Fuzzy-logic, noise-free, f-SPDT Solid-State Drivers
A unique feature of an f-SPDT driver is a fuzzy- logic control and power source for the internal logic and drivers. The control input designed for the maximum application flexibility and simplicity in interfacing. It is a high impedance input and any 5V CMOS logic can be used to control it. The best result can be obtained with tri-state output logic, like bus-driver IC chips or CPUs. The control input has three defined levels, as that can be seen on the figure, below: 0-1.7V, 1.9-3.2V, and 3.4-5V. That voltage variation allows targeting control any one of terminals or turn “OFF” the driver (terminals) all together... Read More
