TI Interface Products & Isolation Solutions

Texas Instruments offers a broad face of interface products delivering efficient, robust and reliable communication. 

IO-Link transceivers with integrated protection in a tiny package    

The TIOL111 transceiver implements the IO-Link interface for industrial bidirectional, point-to-point communication. When connected to an IO-Link master through a three-wire interface, the master can initiate communication and exchange data with the remote node while the TIOL111 acts as a complete physical layer for the communication.

Digital Sensor Output Driver With Integrated Surge Protection

TIOS101 is configurable as a high-side, low-side or push-pull driver and is capable of withstanding up to 1.2 kV (500 Ω) of IEC 61000-4-5 surge, featuring integrated reverse polarity protection. A simple pin-programmable interface allows easy interfacing to the controller circuits.

Multiple Switch Detection Interface for industrial applications

The TIC12400 Multiple Switch Detection Interface (MSDI) switch and sensor monitor directly monitors and provides built-in diagnostics for 24 channel inputs. The device’s polling sequence architecture reduces the processor active time, significantly cutting system power usage in industrial applications.

Meet the Highest Efficiency Reinforced Isolator with DC/DC Power

With the industry’s most efficient power transfer, lowest radiated emissions and highest immunity, the ISOW7841 reinforced digital isolator helps support reliable operation of industrial systems. The device offers integrated isolated power and data up to 100 Mbps. Higher power delivery and longer system lifetime are enabled through 80% higher efficiency compared to other integrated solutions.

Latest Power Management ICs from Ricoh


Ricoh have introduced new power management ICs to their latest product selection.

RP604 300 mA Buck-Boost DC/DC Converter for IoT applications

This product is in particular suitable in case a supply voltage is required which is somewhere in between the voltage level of a fully charged and fully discharged battery. At a certain moment the DC/DC Converter needs to switch over from Buck to Boost mode automatically. The RP604 is designed for IoT applications which are mainly in a sleep mode and wake-up periodically to perform a measurement, transmit some data and resume to sleep mode again. For such kind of applications, the current consumption in sleep mode should be kept as low as possible. The RP604 consumes only 0.3 µA and has a peak efficiency of 90% at 0.1 mA output current.

RP511 100mA Buck DC/DC converter for IoT applications 

The RP511 is a VFM buck DC/DC Converters with synchronous rectification which can be powered from a coin cell to a USB port. The smallest solution requires only 8.0 mm2 PCB area including three external components. Therefore, this product is highly suitable for small wearable applications such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, RF modules, sensor devices etc. Current consumption is only 0.3 µA and peak efficiency is at 95% at 0.1 mA.

Using OEMsecrets to find the best price for electronic components

On a busy market, such as the electronic spares one, finding the best price for the part you need, can be difficult. One should have an idea about the seller, the exact type of spare they need and invest a lot of time searching for the best deal for their money. The last part is the most difficult of them all. Yet, there is now a much simple way to compare electronic components prices and purchase straight from the manufacturer or distributor: OEMsecrets the online search engine for electronic parts.

Simple, transparent and unmediated price comparison and purchase

Comparing electronic components prices on OEMsecrets is simple and fast, while the buying process is transparent.

Price comparison on OEMsecrets:

You can do it in 2 simple ways:

If you know the serial number for the electronic spare you are looking for, you simply type it in in the search box on the home page of OEMsecret’s platform.

Or, you can use the online catalogue of electronics, listed alphabetically.

Either way, the result will be the same. A list of all manufacturers or distributors along with the quantity available, the price requested by each seller, a description of the product, the features of the product and a datasheet for the electronic component and, last but not least, supplier information. All to help you, the buyer, make the wisest decision when deciding to purchase an electronic spare part.

This process allows for a transparent and safe marketplace where buying or selling is reliable and secure.

And when it comes to actually acquiring the electronic spare or spares, once you click the buy button on OEMsecrets, you are redirected to the manufacturer’s or distributor’s website. This way, you get to purchase straight from the source. No intermediates and no additional costs. Not to mention, you can compare prices and buy electronic components on OEMsecrets for free.
