) recently launched a new integrated slave transceiver named
NCN5150. The NCN5150 fulfills all criteria essential to comply
with the two established European standards namely, EN 13757-2
and EN 13757-3. It can be used in two-wire meter bus (M-Bus)
slave devices and repeaters.
The NCN5150 keeps internal power consumption to a minimum, thus
making extra power available to the sensor in the application.
Its low voltage bus operation facilitates operations on extended
M-Bus networks. It operates in a wide temperature range and is
therefore suitable for diverse operating environments. Its robust
nature allows it to cope with errors during execution.
The NCN5150 is available in two packages, SOIC-16 and QFN-20,
with the latter being suitable for space constrained
A transceiver is a device consisting of both a transmitter and a
receiver, which are combined and share a common electronic
circuit or a single housing.
