ON Semiconductor, driving energy efficient innovations, has introduced three new KNX certified twisted pair transceivers for smart building applications. The new devices allow small, low-cost external components, while delivering increased regulator current and boosting overall efficiency by up to 20 percent compared to existing solutions. "The three new transceivers we are launching today support the world's most adopted standard for building automation, and enable designers to create even more cost-effective products offering greater functionality and energy efficiency," said Ryan Cameron, vice president of Industrial and Timing products for ON Semiconductor. "Making buildings smarter is key to preserving the environment and ensuring energy security, as buildings currently represent about 40 percent of the world's energy consumption."
The NCN5110, NCN5121 and NCN5130 integrate two high-efficiency DC-DC converters and a 20 V low drop-out regulator for powering external loads from the bus. The devices are offered in a QFN-40 package and are specified for operation over the extended temperature range of -40°C to 105°C.
