Bridge Module To Simplify BiSS Line Implementation

iC-Haus has launched a iC-BL bridge module that provides a spread of options simplifying BiSS Line Implementation on any platform.

Bidirectional Interface for Serial/Synchronous or because it is called BiSS is a communication protocol utilized in industrial automation units. BiSS Line is a one-cable expertise for BiSS interface and allows a strong energy and knowledge transmission over simply two or 4 wires. The presence of bidirectional sensor and actuator knowledge transmission from BiSS Line grasp to BiSS Line Slave.

The iC-Haus’ new bridge module, iC-BL, presents a variety of features and a flexible I/O port. It simplifies the implementation of BiSS Line on any platform. As a BiSS C, SSI, SPI and I2C grasp in addition to an SPI slave, iC-BL can be utilized as a BiSS Line slave to simply combine all kinds of applied sciences into BiSS Line on the sensor aspect. On the management aspect, BiSS Line communication with the BiSS Line grasp iC-BL is coordinated by way of the built-in BiSS C or SPI slave interface, in order that protected transmission paths could be carried out in lots of purposes.

The availability voltage vary (5V, 7V…30V), an on-chip DC/DC converter for producing a stabilized sensor provide (2.5V, 3.3V or 5V at max. 200mA) and a non-volatile OTP reminiscence for machine configuration — all in a compact 5mm x 5mm QFN28 package deal allows large flexibility for product software.

The versatile I/O port additionally allows parallel task of a number of interfaces (e.g. BiSS C and I2C/SPI). Extra sensor knowledge, e.g. from an I2C temperature sensor or an SPI accelerometer for modern Trade 4.0 purposes resembling situation monitoring and predictive upkeep, can thus be built-in very simply into the cyclic knowledge transmission.

BiSS Line can be carried out as a strong transmission channel between a number of microcontrollers. Much more complicated bus techniques with a number of BiSS Line slaves could be carried out on this means. The RS485 transceivers for differential communication are already included in iC-BL. Furthermore, the built-in error correction makes the communication extraordinarily sturdy even in harsh environments with electromagnetic interference fields (e.g. motor suggestions purposes, building equipment) and permits corrections of as much as 4 bytes.
