IO-Link High-Voltage Line Driver

ZMDI's ZIOL2411 offers two independent I/O channels that meet the physical layer requirements of master, sensor and actuator systems used in factory automation applications. The ZIOL2411 is pin- and function-compatible with the ZIOL2401. Designed for master applications ZMDI provides with the ZIOL2411 a cost-efficient IC without an integrated dc/dc converter. Operating temperature of the ZIOL2411 is -40 to +85C. The IC comes in a 4 x 4 mm QFN24 package. An exposed die paddle is for heat distribution.

ZMDI's new high-voltage line driver ZIOL2411 is useful for harsh environments in automation applications and is fully programmable ranging from slew rate, and current settings to numerous diagnostics and protection features. ZMDI's existing IO-Link tools also support the ZIOL2411. Using the same IC and development tools for all serial I/O saves design time and shortens time to market.

The ZIOL2401 Starter and Lab Kits are for ZMDI IO-Link products including the ZIOL2411. The Lab Kit includes an evaluation board and a Windows-based configuration tool, with a USB interface between the PC and the board. Developers can evaluate configurations and save the results. In-system programming via SPI is also supported, allowing full customization after manufacturing.
