High-Voltage Analog and Digital Output Interfaces

  • Hussein Ballan

The second part of this book describes the design of high-voltage integrated circuits. One of the most common solutions for high-voltage applications using the SVX devices, involves complex low-voltage signal processing communicating with an external high-voltage environment. This communication is usually performed by high-voltage digital or analog output interfaces. These are discussed in this chapter, where circuit design techniques overcoming the voltage limitations of the devices are presented as well.
