The CCE4503 IO-Link IC expands the company’s reach into the Industrial IoT (IIoT) market. It is the first new IO-Link IC launched by Dialog following the acquisition of Creative Chips last year. IO-Link is a globally standardized, serial bi-directional point-to-point communication technology (IEC 61131-9) for industrial automation networks. It provides communications between sensors, actuators and any fieldbus within a network.
The CCE4503 is a robust 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. The device allows IO-Link connectivity for the most space-constricted industrial sensor and actuator devices. The design has also been optimized for cost, allowing smaller and cheaper devices to benefit from the IO-Link connectivity.
The CCE4503 is sampling and is supported by development support tools, industry-standard IO-Link software and evaluation board.
