THine Releases New I/OSpreader Products Capable of 100M Digital Signal Transmission for Industrial Equipments

TOKYO--()--THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announced new I/OSpreader products, THCS133/134, that can transmit digital signal for 100m. I/OSpreader can reduce the number of cables drastically to one-sixteenth and has higher-level noise tolerance, transmitting digital data from a few centimeters up to 100 meters. It makes internal cable alignments simplified, reducing required internal space for cables, saving cable weight and designing period as well as costs of cables and connectors.

I/OSpreader technology converts parallel data with 16 cables to serial data with just a cable while electronic devices generally have each cable for each signal of data such as ON/OFF signals from switches, LED ON/OFF signals, controlling signals to motors, or those to speakers. In addition, I/OSpreader allows to transmit data with device address up to 16 devices simultaneously.

I/OSpreader is suitable for equipments with constraints in internal space for cables with switches, LEDs, motors, and speakers as well as equipments with hinges or structures of the joint in transmitting data between print circuit boards. For instance, I/OSpreader is expected to be applied to various equipments such as machine visions, security cameras, control systems in buildings and vehicles, ticket vending machines, automated teller machines, point of sales machines, multi-function printers, multi-function phones, industrial machine tools, pumps, robotics, conveyers, endoscopes, amusement equipments, speakers, and consumer electronics.

Features of THCS133/134

  • No outside clock required because of input parallel data to registers from internal clocks
  • Sampling frequency: 50Hz for unidirectional communication and 30Hz for bidirectional communication
  • Lineups with THCS134 packaged in QFN-20, supporting 16 bit signals and THCS133 packaged in DIP-20, supporting 8bit signals.
