PMU mode operation for the MAX9979 pin-electronics IC
The MAX9979 is a highly integrated, dual-channel, pin-electronics (PE) IC for the ATE market. This design includes a dual, four-level, high-speed, driver/comparator/load (DCL) design with integrated clamps that can be placed into drive, high-impedance and low-leakage modes. The operating speed exceeds 1Gbit/s. The design includes the full integration of all levels through individual 16bit internal DACs. Each channel also includes a fully integrated, parametric measurement unit (PMU), which has very accurate measurement capabilities and is a valuable addition to the design.
This application note describes the operation of four of the most popular operating modes (FVMI, FVMV, FIMI, and FIMV) for the MAX9979's PMU by referencing the equivalent schematic for each mode.
