Quad, Ultra-Low-Power, 200Mbps ATE Drivers/Comparators

Low-Cost, Low-Power ATE Pin Electronics for Memory, Burn-In, and Structural Automated Test Equipment

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX19005 four-channel, ultra-low-power, pin-electronics IC includes a two-level pin driver, a window comparator, a passive load, and force-and-sense Kelvin-switched parametric measurement unit (PMU) connections for each channel. The driver features a -1V to +5.2V voltage range, includes high-impedance modes, and is highly linear even at low voltage swings. The window comparator features 240MHz equivalent input bandwidth and programmable output voltage levels. The passive load provides pullup and pulldown voltages to the device-under-test (DUT).

Low leakage and high impedance are operational configurations that are programmed through a 3-wire, low-voltage, CMOS-compatible serial interface. High-speed PMU switching is realized through dedicated digital control inputs.

This device is available in an 80-pin, 12mm x 12mm body, 0.5mm pitch TQFP with an exposed 6mm × 6mm die pad on the bottom of the package for efficient heat removal. The device is specified to operate over the 0°C to +70°C commercial temperature range and features a die temperature monitor output.
