Industry’s Smallest and Fastest USB UARTs

Single, Dual, and Quad-Channel UARTs with Industry’s Smallest Package Choices, plus Optimized Software Drivers Deliver Superior Design Options
The XR21V1410 (V1410), XR21V1412 (V1412), and XR21V1414 (V1414) are enhanced 1-channel, 2-channel and 4-channel Universal Asynchronous Receiver and Transmitter (UART) with a USB interface. The USB interface is fully compliant to Full Speed USB 2.0 specification that supports 12 Mbps USB data transfer rate. The USB interface also supports USB suspend, resume and remote wakeup operations. The V141x operates from an internal 48 MHz clock therefore no external crystal/oscillator is required like previous generation UARTs. With the fractional baud rate generator, any baud rate can accurately be generated using the internal48MHz clock. The large 128-byte TX FIFO and 384-byte RX FIFO of the V141x helps to optimize the overall data throughput for various applications. The Automatic Transceiver Direction control feature simplifies both the hardware and software for half-duplex RS-485 applications. The multi-drop(9-bit) mode with automatic half-duplex transceiver control feature further simplifies typical multidropRS-485 applications. The V141x operates from a single 2.97 to 3.63 voltpower supply and has 5V tolerant inputs. Virtual COM port drivers for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and CE, as well as Linux and Mac are supported for the XR21V1410, XR21V1412 and XR21V1414.

LTC3787 - PolyPhase Synchronous Boost Controller
Eliminates Heat Sink with 97% Efficiency
The LTC®3787 is a high performance PolyPhase® single output synchronous boost converter controller that drives two N-channel power MOSFET stages outof-phase. Multiphase operation reduces input and output capacitor requirements and allows the use of smaller inductors than the single-phase equivalent. Synchronous rectification increases efficiency, reduces power losses and eases thermal requirements, enabling high power boost applications. A 4.5V to 38V input supply range encompasses a wide range of system architectures and battery chemistries. When biased from the output of the boost converter or another auxiliary supply, the LTC3787 can operate from an input supply as low as 2.5V after start-up. The operating frequency can be set for a 50kHz to 900kHz range or synchronized to an external clock using the internal PLL. PolyPhase operation allows the LTC3787 to be configured for 2-, 3-, 4-, 6- and 12-phase operation. The SS pin ramps the output voltage during start-up. The PLLIN/MODE pin selects Burst Mode® operation, pulse-skipping mode or forced continuous mode at light loads.

Key Features:

LTM8042 - μModule Boost LED Driver and Current Source
μModule LED String Drivers with 40VIN Transient Protection
The LTM®8042 is a complete μModule® Boost LED Driver specifically designed to drive LEDs up to 1A, while the LTM8042-1 drives up to 350mA. It combines a boost power topology with a unique current loop to operate as a constant-current source. The PWM input provides as much as 3000:1 LED dimming, while 10:1 analog dimming can be accomplished by a single resistor or analog voltage applied to the CTL pin. As with any boost topology, the LTM8042/LTM8042-1 has an uninterrupted current path between its input and output and is thus intolerant to a short-circuit or overload from the output to ground. The LTM8042/LTM8042-1 is packaged in a thermally enhanced, compact overmolded land grid array (LGA) package. The LTM8042/LTM8042-1 is Pb-free and a RoHS compliant.

Application Notes

In order to simplify the design process, Nu Horizons has created a series of application notes designed to guide engineers through the process of interfacing different devices together. Using a detailed step-by-step approach, these design guides identify key elements in the design process. Topics in the application notes are organized by design task and each topic is a stand-alone section, with a short introduction or overview, followed by the step-by-step design guidelines. All steps include a sufficient level of detail to provide the designer with relevant information to proceed quickly and easily from start to finish.

Nu Horizons offers a wide range of development / evaluation boards, tools and kits featuring the latest technology from the most trusted suppliers in the industry.
