What is a Peripheral Driver?
A peripheral driver is an electronic circuit that contains a piece of software that enables a computer to communicate with a peripheral device.
Types of Peripheral Drivers
There are several different kinds of peripheral drivers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by maximum output current, maximum output voltage, number of outputs, nominal operating power and packaging type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for maximum output voltage are 80 V and 30 V. We also carry peripheral drivers with maximum output voltage up to 60 kV. The number of outputs can be 2, 5 or 8, with the most common chips having 2 or 8 outputs.
Peripheral Drivers from Future Electronics
Future Electronics has a complete selection of peripheral drivers from several chip manufacturers that can be used as a Bluetooth peripheral driver, peripheral device driver as well as for any circuits that might require peripheral drivers.
If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as Cissoid, IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc., Micrel Semiconductor or STMicroelectronics, among other manufacturers. You can easily refine your peripheral driver product search results by clicking your preferred peripheral driver brand below from our list of manufacturers.
Applications for Peripheral Drivers:
Some applications for peripheral drivers are:
- Bluetooth devices
- Stereo wireless headsets
- Power conversion, generation and actuator controls in aeronautics
- Solar inverters
- Intelligent power modules
- Battery chargers, motor drives & DC-DC converters
- Power conversion and motor drives in railway applications
- Wind turbine power converters
- Switched mode power supplies
Choosing the Right Peripheral Driver:
When you are looking for the right peripheral drivers, you can filter the results by various attributes with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search: by Number of Outputs (Dual, Five or Eight), Maximum Output Voltage (up to 60 kV) and Maximum Output Current (from 50 µA to 2 A) to name a few. You will be able to find the right peripheral driver chip that can be used as a peripheral device driver or Bluetooth peripheral driver.
Peripheral Drivers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities
If the quantity of peripheral drivers required is less than a full reel, we offer to customers many of our peripheral driver products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.
In addition, Future Electronics offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch so you can find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
