Apex Introduces The MA17 - A 17 Channel, High Voltage Amplifier For Piezo Drives And Instrumentation

TUCSON, AZ -- Apex Microtechnology introduces the MA17, a 17-channel precision, high voltage op amp for driving capacitive loads. The recognized industry leader in high voltage and high current power amplifiers for applications in industrial controls, ATE, aerospace, medical, and military markets, Apex has extended that expertise to fulfil growing requirements for multiple channel high voltage applications.

The new Apex MA17 is an industry first, precision 17-channel, high voltage monolithic IC that is housed in a 100-pin Quad Flat Pack (QFP). With quiescent current under 100uA per channel and a foot print measuring less than 1.86 square inches, the MA17 drastically reduces the power and board space requirements in systems utilizing multiple high voltage drive channels such as 3D MEMS mirror arrays, industrial ink jet printers, automatic test equipment, and adaptive optics.

The MA17 has the unique feature of each channel possessing it's own internal biasing to minimize cross talk between channels. Gain is user selectable providing flexibility for the system designer. The MA17 features a high voltage operation of 240V, and each channel's output voltage can swing up to ± 100V with a dual supply and up to 200V with a single supply. Each channel is capable to source/sink up to 1.2mA.
