The NS switch driver provides a convenient way to use the NS series electro-optical switches, which act as a pure capacitive load. Each driver is tuned to a specific device mounted on the PCB. To operate, the customer only needs to plug in the accompanying DC power supply and input a control signal through the golden SMA connector. The switch will be activated as the input voltage exceeds 3V with less than 1µA draw, compatible with 3.3V CMOS/TTL. We produce boards to control multiple NS switches with individual SMA connectors. No computer-based control software is available for such a high-speed operation.
The dual-stage configuration increases the extinction ratio or cross-talk value.
The standard driver controls one individual switch. We produce boards to control multiple switches with individual SMA connectors. Drivers that control multiple switches also are available, please call Sales at (781) 935-1200.
