STEVAL-IFP016V2
IO-Link communication master transceiver demonstration board based on the L6360

The STEVAL-IFP016V2 IO-Link communication master transceiver demonstration board is based on the L6360, monolithic IO-Link master port. A modular and customizable application that interfaces externally with the microcontroller. The purpose of the board is to demonstrate the capability of the L6360 monolithic IO-Link master, as communication transceiver for multiple I/Os.

The board uses input signal from the microcontroller and outputs the 24 V required for industrial applications.

The board demonstrates that the L6360 is both IO-Link master port mode and standard IO mode compliant.

The interface is compatible with the STEVAL-PCC009V2 and STEVAL-PCC009V1 EMC-immune application against ESD, burst, surge, RF noise, etc., according to IEC61000-4-2, IEC61000-4-4, IEC61000-4-5, and IEC61000-4-6 standards.

A large GND area on the printed circuit board has been designed in order to minimize noise and ensure good thermal performance.

The small size of the L6360 package with a reduced pin number, along with the small size of the application area, allow the user to work in applications where space constraint is critical. The L6360 is a monolithic IO-Link master port, compliant with PHY2 (3 wires) supporting COM1 (4.8 kbaud), COM2 (38.4 kbaud) and COM3 (230.4 kbaud) modes. The output stage (high-side, low-side or push-pull) as well as the cutoff current, cutoff current delay time, and restart delay, are programmable by I2C protocol.

The cutoff current and cutoff current delay time, combined with the thermal shutdown and automatic restart, protect the device against overload and short-circuit. The output stages are able to drive resistive, inductive and capacitive loads. Fast demagnetization is able to dissipate the energy stored in the inductive loads.
