Analog Devices Introduces Industry’s First Analog Fault Detection and Protection Switch Family for Analog Input/Output Modules in Harsh Environments

Nov 12 2014 - Norwood, MA
  • ADG5412F-PRAnalog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) today introduced a family of fault detection and protection, low/ultra-flat Ron switches: the ADG5412F, ADG5413F, ADG5412BF and ADG5413BF. By identifying when a channel is in a fault, this innovative switch technology removes the need for additional hardware and software error-detection schemes, leading to an improvement in system uptime.

    The new switches also offer a best-in-class combination of robustness and precision performance in a small package, suiting them for precision instrumentation, process control and avionic signal chains. Providing up to ± 55-V over-voltage protection, coupled with a 5.5-kV HBM ESD level, these switches protect downstream system components in both power-on and power-off states, while protecting against hot-swapping and operator miss-use events. The leading-edge combination of low Ron, Ron flatness and low leakage, coupled with the removal of discrete protection components, leads to a reduction in signal distortion and system error budget. The ultra-low Ron flatness level offered by this family also minimizes system total harmonic distortion and noise performance.
