A new application note, Using the PE29102 Driver as a Differential Voltage Translator (AN70), has been released by Peregrine and describes how to configure the PE29102 high-speed FET driver as an adjustable level, high slew rate, differential voltage translator. The note also shows an example of this implementation.
Peregrine's PE29102 is a high-speed driver that can be configured to provide a high slew rate differential signal with adjustable output levels. In this configuration, the PE29102 can be used to provide the control signal requirement for Peregrine's PE42525 60 GHz switch. The PE29102 provides the required 3.0V control signal, with a high slew rate that matches the high switching speed of the PE42525 switch.
