Electronic system designers typically have a central processing unit that interfaces with other peripheral devices, other sub-systems or the user. Often, the signals from these interconnects may be incompatible on both ends. Therefore, various semiconductor devices such as analog switches, high speed switches, voltage level translators and GPIO expanders are often used to bridge between the interconnects on the board. In this session, we will present the broad portfolio of NXP’s interface and connectivity solutions that go around the processor. These solutions include signal switches, voltage translation, I2C interface devices, real time clocks, and temperature sensors. We will also present some solutions for managing the power to the system.
