The μPD78F8069 microcontroller is designed with the refinement of IO-Link Master products and remote IO systems in mind. As a System-in-Package, it integrates the digital processing unit for handling the IO-Link protocol software and 2 state-of-the-art analog transceivers for physically connecting IO-Link devices to the industrial network. Built around a 16-bit low power CPU core, the μPD78F8069 microcontroller offers all the peripherals one would look to find in a microcontroller of this class. The 2 built-in IO-Link transceivers are fully independent, providing developers full control over their system' scalability and the number of ports to operate into a given application. They combine the IO-Link ports with wake-up generation, IEC61131-2 compatible digital inputs, multiple advanced protection and monitoring features.


Key Features:

I/O port for IO-Link transceiver
  • IO-Link I/O:4 (CQ_IN1/2, CQ_OUT1/2)
  • External output channel: 2 (PMOS Gate control)
  • IO-Link supply switch supporting external PMOS transistors
  • Wake-up generation support
  • Digital inputs configurable for IO-Link or IEC61131-2 compatible interface
  • SPI interface for configuration, programming and diagnostic functions
  • Over-current & short-circuit protection at output stages with configurable thresholds

Over temperature protection

Serial Interface for IO-Link CSI for IO-Link Transceiver: 1 channel, UART for IO-Link Transceiver: 2 channels
Timer for IO-Link PWM outputs for internal connection to IO-Link transceiver : 2 (TO11, TO21)
