San Jose, Calif. Fairchild Semiconductor says the FSSD06 is the first multiplexer that supports high voltage and dual-voltage secure digital (SD)/secure digital I/O (SDIO)/ multimedia cards (MMC), enabling an application's processor to multiplex between a SD card, SDIO card, MMC card and peripherals. Applications include multi-functional portable devices such as GPS devices, cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players and printers.
The secure data, two-port multiplexer enables a 1.8-V host processor to interface with high-voltage (2.7 V-3.6 V) and dual-voltage (1.65 V-1.95 V, 2.7 V-3.6 V) cards, providing bi-directional communication while consuming only 1 uA of battery power. In addition, the FSSD06 supports data transfer rates up to 52 MHz and provides 5 kV electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. The device is housed in a 3.5 x 4.5 mm, 24-lead MLP package.
The FSSD06 is RoHS compliant. These products use lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and have been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020.
