Abstract

A FET (field-effect transistor) true driver is proposed, the output voltage of which stays at the VH-level for a short controllable time and subsequently decays to zero at a controlled rate. As the rising edge of the input pulse generates the rising edge of the output pulse, the decay of the latter is initiated by a second pulse at a rate controlled by the impedance of a FET.
