Malvern, Pa. Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released its TCLT series of optocouplers in long-body, low-profile 4-pin and 5-pin surface-mount SOP-6 mini-flat packages with a new extended temperature range of -40°C to +110deg;C. Comprised of 18 devices, The TCLT optocouplers offer the higher isolation voltages of larger packages, while providing board space savings.
The TCLT series of phototransistor output optocouplers offer the same 2-mm profile as the industry-standard mini-flat package, but with a longer body for a better creepage and clearance distance of 8 mm minimum. The devices feature a high isolation voltage of 5000 Vrms, which is normally found only in larger DIP packages, said Vishay, and when compared to a DIP-6 SMD package, save 46% on board space.
The optocouplers feature a construction consisting of a phototransistor optically coupled to a gallium arsenide infrared-emitting diode in a 4- or 5-lead SOP-6L package. The elements are mounted in a way to provide a minimum insulation thickness of 0.75 mm between the input and output, which meets the stringent safety requirements for a reinforced isolation rating.
Current transfer ratios, which range from 22% to 200% (minimum), differentiate the 18 optocouplers. All the devices in the TCLT family feature an extra-low coupling capacitance of 0.3 pF. The devices are lead (Pb)-free and comply with the RoHS 2002/95/EC and WEEE 2002/96/EC directives.
The optocouplers are optimized for high-temperature performance in feedback loop, microprocessor system interface, and electronic control system applications in switchmode power supplies for medical equipment, power tools, household products, industrial automation equipment, and white goods.
