THine Unveils Its New Interface Technology, I/OSpreader, That Can Reduce 16 Cables for Signal Transmission to Just One

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/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 equipments 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 bidirectional communication
  • Lineups with THCS131 packaged in DIP-20, supporting 8 bit signals
