Sunnyvale, Calif.Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX16054, a pushbutton on/off controller with debounce circuitry and ±15kV ESD protection.
This device features state memory that causes the output state to latch after the switch is released/opened, thereby allowing normally open switches to act as on/off switches. Enabling simpler, lower-cost switches with on/off capability, the MAX16054 is suitable for handheld devices, portable electronics, set-top boxes, portable instrumentation, and white goods.
The MAX16054 is designed to withstand harsh operating conditions. Its integrated switch-debounce circuitry allows the device to accept a noisy input from a mechanical switch and produce a clean, latched digital output signal.
The MAX16054 is rated to withstand up to ±15kV of ESD, providing essential protection for applications involving an end-user interface. Moreover, the switch's input features over-voltage clamping diodes that allow the device to handle voltage swings of ±25V to ground.
The MAX16054 consumes 7-microamps of quiescent current. It is available in a small, 6-pin thin-SOT23 package, and is fully specified over the -40°C to +125°C automotive temperature range.
Pricing: Starts at $1.07 (1000-up).
