ZMD introduced the ZIOL2201 line driver and level shifter IC. The ZMD ZIOL2201 features high-voltage I/O channel, integrated DC/DC converter, IO-Link communication standard support, operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C, and 4mm x 4mm QFN24 package. The output driver is a push pull stage that reaches an RDSon of less than 6.6 Ohms. The IC is ideal for sensors and actuators used in the harsh environment of automation applications. Samples of the ZIOL2201 are available now. Prices start at EUR 2.62 (volumes of 1000 devices).
ZMD introduced the ZIOL2211 line driver and level shifter IC. The ZIOL2211 features a high-voltage I/O channel that meets the physical layer requirements of sensor and actuator systems used in factory automation applications. The operating temperature is -40°C to +85°C. The high-voltage line driver comes in a space-saving 4mm x 4mm QFN24 package. An exposed die paddle ensures optimum heat distribution. Unit prices start at EUR 2.11 and USD 2.85, in volumes of 1000 devices. The ZIOL2211 is scheduled for volume production in Q1 2011. Samples will be available in January 2011. The ZMDI ZIOL2211 is ideal for all kinds of sensors and actuators used in the harsh environment of factory automation applications.
Microchip Technology introduced the MCP6H01 and MCP6H02 (MCP6H01/2) operational amplifiers (op amps). The op amps feature 1.2 MHz gain-bandwidth, 3.5V to 16V supply voltage, 135 microamperes quiescent current (typical), 3.5 mV offset voltage (max), 100 dB (typical) Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR), and 102 dB (typical) Power-Supply Rejection Ratio (PSRR). The MCP6H01 is priced at $0.47 each (10k-Unit) and the MCP6H02 is priced at $0.66 each (10k-Unit). The MCP6H01/2 is ideal for medical (portable instrumentation, heart- and blood-pressure monitors), automotive (proximity, temperature or flow sensors), and industrial (high-side current sensing in power supplies) applications.
Analog Devices announced the ADG5412 and ADG5413 switches that can prevent latch-up in high-voltage industrial applications operating up to ±20 V. The ADG5412 and ADG5413 are ideal for instrumentation, automotive, and other harsh environments that are prone to latch-up, which is an undesirable high-current state that can lead to device failure and persist until the power supply is turned off. The high voltage switches feature a 8-kV HBM (human body model) ESD (electrostatic discharge) rating. This helps shield equipment from excess current and eliminates the need for designers to install additional protection circuitry. The ADG5412 and ADG5413 switches are available now for $2.18 (price each per 1,000).
