The device described in this paper is a new quad line driver to be used in the hostile and noisy industrial environment and developed in mixed technology (BCD: Bipolar, Cmos, Dmos). It consists of four independent line drivers, each of which has a rail-to-rail push-pull output stage realized with power DMOS transistors connected in half bridge configuration. Even though the device is designed to be mainly used in the output cards of programmable controllers, it is a general purpose device since… CONTINUE READING
