Holt Integrated Circuits has introduced a new ARINC 429 line receiver family with integrated lightning protection circuitry.
According to the Mission Viejo, Calif.-based supplier of integrated circuits for avionics, the new receiver family has built-in circuitry with RTCA/DO-160G compliance. Included in the new family are four devices; two single-channel receivers, HI-8450 and HI-8451 in an industry standard 8-pin SOIC package, and two quad-channel devices, HI-8454 and HI-8455, in a 20-pin TSSOP package or a 5mm square 32-pin QFN package.
“Many recently introduced Holt products integrate previously external circuitry,” said George Noh, director of sales and marketing at Holt. “Our strategy adds features like internal lightning protection, hardware-programmed “no MCU” operation, and on-chip DC/DC conversion for single supply operation to provide our customers with substantial cost and space savings.”
