Infineon shows their latest industrial control solution at Embedded World 2014 (PSDtv))



In this episode of PSDtv Infineon demonstrates their latest solution for industrial control at embedded world 2014 for Power Systems Design. Infineon's ISOFACE ISO1I81xT product family (ISO1I811T, ISO1I813T) of galvanically isolated 8-channel digital input ICs samples input data from digital sensors and switches. The digital input ICs can be directly connected to digital inputs like sensors or switches and the micro-controller or bus-ASIC. Robust galvanic isolation is integrated. Up to 8 inputs according to IEC61131-2 (Type 1/2/3) can be connected per IC. The precise characteristic of the current sink of the IC’s inputs reduces the power dissipation per channel by a factor of up to 2.5-times compared to solutions using resistors and opto-couplers.
