Smoke-Detector IC Offers Low-Voltage Operation, Programmable Calibration and Operating Modes
Programmable calibration and selection of smoke-detector operating modes provides designers with an easy way to control smoke-detector operation, and enables a single IC to be used to design smoke detectors for different markets and regulatory requirements. This feature also reduces the number of external components required, as electronic programmability allows the integration of several formerly external components into the IC, which in turn reduces costs associated with manufacturing and inventory.
The RE46C190 smoke-detector IC is available in a 16-pin SOIC 150 mil package for $0.94 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. Samples are available today, at http://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.micr...
