PIXI technology from Maxim Integtated


The MAX11300 is our first programmable mixed-signal I/O device featuring PIXI technology. This flexible solution combines a 12-bit, multichannel ADC and a 12-bit, multichannel, buffered DAC—all in a single, programmable IC.

It gives you 20 configurable, high-voltage, bipolar ports, each of which can be an ADC analog input, a DAC analog output, a general-purpose input port, a general-purpose output port, or an analog switch terminal.

PIXI programmable mixed-signal I/O devices save you PCB real estate, let you instantly reconfigure and adapt your design, cut your system BOM cost, and speed your time to market.

The MAX11300 comes complete with free, easy-to-use design software featuring a drag-and-drop GUI. A simple click configures any of its 20 ports as an ADC, DAC, comparator, GPIO, or analog switch.

Don’t let analog slow down your next design. Get started with PIXI technology today.

New LED driver MAX16838B from Maxim Integrated

Integrated, 2-Channel, High-Brightness LED Driver with High-Voltage Boost and SEPIC Controller

The MAX16838B is a dual-channel LED driver that integrates both the DC-DC switching boost regulator and two 150mA current sinks.
A current-mode switching DC-DC controller provides the necessary voltage to both strings of HB LEDs. The MAX16838B accepts a wide 4.75V to
40V input voltage range and directly withstands automotive load-dump events. For a 5V ±10% input voltage, connect VIN to VCC.
The wide input range allows powering HB LEDs for small-to-medium-sized LCD displays in automotive and display backlight applications.
