WinSystems launched the PXM-UIO96-2, which is a SUMIT-ISM compatible digital I/O module. The device is designed for high-speed interfacing, and features 96 lines. The PXM-UIO96-2 can monitor all 96 lines for both rising and falling digital edge transitions, latch them, and then interrupt the host processor notifying it that a change-of-input status has occurred. The WinSystems PXM-UIO96-2 is available now for $195 each (in OEM quantities).
Lattice Semiconductor introduced the ispPAC-POWR1014-2 and ispPAC-POWR1014A-2. The new devices are the latest members of Power Manager II product family. The ispPAC-POWR1014-2 and ispPAC-POWR1014A-2 devices integrate higher voltage charge pumps with programmable current to control MOSFETs in Hot Swap and Sequencing applications. High volume (250KU+) pricing for the ispPAC-POWR1014-2 devices in the 48-pin TQFP package and industrial temperature range is $1.95, with the ispPAC-POWR1014A-2 devices priced 10% higher. Samples are available now.
