New Yorker Electronics has announced the release of five new Vishay 10MBd high-speed optocouplers that provide low power consumption to save energy in industrial applications. Featuring a wide voltage supply range of 2.7 V to 5.5 V and an open collector output, the Vishay single-channel VOH260A, VOIH060A, and VOWH260A and dual-channel VOH263A and VOIH063A enable usage with low voltage microcontrollers and I2C and SPI bus systems.

Offered in DIP-8, SMD-8, and SOIC-8 packages, the Vishay Semiconductors devices released today utilize a highly efficient input LED coupled to an integrated photodetector logic gate with a strobable output. The optocouplers combine a low supply current of 5 mA maximum per channel with a low typical turn-on threshold current of 2 mA typical, which simplifies designs by eliminating the need for an additional driver stage for a direct microcontroller connection.

The VOH260A, VOIH060A, VOWH260A, VOH263A, and VOIH063A are ideal for data communications, high speed A/D and D/A conversion, level shifting, and providing high voltage safety in automation equipment, motor drives, and tools. The devices feature an internal shield that provides a guaranteed common mode transient immunity (CMTI) of 15 kV/μs minimum. Combined with their low turn-on threshold and supply current, this makes the optocouplers ideal for noise isolation and breaking up ground loops in these applications.

The RoHS-compliant devices offer maximum rated withstand isolation voltage up to 5000 VRMS, and provide isolation distances from 5 mm to 10 mm to cover a wide range of requirements, including applications with working voltages exceeding 1000 V.

Samples and production quantities of the R3T2FPHM3 are available now from New Yorker Electronics, with lead times of 12 weeks. Vishay manufactures one of the world’s largest portfolios of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components that are essential to innovative designs in the automotive, industrial, computing, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, and medical markets. As a franchised distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies Vishay discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors and capacitors).
