The PA166 is the latest addition to Apex Microtechnology’s family of high density, multi-purpose power amplifier ICs utilizing leading-edge package design. Designed with power density in mind, the PA166 comes equipped with a pair of high voltage operational amplifiers with monolithic cores. In a surface mount package and with a body of just 20mm x 20mm, each channel is designed for operation up to 205V while providing 1A of continuous current. PA166 features exceptional channel separation of 80dB, while optional separate supplies for the amplifier core and output stage allow for optimized voltage swing with an overall power dissipation of 2 x 26W. The PA166 comes equipped with several safety features for system protection, including temperature compensated current limit, an over-current flag, and an output disable function.
