San Jose, Calif. - Fairchildís micro-USB switch (FSA9280A) and USB transceiver (FUSB2500) have been designed to serve the ever-evolving demands placed upon USB ports in today's market. In addition to being the universal interface for mobile applications, today's USB must handle file transfers, battery-charging, music, and factory programming. Fairchild's new devices provide this enhanced functionality without adding design complexity or increasing space and power requirements.
The FSA9280A switch automatically detects accessories and configures the proper path for each accessory. This device can detect every accessory and charger in the market, and has a number of reserved resistors to accommodate new accessories such as glucometers, e-frames and audio docks. The FUSB2500 transceiver has an integrated charger detect that allows detection without additional component count.
The FSA9280A uses advanced sampling methods to minimize power consumption in the standby state, extending battery life. It also provides a negative switch capability in audio applications without consuming power; alternative solutions need a charge pump for this. Both the FSA9280A and FUSB2500 offer a low power down function that puts the device in standby when functions are not in use.
The FSA9280A features exceptionally low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of 0.1 percent to optimize performance.
The FSA9280A features many built-in protection functions and the FUSB2500 offers exceptionally high ESD protection, 15kV HBM, exceeding the 2kV standard.
By integrating a MOSFET and USB IP into one IC, the FSA9280A eliminates at least five additional components and reduces Bill of Material (BOM) costs.
The FSA9280A allows for every conceivable form of accessory and five future definable accessories, ushering in a full multi-media experience. It packs data, charging, audio, headset and other accessory connectivity into one solution.
Both of these products feature a power saving mode to help extend battery life for digital still cameras, portable medical and mobile applications.
Price each, in quantities of 1000: FUSB2500UCX $1.00, FSA9280AUMX $1.00.'Samples available now. Standard lead-time for both products is 8 weeks
