Digital Input Output (I/O)
Robust and reliable semiconductor solutions for digital I/O modules
From system and operational cost pressure, to multiple system communication standards, to smaller form factors: digital I/O applications currently face a number of challenges. Furthermore, there’s growing demand for flexible use and system reliability is competing for market shares. Evolving customer needs also factor in. A solution’s IP protection and access limitation – as well as its power consumption and system longevity – play decisive roles from the customer perspective. Safety aspects are likewise ever more important, in particular when controlling drives. In this competitive marketplace, long-term experience is key, as are features such as simple, low cost maintenance, and data access security.
Market-leading power switching and security/decryptions solutions from Infineon take these challenges head on. Experts in the field, we maintain close ties with the biggest system manufactures, with whom we collaborate on digital I/O development. Result: robust, reliable semiconductor solutions, such as our ISOFACE™ and PROFET™ families, that optimally fulfill customer needs for input and output control.

Straight talk about the right switches
One of the most crucial components of an I/O module is the switch. Generally speaking, two types of configurations are possible: high-side or low-side. Regardless of the configuration, Infineon offers dedicated solutions that boost your project. Our high-side ISOFACE™ switches are known for their high level of integration and robustness. They also offer galvanic isolation, protection and diagnostic feedbacks in one device. Take a moment to explore Infineon's Industrial PROFET™ (PROtected FET) products. These high-side switches include protection and diagnosis functions to ensure safe system operation of I/O modules. Look further to our OptiMOS™ 5 40V and 60V families which are Infineon’s discrete solutions for I/O modules. They are also thermally optimized and feature the lowest R DS (on).
The HITFET™ family is Infineon’s answer to all lowside configurations. Built-in protection and intelligence features makes these components ideal for use in PLCs and I/O modules. A one-stop-shop, at Infineon you’ll find all components for your designs from one trusted source. From µC, to security, to power management, to communication, to protection.
