96-channel controller drives inkjet printers, matrix displays

Sunnyvale, Calif.&#8212The HV582 from Supertex is a low-voltage to high-voltage controller with 96 push-pull outputs, each capable of delivering a source and sink current of 75 mA at 90 volts for driving inkjet printer heads and flat panel displays for high definition TVs.

“The HV582 leverages Supertex’s proprietary HVCMOS technology to meet the demand for an integrated and versatile solution for printer and display applications,” states Ahmed Masood, vice president of marketing. “This IC’s output current capability allows very fast switching of high voltage waveforms driving large capacitive loads.” The chip's outputs can be individually controlled, set to high or low, or set to a high-impedance state.

Click here for the device datasheet. The HV582, available in a 160-pin LQFP package and “Green” and RoHS-compliant, is priced at $17.80 each in 1k quantities. Samples are available from stock. Lead-time for production quantities is 4-6 weeks ARO.
