iCMOS Technology Enabling the +/-10V World

Analog Devices' industrial CMOS (iCMOS™)
iCMOS Industrialmanufacturing process technology combines high voltage silicon with submicron CMOS and complementary bipolar technologies. It has enabled the development of a large portfolio of ±15V switches and multiplexers that are used in a wide range of applications. With the development of the iCMOS™ process, Analog Devices has been able to deliver on its commitment for continuous product and process development and released a large number of switches and multiplexers that offer industry leading performance in very small form factors enabling board area space savings for industrial systems.

"It is common to see new switch parts on the market in which there is a trade off in optimizing resistance, capacitance, charge injection, or input leakage specifications over one another," said Kurt Mandeville, chief hardware engineer, National Instruments. "With its new iCMOS™ switches, Analog Devices has managed to simultaneously improve on all four key specifications, trending ever closer to the ideal switch."
