Zetex Intros 3 Families of FET Bias Controller ICs - ZNBG 3000, 4000 & 6000

February 21, 1999 by Jeff Shepard

Zetex Inc. (Commack, NY) introduced three families of FET bias controller ICs designed to provide all the bias requirements of GaAs and HEMT FETs in point-to-point microwave applications. The ZNBG 3000, 4000 and 6000 series handle up to 3, 4 or 6 FET stages, respectively.

The devices operate from a single positive supply and generate the negative 3V rail required for FET gate biasing. Available in 16-pin or 20-pin QSOP packages, the devices are priced from $1.65 to $2.85 each in quantities of 10,000.
