The CCE4503 is a new IO-Link IC that connects the smallest and most price-sensitive IO-Link Device sensors and actuators.
The CCE4503 is the first IO-Link IC to be launched by Dialog Semiconductor following its acquisition of Creative Chips in November 2019 and complements the company’s well-established family of IO-Link Device and Master ICs. IO-Link is the first globally standardized, serial bi-directional point-to-point communication technology (IEC 61131-9) for an industrial automation network. It provides robust communications for the last meters between sensors, actuators and any fieldbus within a network.
The CCE4503 is a highly robust and easy-to-use device-side IO-Link-compliant transceiver that combines IO-Link standard communications with advanced protection circuitry and low power dissipation, within a tiny DFN10 3×3-mm package. This makes it possible to add IO-Link connectivity to the most space-constricted industrial sensor and actuator devices. The design has also been rigorously optimized for cost, enabling a greater number of IO-Link devices to benefit from the IO-Link connectivity that provides deeper data access to the cloud.
“Industrial sensors and actuators are integrating more functionality in smaller form factors with greater demands for cloud connectivity,” said Dr. Lutz Porombka, Vice President of Dialog’s Industrial Mixed Signal Business Unit. “The CCE4503 and its optimized feature set is the result of customer-driven demand for a smaller, more cost-efficient IO-Link solution that enables the next generation of Industry 4.0 devices.”
The CCE4503, now currently sampling, is supported by a comprehensive set of development support tools, industry-standard IO-Link software and a full-featured customer evaluation board.
