Gleichmann Announces NEC PS9587 Optocouplers

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/ s 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.

About Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH
Since its foundation 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 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, graphic displays and customized battery solutions. The deep technical know-how of our sales engineers and field applications engineers enable us to implement complete new designs right up to the manufactured product to satisfy customers’ requests. Owning two ASIC design centers, a research laboratory and one of Europe’s largest, state-of-the-art programming facilities, Gleichmann & Co Electronics GmbH leads the way in custom design services.
