STMicroelectronics – IO-Link transceiver for PLCs and industrial communications


The L6362A from STMicroelectronics is an IO-Link and serial I/O- mode transceiver for PHY2 three-wire connections which supports the COM1 4.8kbaud, COM2 38.4kbaud and COM3 230.4kbaud communication modes.

The output stage can be configured as high-side, low-side or push-pull, and can drive resistive, capacitive and inductive loads. It is intended to be connected to a sensor in an industrial 24V system, and to a PLC, an IO-Link master, a relay or a valve.

The L6362A provides various protection functions which enable it to withstand transient over-voltage and over-current events.
