DC-100kHz Driver for NanoSpeed™ Variable Optic Attenuator

Enquire Now

(we make custom electronic circuits for all application scenarios)

This NS series of fast-speed driver is designed to control NS series of solid state variable optic attenuators (VOA). The push-pull output design is especially suitable for driving capacitive VOA loads, assuring the fast response time both on rising and falling of attenuation. The driver can be operated by 0-5V signal to control the attenuation of VOA.

The standard driver controls one individual VOA. Drivers controlling multiple VOAs are also available, please call Sales at (781) 935-1200 for more information.
