Dialog unveils first IO-Link IC for Industry 4.0

Feb 26, 2020

Dialog Semiconductor has unveiled the latest member of its IO-Link product family, the CCE4503, expanding the company’s reach into the Industrial IoT (IIoT) market. The CCE4503 is the first IO-Link IC to be launched by Dialog following its acquisition of Creative Chips at the end of last year, and complements the company’s established family of IO-Link Device and Master ICs. IO-Link is the first globally standardised, serial bi-directional point-to-point communication technology (IEC 61131-9) for an industrial automation network. It provides communications for the last meters between sensors, actuators and any fieldbus within a network. The CCE4503 has been designed to be a 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 DFN10 3x3mm package. As a result, it is possible to add IO-Link connectivity to space-constricted industrial sensor and actuator devices. The design has also been optimised 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 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.
