PRESS RELEASE: Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor Announces Sample & Hold Precision Linear Amplifier IC for High Density MEMS/MOEMS Systems

WATERLOO, Ontario - April 5, 2012 - Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor, a Teledyne Technologies company, announced today the availability of its DH9665A Sample & Hold Precision Linear Amplifier Integrated Circuit. Using proprietary High Voltage CMOS/DMOS technology, the DH9665A is designed for next-generation, high density, small footprint, low power system requirements using MEMS or MOEMS activation with electrostatic forces. This device showcases Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor's suite of product development and manufacturing capabilities for MEMS/CCD/HV-CMOS solutions.

"Sophisticated High Voltage design permits us to offer unbelievably low power consumption where a large number of channels is critical," said Remi Meingan, Senior Product Manager at Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor. "The DH9665A achieves impressive precision with the smallest footprint area per channel in the industry."

The DH9665A extends Teledyne DALSA's industry leading MEMS and MOEMS capability and provides a cost-effective solution for high density systems. It offers voltage precision of ±20mV with a wide linear output range up to 240V on 96 independently operated sample & hold amplifiers. The RoHS compliant DH9665A is available immediately in either a 17x17mm BGA Package or as bumped die with a footprint of 0.8mm2 per channel.

Key Features

  • 96 independent High Voltage Sample/Hold Amplifiers
  • High Precision Voltage of ±20mV with Wide Linear Output Range up to 240V
  • 4 Analog HV Outputs programmable simultaneously
  • 24 selectable groups of 4 HV Outputs (Quads)
  • Internal closed loop gain of 79V/V
  • Very Low Power Consumption below 500mW
  • Small footprint: 3.0mm2/ch for BGA, 0.8mm2/ch for Die
  • Integrated Diode for temperature monitoring
  • Single polarity Low Voltage power supplies
  • 3 times more channels than the Supertex HV257 while maintaining similar size
  • Lower power consumption compared to the Supertex HV257
  • Simplified power up/down configuration compared to the Supertex HV257

Product Details and Availability

The DH9665A samples are available as of April 2012. To learn more, visit the product page or attend Photonix 2012 (April 11-13, 2012 at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan in booth E30-24 in the Optics & Sensing Technology section) where details will be presented regarding the DH9665A sample & hold precision linear amplifier IC for next-generation, high density, low power optical system requirements using MOEMS.
