The first member of a family of high-voltage line drivers, the ZIOL2401 is a high-voltage line driver with IO-Link functionality. IO-Link is an open standard used in factory automation for linking sensors and actuators, and works with all types of factory data buses. The chip offers two independent I/O channels that meet the physical layer requirements of sensor and actuator systems used in factory automation applications. The ZIOL2401 combines an advanced two-channel IO-Link driver with a DC-DC converter capable of producing up to 15 V. This converter can power external sensors as well as the ZIOL2401 itself, saving space and cost in board designs. The IO-Link drivers are fully programmable, including slew rate and current limitation, and offer complete diagnostics as well as over temperature protection. Operating temperature is from -25°C to +85°C. The IC comes in a 4-mm x 4-mm QFN24 package. An exposed die paddle ensures optimum heat distribution. An application kit is available with an evaluation board and a Windows-based configuration tool. Prices start at $5 each in lots of 1000 or more; samples are available now.
