DDC Adds MQFP Package Option to RD-19240 Resolver-to-Digital Converter

Bohemia, New York (April 11, 2005) – Data Device Corporation (DDC) announces the addition of an MQFP (metric plastic quad flat pack) package option for its low-cost RD-19240 resolver-to-digital (R/D) converter. The RD-19240FS is a 14-bit R/D converter with an accuracy of 8 arc minutes plus 1 LSB designed for factory automation and automotive applications that require a rugged lower cost solution with medium accuracy.

The RD-19240FS MQFP package has 52 pins and is 10 mm square. MQFP packages are common packages used in industrial applications and are familiar to the customer base. The part number for the MQFP package is RD-19240FS. The part number for the LPCC (leadless plastic chip carrier) package, the original RD-19240 package, is RD-19240LS. Both package options are recommended for new applications. The package decision is mostly a matter of customer preference.

The RD-19240FS retains the same features in the original RD-19240LS while reducing the number of pins to 52. Many “No Connection” pins are eliminated. The converter still incorporates all its key features such as a +5 V-only supply, programmable resolution, tracking rate, and bandwidth, differential and single-ended input options, Built-in-Test (BIT), and digital velocity output. Output options are A quad B or parallel data. The RD-19240FS is available in operating temperature ranges of –40 to +85oC for industrial applications and –40 to +125oC for automotive applications.

“DDC added the MQFP package option based upon customer feedback. Some customers prefer MQFP packages due to familiarity with this style of package. DDC listens to its customers and incorporates customer feedback into its products whenever possible,” said Jack Redus, Marketing Manager at DDC.

Data Device Corporation is an international leader in high-reliability data conversion interface components and subsystems for military and commercial applications. Established in 1964 with the introduction of the first synchro-to-digital module, DDC's design and manufacturing facility is located in Bohemia, New York.
