THine Unveils Its New Interface Technology, I/OSpreader, That Can Reduce 16 Cables for Signal Transmission to Just One
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed
serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announced its
new interface technology, I/OSpreader, reducing 16 cables for
transmitting digital data to just one within electronics equipment.
I/OSpreader can be applied in various applications, simplifying internal
cable alignments, reducing required internal space for cables, designing
period, and costs for cables and connectors. THine has started its mass
production of its new products, THCS131/132 with I/OSpreader.
I/OSpreader converts parallel data with 16 cables to serial data with
just a cable while, for example, electronic devices generally have each
cable for each signal of data such as ON (News - Alert)/OFF signals from switches, LED
ON/OFF signals, controlling signals to motors, or those to speakers. In
addition, I/OSpreader allows to transmit data with device address up to
16 devices simultaneously.
I/OSpreader is suitable for eqipments that have constraints in internal
space for cables with switches, LEDs, motors, speakers, and equipments
with hinges or structures of the joint in transmitting data. For
instance, I/OSpreader is expected to be applied to various equipments
such as ticket vending machines, automated teller machine, point of
sales machines, multi-function printers, multi-function phones,
industrial machine tools, pumps, robotics, endoscopes, amusement
equipments, speakers, and consumer electronics.
Features of THCS131/132
No outside clock required because of input parallel data to registers
from internal clocks
Sampling frequency: 50Hz for unidirectional communication and 30Hz for
Lineups with THCS131 packaged in DIP-20, supporting 8 bit signals
