Product Description

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC2874, an IO-Link master IC, combining a power and communications interface to four remote IO-Link devices (slaves).

A rugged interface and rich feature set make the LTC2874 ideal for larger systems implementing IO-Link (IEC61131-9) in harsh, industrial environments. Managing four slaves per master IC, the LTC2874 reduces board space, design complexity and costs while increasing reliability.

Unique features of the LTC2874 include automatic Wake-Up Request (WURQ) generation and an output supply current-boosting capability for slave start-up. The WURQ generator produces self-timed wake-up pulses of correct polarity, reducing demands on the microcontroller.

Safety mechanisms manage multi-port and repeat WURQs to prevent thermal overload and maintain error-free communication. The current-boosting pulse generator fully implements the start-up current pulse requirements added to the IO-Link v1.1.1 specification.

The LTC2874 adds robustness and reliability to the physical interface specified in the IO-Link standard. The onboard Hot Swap™ controller and external N-channel MOSFET in the power interface protect connected devices from inrush currents during start-up and fault conditions.

Integrated ±50V blocking diodes in the data line interface protect against faults and high voltage excursions, making it well-suited for the harsh PLC environment driving cables up to 20m long.

The data lines withstand ±8kV HBM ESD without latchup or damage; all other pins are protected to ±6kV HBM. A SPI interface allows host configuration and monitoring of multiple parameters including input supply voltage, output power good status, and fault events.

Programmable controls for Hot Swap current limit foldback, circuit breaker timers, noise suppression filters and current sinking add flexibility for communication and fault handling in various systems.

Improved robustness

Output supply voltage and inrush current are ramped up in a controlled manner using external N-channel MOSFETs

Continuous monitoring

Wake-up pulse generation, line noise suppression, connection sensing and automatic restart after fault conditions are supported.

Rapid communication

Configuration and fault reporting are exchanged using a SPI-compatible 4-wire interface that operates at clock rates up to 20MHz.

Industrial applications

An 8V to 30V operating range supports the legacy Standard I/O (SIO) mode and other applications. Driver outputs can be paralleled to achieve 4× the drive capability required by IO-Link. Signalling pins are compatible with IEC 61131-2 type 2 and type 3 digital I/O.

Hot-plugging

A cable-sensing feature ensures that power supply outputs turn on only after cables are connected, allowing hot-plugging without sparking, which might otherwise reduce connector lifetime.

RoHS compliance

The LTC2874 supports the industrial operating temperature range of –40°C to 85°C, and is available in an RoHS-compliant 5mm × 7mm QFN or TSSOP package.
