Isolators use very little power because they switch
in just 2.5 nanoseconds using only one-third
of a nanojoule of energy. The devices can switch
over 100 million times with less than the nutritional
energy in one cracker crumb (0.00001 Calories).
Speaking of crumbs, two bits are known as a “crumb,”
and two-channel IsoLoop Isolators are available
in packages as small as MSOPs.
new ADV001-00E is a unique GMR digital magnetic switch
with a bipolar output. The sensor maintains an operate
point with the application of a negative (south) field,
and a release point with the application of a positive
(north) field. Extremely low magnetic operate points
allow large air gaps.
Applications include magnetic encoders, pneumatic
cylinder position sensing, and speed sensing.
Summary specifications are as follows:
or 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm TDFN
Operate/Release Point ±4 Oe
Supply Voltage 4.5 - 30 V
Drive Current 20 mA
Range -40°C to +125°C
Isolator Line Expanded
IL510-1 and IL511-1 are new additions to the IsoLoop
MSOP8 Isolator line. The world’s smallest isolators
of their type, MSOPs can reduce board area by up to
a factor of ten compared to single-channel PDIP isolators.
Like all IsoLoop Isolators, MSOP isolators feature
excellent magnetic immunity and unlimited life. A
-1 suffix on isolator part numbers designates
an MSOP. IsoLoop MSOP Isolators are available in a
variety of input, output, and channel configurations.
And, of course, NVE also offers the industry's broadest
line of SOIC, PDIP, narrow-body, and wide-body isolators.
More than a dozen MSOP isolator part types are currently
stock and available for immediate delivery.
Key MSOP isolator features include:
mm by 3 mm MSOP-8
or Digital Inputs
or Two Channels
or Open-Drain Outputs
Clock Option (IL510-1)
kVrms Isolation (1 min.)
Director, Isolator Product Development and Applications
In addition to 2,500 Vrms input-to-output withstand
voltage, the IL600 series of IsoLoop isolators provide
outstanding isolation of 400 Vrms between adjacent channels.
These unique devices allow very simple channel separation
in industrial process control applications, especially
PLCs, where the reference ground of each channel may
be different. The data line is powered by the signal,
so no input power supply is required. With two channels
available in the tiny MSOP footprint, more functionality
can be crammed into a smaller space without sacrificing
channel-to-channel or ground-to-ground isolation.
