The MAX14819 IO-Link master transceiver from Maxim Integrated is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The architecture of the MAX14819 reduces power dissipation by up to 50% and is fully compatible in all modes for IO-Link and SIO compliance to enable designers to incorporate intelligent sensors into Industry 4.0 or industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The transceiver features an integrated internal framer/UART that enables the most flexible architecture while still achieving the fastest cycle times (up to 400 microseconds).
This allows designers to lower bill of materials (BOM) cost by eliminating the UART dependency from the microcontroller.
The device’s robust L+ supply controllers offer settable current limiting and reverse voltage/current protection to help ensure robust communications with the lowest power consumption.
The transceiver integrates two low-power sensor supply controllers with advanced current limiting, reverse current blocking, and reverse polarity protection capability to enable low-power robust solutions.
It provides a selectable driver current (100mA to 500mA), supports supply voltages from 9V to 36V.
In addition, the MAX14819 features a low typical on-resistance of just 1Ohm, which helps reduce power dissipation.
The device comes in a 48-pin 4 mm × 4 mm TQFN package that is specified for minus 40 to +125 degrees Celsius.
Mouser is also stocking the MAX14819EVKIT evaluation kit, which allows engineers to test the onboard MAX14819 transceiver.
The kit includes Windows 7-compatible software that provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the device.
