives, cantilevered beams, and other electrostatic actuators. It is also ideal for use in applications requiring precise amplification of unipolar or DC biased AC waveforms.
Each of the 2375's four channels is rated for 20 mA continuous current with 0.2 O output impedance. The amplifier can drive capacitive loads up to 200 pF while maintaining a full power bandwidth, exceeding 5 kHz. Each channel has an independent voltage monitor output for use in a closed loop system. The buffers produce a reduction of 100:1 of the output voltage for measurement devices with a 1 MO or higher output impedance.
The 2375 was designed specifically for use with the TEGAM Model 9070 MEMS Engine Driver System, which was co-developed with Sandia National Laboratories. U.S. pricing for the 2375 starts at $6,495.
"This is another step in the aggressive expansion of TEGAM's line of single and multiple channel waveform amplifiers," notes Terry Gambill, president of TEGAM, Inc.
