Monday, November 25, 2002

Mission Viejo, CA - Holt Integrated Circuit announces the release of our ruggedized CMOS 5 Volt Transceiver products for MIL-STD-1553 data bus applications. In addition to having the lowest power consumption on the market, the complete Holt transceiver product line features advanced internal protection circuitry that protects against destructive over-current conditions that can occur from an unintentional short across a transceiver's output. All of Holt's MIL-STD-1553 transceiver products, including the HI-1567, HI-1568 and HI-1570, also have built-in protection from excessive current drain when they are connected to an un-terminated bus or stub.

"Avionics systems require robust integrated circuits that will operate reliably in a wide variety of applications and conditions," says Jerry Donaldson, Director of Marketing for Holt. "We have addressed these stringent demands of the next generation avionics designer with our high reliability, lowest power, smallest footprint, cost-effective MIL-STD-1553 transceiver products."

Holt's commitment to the avionics market continues with the development of additional MIL-STD-1553 products. Our 3.3V compliant transceivers are scheduled for introduction in the first quarter of 2003.
