Vishay's New Solid-State Relay Provides On-Resistance of 5 Ohms in 4.7-mm by 7.4-mm Package for Security and Instrumentation Applications
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — September 8, 2006 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced theVO1400AEFTR, a miniature 1-Form-A solid-state relay (SSR) with low on-resistance of 5 ohms, trigger current of 1 mA, and load voltage of 60 V. Using an optical medium, the new device provides clean, bounce-free switching for indoor security, instrumentation, and industrial control systems.
Packaged in the 4-pin SOP, the VO1400's 4.7-mm by 7.4-mm footprint provides up to 75 % space savings on PCBs, enabling smaller form factors for passive infrared sensors, electronic access controls, test instruments, circuit board testers, and semiconductor test equipment.
The low input trigger current of the VO1400AEFTR makes it easy to interface the device to standard logic circuits, while the low output on-resistance and load voltage parameters benefit systems designed for low power operation. The VO1400AEFTR is rated for an isolation test voltage of 1500 V. Solid-state construction results in arc-free switching, magnetic interference immunity, and a longer operating life compared to electromechanical reed relays.
Samples and production quantities of the VO1400 are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for larger orders.
