Maxim Integrated has unveiled the Alameda subsystem that the company says is a flexible bipolar analog output intended for industrial automation applications. According to the manufacturer, the subsystem will enable designers to add a high-accuracy, 4-channel analog output to their industrial automation designs with 33 per cent fewer components than competitive designs.

Industrial programmable logic controllers (PLCs) need multiple, flexible, high accuracy analog outputs. The Alameda subsystem combines four high-accuracy (< ±0.1 per cent) outputs with a high-efficiency, low-noise power supply controller on a single board. Alameda claims to offer extreme flexibility; its outputs are configurable to ±10V, ±20mA, 0-10V, or 4-20mA for current and voltage applications. Automatic error reporting for detecting open and short circuits, brown-outs, and overtemperature conditions make this subsystem ideal for demanding, precision industrial control and automation applications.

The Alameda (MAXREFDES24#) subsystem reference design is available.
