Abstract

A write driver circuit for a non-center-tapped thin film head includes control network 1 and a current steering network 2 connected between the data inputs and the write head 3. This circuit allows the use of low power supply potentials and low voltage breakdown integrated circuit technologies. High speed switching performance is obtained along with power dissipation.
