Beverly, Mass. Clare Inc.'s two new OptoMOS solid-state relays were designed to fight board density. Clare said that its LCA210 and LCA220 common-input relays offer an integrated solution for designs that require two form-A outputs controlled by a single input. That can save board space, design time and manufacturing costs, according to Clare.
The company touted the relays' small package as well as a reliable architecture that includes an internal connection tying the two relay inputs together. This internal link further reduces board space and simplifies circuit-board layout, the company said. Both of these OptoMOS relays are machine insertable and wave solderable, making them compatible with automated manufacturing processes.
The LCA210 offers a load voltage rating of 350 V, with a load current rating of 85 mA, for remotely switching telecom test equipment on and off the line. The LCA220 offers a load voltage rating of 250 V and a load current rating of 120 mA. It targets industrial control and instrumentation applications.
"These two additions to the OptoMOS line enable Clare to offer a more robust set of solutions to the telecommunications test and industrial control equipment markets-two of Clare's key markets," said David Donlin, marketing engineer for the OptoMOS line of solid-state relays.
In 25,000-piece quantities, the LCA210 is priced at $2.44 with a standard lead time of five weeks.
The LCA220 is priced at $2.85 in the same quantities, also with a standard lead time of five weeks.
