|Maxim's Digital Input ICs Deliver 50% Smaller Footprint, 60% Lower Power and 6x Faster Throughput|
|Extended digital IO family addresses Industry 4.0 challenges|
|MUNICH, Germany – November 6, 2018 – Designers of industrial equipment striving to meet the size, power and performance requirements of Industry 4.0 applications can now turn to an expanded family of digital input devices from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM). One of the new devices, MAX22192, is integrated into the company's Go-IO programmable logic controller (PLC) reference design, also announced today.
As manufacturing becomes increasingly automated, there is a stronger need for real-time decision-making and feedback-loop mechanisms. These intelligent Industry 4.0 systems require digital input ICs inside the PLCs to receive on/off status signals. Yet, for ease of integration throughout manufacturing environments, the devices must be robust, high-performing and compact.
Maxim's expanded portfolio of IEC61131-2-compliant digital input devices offers the industry's smallest solution size (by as much as 50%), features the lowest power dissipation (by as much as 60%), is up to 6x faster and has the most robust performance (integrating 1kV of surge protection and integrated diagnostics). In addition, the family also includes a parasitically powered digital input that reduces power dissipation by up to 60 percent and does not require a discrete isolated power supply.
The newest digital input devices include:
“With increasing decentralization and miniaturization of industrial process control technology, Mouser’s customers seek leading power control options. Maxim’s new family of digital inputs provides the small size and high performance needed across a vast spectrum of automated factory equipment,” said Kristin Schuetter, vice president of supplier management, Semiconductors, at Mouser Electronics.
“Maxim is committed to providing a superior, robust family of digital IO devices with many flavors to meet the varying demands of automated manufacturing environments. The newest digital input products are poised to help take adaptive manufacturing to a new level,” said Tim Leung, director, business management, Industrial Communications Business Unit, at Maxim Integrated.
