Uwe tipped us to Texas Instruments’ low power 7-channel relay and inductive load sink driver ICs:
TI offers two rather new low power 1,8V & 3.3V & 5V 7-channel relay and inductive load sink driver ICs:
Perfect for driving relays, lamps, LEDs/displays, small stepper motors etc. with 5V, 3.3V and 1.8V MCUs – dissipating less than 1/10 of the power than the classic ULM2003/ULM2003A which is used in many 5V designs.
They can be used as level shifters as well ;)
Thanks Uwe! Via the contact form.
