Dialog Semiconductor recently released its newest member of its IO-Link product family, the CCE4503. This IC both expands the company’s reach into the Industrial IoT (IIoT) market and reduces both the size and cost of the IO-Link Device sensors and actuators. IO-Link is a standardized, serial bi-directional, point-to-point communication technology (IEC 61131-9) that’s aimed at industrial automation networks. It provides robust communications for the last meters between sensors, actuators, and any fieldbus within a network.
The CCE4503 is a robust and easy-to-use device-side IO-Link-compliant transceiver that combines IO-Link standard communications with advanced protection circuitry and low power dissipation, within a tiny DFN10 3x3mm package. It also integrates an LDO, further reducing cost. As a result, developers can add IO-Link connectivity to space-constricted industrial sensors and actuators.
The CCE4503, now sampling, is supported by a comprehensive set of development support tools, industry standard IO-Link software and a full-featured customer evaluation board. For more information, see the video.
