Gleichmann : I-O transceiver has 200 mA driver performance

Gleichmann Electronics expands its product portfolio with the immediate availability of Elmos’ I/O-Link transceiver E981.10. This component allows the continuous transmission of process, parameter and diagnostic data reaching down to the lowest automation level.

The transceiver meets all requirements of the relevant standards and its features include a wide input voltage range from 8 to 36 V, a high driver performance of up to 200 mA, integrated wakeup detection and a data transmission speed of up to 230 kbit/s. The driver allows configuration as low-side, high-side or push-pull. Short-circuit, over-current and over-temperature protection functions ensure a high operating safety and also simplify application design.

Thanks to an internal 5 V voltage regulator and a 3.3/5 V compatible digital interface, the E981.10 can be used with a variety of existing microcontrollers e.g. NEC Electronics Europe’s 78K0 MCU, which in this case takes over protocol implementation. The component is useable with a chip temperature up to +150°C and is provided in a small 4×4 mm QFN 4×4 package, thus making it ideally suitable for use in compact sensors and actuators. Datasheets and samples are available from stock. Demo boards are available upon request.

Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH

Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company’s early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, displays and customer specific power supplies. From this, the resulting in-depth technical know-how of our sales engineers and field application engineers today enables us, if required by the customer, even implementation of complete new designs right up to the finished product. With two of its own ASIC design centers, the Gleichmann research laboratory in Austria and one of the largest and most modern programming centers in Europe, Gleichmann Electronics takes a leading role in terms of service and customer support.
