X-REL Semiconductor, an innovation leader in high-temperature and high-reliability semiconductors, unveils two new products targeting digital applications in highly demanding markets including aerospace, industrial, hybrid and electric vehicles, transportation, geothermal and oil and gas. The XTR50010 product family targets bidirectional data communication between multiple supply voltages with data rates up to 30Mbps and operating temperature over +230°C. This product family is broken down in two lines based on whether data signal directions are selected individually or by group. Supply voltages on both level shifter component sides can range from 2.5V to 5.5V. Transmission direction control pins can be controlled from either power supply domain.
For devices with individual transmission direction selection, each data port input/output terminal direction is automatically set based upon which signal side is externally controlled. This brings a significant flexibility removing the need to set direction by design. Instead the component decides by itself. Channel transmission direction changes on the fly. An output enable control pin controlled from either side allows the device to be set in high-impedance mode or as driver. The products from this line are XTR50011 and XTR50012.
For devices where the data transmission direction is set for all signals at once, a dedicated control pin selects which side are inputs, with the other side becoming outputs. This direction control pin can be driven from either side. The products from this line are XTR50014 and XTR50015.
The second new product family introduced is the XTR54170 for Positive-Edge D flip-flop products. Inside this family are two product references which are equivalent to standard products. The first, XTR54175, is a quad D flip-flop with clear. The second, XTR541G74, is a single Positive-Edge D flip-flop with set and reset.
These two new families broaden X-REL’s portfolio of innovative products unleashing new design capabilities for interface and control of digital and mixed-signal high-temperature, high-reliability and extended lifetime applications.
As with all of the X-REL Semiconductor products, devices in the XTR50010 and XTR54170 families are able to reliably operate from -60°C to well above +230°C (5 years at +230°C). Being operational at high temperatures is mandatory in applications where the environment is at elevated temperature or where some other device makes the temperature inside the application increase. Additionally, all X-REL Semiconductor products can be used in applications running at lower temperatures (e.g. from 100°C to 200°C) where extended lifetime is expected or where failing is not an option. For example, the expected lifetime of X-REL Semiconductor parts in an application operating at Tj=150°C is over 35 years.
Parts from XTR50010 and XTR54170 families are already available and can be immediately deployed in both niche and large-scale markets in high-reliability compact hermetic or plastic packages, as well as bare dies.
