Maxim MAX4002x high-speed comparators now at Mouser
Published: 9 August 2019 - Christian Lynn
Mouser Electronics is now stocking MAX4002x comparators from Maxim Integrated. The MAX40025 and MAX40026 single-supply, high-speed comparators deliver fast propagation delay for distance sensing, time-of-flight (ToF), and high-speed test and measurement instruments.
The Maxim MAX4002x devices, available from Mouser Electronics, are single-supply, high-speed comparators with a typical propagation delay of 280ps and a low overdrive dispersion of 25ps (typical). The devices are compatible with the outputs of several widely used high-speed transimpedance amplifiers, such as the MAX40658, due to their input common-mode range of 1.5 V to VDD+0.1 V. Both the MAX40025 and MAX40026 run from a supply voltage of 2.7V to 3.6V.
The MAX4002x devices can also flexibly interface with many modern FPGAs and CPUs, since the devices’ output stage is specified for LVDS. This capability enables the comparators to help minimise power dissipation (which aids in system optimisation), and complementary outputs help in the suppression of common-mode noise on each output line. Compared to single-ended outputs, the devices’ fully differential LVDS outputs deliver the high-speed digital signalling and reduced EMI necessary for a variety of low-noise, high-performance designs.
Maxim’s MAX4002x comparators are available in a space-saving, compact, 1.218mm × 0.818mm WLP package (MAX40025), or an AEC-Q100 automotive qualified 2mm × 2mm TDFN package (MAX40026). For development, Mouser is also stocking the MAX40025EVKIT evaluation kit with layout options that allow engineers to easily modify the input termination.
The MAX4002x comparators are ideal for a broad range of applications, including LIDAR, radar, and sonar; ToF sensors; high-speed differential line receivers; high-speed triggering in oscilloscopes; and communications equipment.
