Maxim Integrated MAX14914 High-Side/Push-Pull Drivers

Featuring settable current-limiting, push-pull driver option and digital output configuration

The Maxim Integrated MAX14914 is a family of high-side/push-pull drivers that operate as both an industrial digital output (DO) and an industrial digital input (DI).

Designed to work together with the MAX22000 Industrial Configurable Analog I/O device, the MAX14914 family features full IEC 61131-2 compliance in both their DO and DI modes of operation. The high-side switch current is resistor settable from 135mA (min) to 1.3A (min). The MAX14914’s high-side driver on-resistance is 120mΩ (typ) at 125°C ambient temperature. Optional push-pull operation allows driving of cables and fast discharge of load capacitance. The output voltage of the Maxim Integrated MAX14914 is monitored and indicated through the DOI_LVL pin for safety applications.

The MAX14914 family complies with Type 1, Type 2, or Type 3 input characteristics when configured for DI operation. It is a low-DOI-leakage device.
