Apex Microtechnology ~ High Density, High Voltage Power Amplifier ICs
High Density, High Voltage Power Amplifier ICs, 220 Volts, 10 Amps PEAK
The PA164, PA165 are new, high density power amplifier ICs scheduled for release in mid-2017.
Featuring a very small footprint, these ICs provide 1A (PA164) and 4A (PA165) output current continuously, and up to 10A PEAK (PA165). These devices utilize a monolithic MOS technology amplifier core for supply voltage operation up to 220V. Protection is provided by a temperature compensated, user settable current limit, along with an additional over-current flag.
The flexible implementation of the protection for this IC also includes an output disable function to add another layer of protection. Depending on the circuit design for the end application, the selection of optimum gain and bandwidth can be user defined using external components.
