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.
