Santa Clara, Calif.NEC's exclusive sales and marketing partner, California Eastern Laboratories, has introduced the first in a series of isolated gate driver optocouplers.
Employing a new BiCMOS process, the PS9552 series of optocouplers delivers up to 2.5A output current with high common mode transient immunity (CMR) and fast switching speeds. Designed for driving IGBTs and Power MOSFETs, the PS9552 series is suitable for motor drive, inverter, induction heating, and servo applications.
Key specifications include a large peak output current of 2.5-A max; high CMR of ±15 kV/µs min; fast switching speed of 0.5-µs max; and a propagation delay difference of ±0.35-µs max.
PS9552 series optocouplers feature a GaAlAs light-emitting diode on the input side of the chip and a photo diode, signal processing circuitry, and power transistors on the output side. Under Voltage Lockout Protection (UVLO) is a standard feature. Also featured are RoHS-compliant white epoxy packages that are designed to limit heat absorption in high current applications.
Four versions are available: An 8 pin DIP and an 8 pin gullwing-style package for surface mount, plus DIP and gullwing packages with 8mm creepage designed to meet international safety certification standards.
Availability: In stock and available now.
