  • Patent number: 5754072
    Abstract: A Clock and Bias Module (CBM 10) includes a low pass filter speed-up switch (U104, U114) to provide both a long time constant and fast settling; bootstrapped power supplies (VR101-104) to provide a wide, programmable output voltage range with overload protection; an integrating output driver (20) to provide controlled clock slew rates while maintaining a precision rail voltage; an active current steering bridge (Q5, Q6, CR1, CR2) to allow computer programmable control of slew rates; a current measurement circuit (U14, U15, U19) that enables sensing an average load current in the presence of large voltage swings; and a compact modular implementation that allows for close proximity of the circuitry to a unit under test. The CBM provides IR Detector FPA electrical stimulus in an automated testing environment. The clock generation circuitry is fully programmable for rail voltage, rising slew rate, and falling slew rate.
