The L6362A is an IO-Link and SIO mode transceiver device compliant to PHY2 (3-wire connection) supporting COM1 (4.8 kbaud), COM2 (38.4 kbaud) and COM3 (230.4 kbaud) modes. The output stage can be configured as high-side, low-side or push-pull and it can drive resistive, capacitive and inductive loads. It can be connected to a sensor chip with the industrial 24 V environment. The industrial environment could be a PLC, an IO-Link master, a relay or a valve. The L6362A is protected against reverse polarity, among VCC, GND, OUTH, OUTL and I/Q pins. Furthermore, the IC is protected against output short-circuit, overvoltage and impulse voltage withstand (±1 kV pulse amplitude, 1.2/50 μs pulse duration, 500 Ω source impedance).
