...Analogue IC uses PowerSense circuit technology to add I/O
functionality and minimise power consumption...

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), today announced the availability of the
CS1112, a quad power output driver IC, designed to withstand the harsh and
noisy environments found in computer, industrial and telecommunication

Fabricated on a proprietary PowerSense process technology that improves
die density and increases power efficiencies to minimise chip power
consumption, the CS1112 integrates four protected DMOS low-side drivers
controlled either through a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) port or its
associated parallel input.

Whereas standard bipolar processes require constant DC bias currents to
activate circuit functionality, PowerSense circuits dissipate power only
during active output switching. The CS1112 features a sleep mode (VDD £
0.5V), where it draws 2 microamperes of bias current and guaranteed
maximum quiescent current is 5 milli amperes when any or all four drivers
are operational.

While the CS1112 efficiently drives standard resistive/inductive loads
common to high-speed instrumentation, the device is best used to redesign,
upgrade or retrofit systems using multi-driver solutions in automotive
applications. The extended industrial operating temperature range is - 40
degrees Celsius to +125 degrees Celsius.

The differentiating features of the CS1112 are I/O control and output
protection features that include overcurrent protection, open load
detection, and inductive flyback clamps. Operation will latch off in the
event of overvoltage (+35V typical) or undervoltage (+4.5V typical)

The CS1112 is in a 24 lead SOIC plastic package with internally fused
leads. Devices are available in bulk form at 31 units per rail or tape and
reel and1000 units per reel. In quantities of 10,000 pieces, the CS1112 is
priced at $2.36. Additional device information can be downloaded from
