Discover the key advantages of using our IO-Link Master and Device nodes when implementing smart industrial sensor and actuator networks. Thanks to their very efficient power stages, our IO-Link ICs are able to drive heavy loads with minimum power dissipation, ensuring application flexibility as well as providing a high level of embedded protection and compactness.
The P-NUCLEO-IOD01A1 is an STM32 Nucleo pack composed of the NUCLEO-L073RZ development board, the STEVAL-IOD003V1 evaluation board, and the X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2 expansion board.
The STEVAL-IOD003V1 offers an IO-Link device PHY layer (L6362A) while the NUCLEO-L073RZ runs an IO-Link demo stack (developed by and property of TEConcept Gmbh) compatible with rev 1.1 and firmware controlling the X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2 sensors.
The STM32 Nucleo pack provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for the development of IO-Link and SIO applications, thanks to the communication features and robustness of the L6362A transceiver, together with the STM32L073RZT6 computation performance.
The L6362A is an IO-Link and SIO mode transceiver compliant to PHY2 (3-wire connection) supporting COM1 (4.8 kbaud), COM2 (38.4 kbaud) and COM3 (230.4 kbaud) modes. The output stage can be configured as high-side, low-side or push-pull and it can drive resistive, capacitive and inductive loads. It can be connected to a sensor chip with the industrial 24 V environment. The industrial environment could be a PLC, an IO-Link master, a relay or a valve. The L6362A is protected against reverse polarity, among VCC, GND, OUTH, OUTL and I/Q pins. Furthermore, the IC is protected against output short-circuit, overvoltage and impulse voltage withstand (±1 kV pulse amplitude, 1.2/50 μs pulse duration, 500 Ω source impedance).
The L6360 is a monolithic IO-Link master port compliant with PHY2 (3-wire) supporting COM1 (4.8 kbaud), COM2 (38.4 kbaud) and COM3 (230.4 kbaud) modes. The C/QO output stage is programmable: high-side, low-side or push-pull; also cut-off current, cut-off current delay time, and restart delay, are programmable. Cut-off current and cut-off current delay time, combined with thermal shutdown and automatic restart, protect the device against overload and short-circuit. C/QO and L+ output stages are able to drive resistive, inductive and capacitive loads. Inductive loads up to 10 mJ can be driven. Supply voltage is monitored and low voltage conditions are detected.
The L6360 transfers, through the PHY2(C/QO pin), data received from a host microcontroller through the USART (IN C/QO pin), or to the USART (OUT C/QI pin) data received from PHY2 (C/QI pin). To enable full IC control, configuration and monitoring (i.e. fault conditions stored in the status register), the communication between the system microcontroller and the L6360 is based on a fast mode 2-wire I2C. The L6360 has nine registers to manage the programmable parameters and the status of the IC. Monitored fault conditions are: L+ line, overtemperature, C/Q overload, linear regulator undervoltage, and parity check. Internal LED driver circuitries, in open drain configuration, provide two programmable sequences to drive two LEDs.
