Extended Home Bus to Small Actuators
The MAX22088 Home Bus transceiver complies with the Home Bus standard, where data and power are passed on one single pair of wires, while minimizing the need for external components. The MAX22088 eliminates the large external AC-blocking inductor typically required in bus-powered applications and improves the signal quality to allow for longer cables.
The demo highlights how a simple Home Bus actuator can be controlled through a Home Bus control unit. The actuator uses StallGuard™ for detecting end positions without actual end-switches, as well as noiseless movement.
