SANTA CLARA, CALIF. Ixys' 900-V current regulators, the IXCY-10M90S (TO-252) and IXCP-10M90S (TO-220), are suitable for sensitive loads, in-rush current limiters, soft-start applications and adjustable regulators.
They operate in a normally on mode and require a negative gate bias of 5 V to turn them off. Current limiting (1 to 100 mA) can be programmed either by a gate voltage or by a resistor in series with the cathode. They can maintain this current up to 900 V, subject to the temperature and power limitations of the silicon chip and package. Dynamic resistance is 100 kilohms. Current regulation is plus/minus 5 percent from 25 to 125 C.
Deliveries of sample quantities are from stock, and samples and production quantities of both types will be available in 12 to 16 weeks. The IXCY10M90S is priced at 99 cents and the IXCP10M90S is $1.50, both in 1k quantities.
