What is a Signal Interface?
Signal interfacing is the conversion of one signal type to another. Signal interfaces are devices or instruments that solve important ground loop and signal conversion challenges. They are also used to protect, step down, linearize, share, split, boost and digitize process signals. Examples of signal interface devices include LVDS, UART, USB, RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485.
Types of Signal Interfaces
There are several different kinds of signal interfaces at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including data rate, interface circuit type, supply voltage, operating temperature range, number of functions, number of channels and packaging type. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.
Signal Interfaces from Future Electronics
Future Electronics has a wide range of signal interfaces from several manufacturers. Once you decide if you need an LVDS, UART or USB device, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific signal interface application needs.
We deal with several manufacturers such as FTDI Chip, Micrel Semiconductor, Fairchild, EXAR and NXP, among others. You can easily refine your signal interface product search results by clicking your preferred signal interface brand from the list of manufacturers below.
Applications for Signal Interfaces:
Signal interfacing is used in applications including GPS units, modems, Bluetooth modules and flat panel displays. Signal interface devices are also used for high data transmission in printers, digital copiers and cell phones. They are also used for avionic communications and surveillance, computer speakers, microphones, sound cards, modems, ethernet adapters, wifi adapters, CNC machines, USB flash drives, digital audio players and digital cameras.
Choosing the Right Signal Interface:
With the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, when looking for the right signal interface, you can filter the results by the required category. We carry the following categories of signal interfaces:
Once you choose the signal interface category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by data rate, interface circuit type, supply voltage, operating temperature range, number of functions, number of channels and packaging type to name a few. You will be able to find the right LVDS, USB, UART, RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 signal interface using these filters.
Signal Interface devices in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities
If the quantity of signal interfaces you require is less than a full reel, we offer customers several of our signal interface devices in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.
Future Electronics also offers clients a unique bonded inventory program designed in order to eliminate potential problems that can arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
