NEC Electronics’ PS9587 series enables transfer of data of up to 10 Mbit/s speed

New high speed optocoupler series in 8-pin DIP package supports applications with high safety requirements

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) Gleichmann Electronics presents NEC Electronics’ new PS9587 series of high speed optocouplers with a GaAlAs LED on the input side and an open collector output.

The devices, available in eight different versions, are designed for high speed logic data interfaces with 5 V supply voltage line. The maximum propagation delay time (t_PLH/ t_PHL) of 75 ns enables the transfer of data of up to 10 Mbit/s speed.

The optocouplers are offered with 5000 Vrms isolation voltage, >0.4 mm isolation distance and, depending on the version,>7 mm or >8 mm outer creepage distance. The internal shield between input and output side guarantees a common mode transient immunity of minimum 15 kV/μs and typically 20kV/µs.

The new PS9587 series of high speed optocouplers comply with current international safety certificates (UL, VDE, etc.). Furthermore, the devices use nickel-palladium-gold (NiPdAu) as lead-free pin plating material and are fully RoHS-compliant.

The optocouplers are supplied in an 8-pin DIP package and are ideally suited for high speed communication interfaces, factory automation networks, test and measurement equipment and many other applications in harsh industrial environments. Samples are available now from Gleichmann Electronics.

MSC Technologies GmbH

Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company's early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, displays and customer specific power supplies. From this, the resulting in-depth technical know-how of our sales engineers and field application engineers today enables us, if required by the customer, even implementation of complete new designs right up to the finished product. With two of its own ASIC design centers, the Gleichmann research laboratory in Austria and one of the largest and most modern programming centers in Europe, Gleichmann Electronics takes a leading role in terms of service and customer support.
