The company says that according to market analysts it has the largest single share (~15%) of the transient voltage suppressor market, and cites its packaging technology as a differentiator. Both devices are housed in the QFN-48L (7 x 7mm) package with a large exposed thermal pad that optimises power dissipation at ambient temperatures greater than 100ºC.
* 8 high-speed SPI protected outputs;
* 8/16-bit high-speed SPI output;
* High-side inputs with common ground;
* Integrated 5V regulator;
* 30V+ reverse polarity protection;
* Energy-free LED output signal for visual status indication;
* 78 mW/channel power-dissipation capability;
* Temperature/voltage alarm options.
The high-speed inputs and outputs are fully compliant with the requirements of best-in-class PLCs.
The CLT01-38SQ7 also delivers robustness compliant with the most stringent international EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) standards such as IEC 61000-4.2, IEC61000-4.4, and IEC6100-4.5.
