Original Press Release:

New High Voltage MOSFET Power Operational Amplifier Breaks Barriers In Performance Limits

Apex Microtechnology, a recognized industry leader in high voltage and high current power operational amplifiers, once again expands their expertise of the power amplifier market with the release of the PA17.

The PA17 is a high voltage MOSFET power operational amplifier that breaks barriers for performance limits in slew rate (50V/microsecond), and power bandwidth while maintaining high current (50A Continuous, 100A, Pulse) and power dissipation ratings. In addition, the PA17 has a four-wire current limit technique that allows current limiting without the need to consider internal or external milliohm parasitic resistance in the output line.

With additional features such as external shut down control and optional boost voltage inputs makes the PA17 ideal for any design requiring a highly flexible amplifier.
