Si834x Isolated Smart Switch

Si834x devices provide four isolated high- or low-side switches with low "ON" state switch resistance. Si834x switches are ideal for driving resistive and inductive loads including solenoids, relays, and lamps commonly found in industrial control systems such as programmable logic controllers (PLC). Each switch is galvanically isolated for safety using our groundbreaking CMOS based isolation technology.

 Si834x switches are extremely robust and flexible load drivers and are capable of providing up to .5 A of IEC61131-2 compliant continuous current in a quad channel configuration. Each switch can detect an open circuit condition and is protected against over-current, over-voltage from demagnetization (inductive kick or flyback voltage), and over-temperature conditions. An innovative multi-voltage smart clamp is used to efficiently handle an unlimited amount of demagnetization energy (EAS). The Si834xx over-current protection includes an innovative inrush current mode on select products, allowing the switch to drive challenging loads such as lamps and DC motors. Additionally, the device power supplies are monitored, and the switches are safely constrained or shutdown if a fault is detected. View the current datasheet errata

Output  Driver Type: Output driver can source current in a high-side, open-source configuration or sink current in a low-side, open-drain configuration.
Input  Interface: SPI interface provides access to all diagnostic, fault, and channel status information. SPI-only interface allows output channel control as well.
Output  Channels: One and two-channel configurations require PCB traces to combine pins together to achieve rated output current. See Section 5.2 Recommended Application Circuits for details.
Package Type: Additional indicator, fault, and protection configurations are available upon request Contact Skyworks for more information.
