RA-4565SA chip from <a href=Epson Toyocom" ALIGN="RIGHT">

Epson Toyocom Corp. has added the RA-4565SA chip with support for high-speed serial interfaces to its lineup of real-time clock modules that can operate in high-temperature environments, including vehicle applications and industrial machines.

The new chip follows Epson's already available RA-8565SA device, which features I?C bus interface and offers a high temperature of up to 125C warranty and high reliability. The RA-4565SA adds a four-line serial interface for faster communication, said Epson. This enables users to select a real-time clock module for high temperature environments that matches their interface specification.

RA-4565SA has an operating temperature range of -40C to 125C. It features an operating power supply voltage of 1.6 -5.5V. Its standby current consumption, when Ta = 125C are 0.95?A (typ.)/5V and 0.80?A (typ.)/3V. When Ta = 25C, the chip's standby current consumption is 0.60?A (typ.)/5V and 0.55?A(typ.)/3V.

RA-4565SA features a 32.768kHz crystal unit built-in on-chip. The oscillation characteristics guarantees a frequency stability of 5 23 x 10-6. The device's 32.768kHz output function is open drain output with output control function. The real-time clock functions as clock and calendar, automatic leap year correction, alarm interrupt and periodic timer interrupt among others.

The chip measures 10.1-by-7.4-by-3.2mm and is housed in a 14-pin SOP. Product samples will begin shipping in August.
