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
PS9587 Serie (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.
