Router 5000 Chip

The Router 5000 chip is used to build high performance half-routers that increase the scalability and survivability of LONWORKS® control networks and lower installation costs by allowing mixed physical media to be used in a single installation.

Key Features

  • 3.3V operation
  • Higher Performance: Clock rate up to 40 MHz : Larger buffer size to allow for extended NVs and improved throughput.
  • Transceiver-independent design.
  • Compact 7mm x 7mm 48-pin QFN package.
  • Can be connected to a transceiver running at any LonWorks® bit rate from 610 bps to 1.25Mbps
  • Logical Isolation between two half-routers improves system reliability by isolating failures between channels.
  • Transparent multi-channel and multi-media support.
  • -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range.
