Vishay Release New Series of Optocouplers

June 29, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (Malvern, PA) announced the release of a new series of single-channel and dual-channel, 10 MBd optocouplers packaged in a reinforced-insulation construction. The new devices combine aninput LED with an integrated optical photodiode IC detector optimized for applications requiring high data rates. The six optocouplers are aimed at industrial applications, including communication bus lines, high-speed ADCs and DACs, digital control power supplies and industrial controller I/O interfaces.

Along with a typical speed of 10 MBd and a 100 °C operating temperature rating, the optocouplers feature fast rise and fall times, CMR values up to 10,000 V/µs, typical pulse-width distortion of 2.9 ns, a typical propagation delay of 50 ns, reinforced insulation per IEC60950 (pending), eight pure tin leads, noise immunity, and a guaranteed common-mode transient immunity of 5 kV/µs for the SFH6741 and SFH6751 and 10 kV/µs for the SFH6742 and SFH6752.

Samples of the new 10 MBd optocouplers are available now with lead times of six to eight weeks for larger orders. Production quantities are available now. Pricing for 10,000-piece quantities starts at $0.75 per piece.
