Trek’s New High Voltage Amplifier Offers Unique Combination of Capabilities

Model PZD350A Offers Wide Bandwidth and Addresses Need for High Speed and Precise Control of Output Voltages; Important in Piezoelectrics, Electro-optics, MEMS

20 May 2009 (Medina, NY) – TREK, INC., a designer and manufacturer of high-voltage power amplifiers and high-performance electrostatic instrumentation, has introduced a new High Voltage Power Amplifier - Trek Model PZD350A - which offers wide bandwidth and additional features important in piezoelectrics, electro-optics, MEMS and other applications.

The wide bandwidth of Model PZD350A, for both large signal and small signal levels, in combination with Trek’s industry-leading technology for precise control of output voltages, enable the PZD350A HV amplifier to address the specific need for high speed and fast settling when driving capacitive loads in piezoelectric driving/control, electro-optics, MEMS and other demanding applications such as laser modulation and ion beam control.

The Model PZD350A M/S has twice the current capability of the PZD350A with fast slew rates and wide bandwidths.( To Model PZD350A M/S page.... )
