Texas – Industry-first seven-channel relay driver can reduce board space by 80 percent (ULN2003LV)Aug 23 2012 - New Technologies and Energy Harvesting [More New Technologies and Energy Harvesting Articles]
Introduced as the industry’s first fully-integrated, seven-channel relay driver that can support low-voltage relays from as low as 1.8V up to 5V, the ULN2003LV has been unveiled by Texas Instruments (TI).
The relay driver replaces a handful of discrete components with a single device to drive lower voltages for data relays and rails within telecommunications equipment. Using the ULN2003LV integrated circuit (IC), customers can reduce board space by up to 80 percent, while lowering power consumption and cost, says the company.More news from Texas Instruments
