NVE Introduces Low-Cost Isolated RS-485 Transceivers

IsoLoop® IL3085 Isolated RS485 Transceiver
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—February 27, 2013—NVE Corporation has introduced low-cost versions of its award-winning IsoLoop® isolated RS-485 transceivers.

World’s Smallest
NVE’s unique narrow-body versions, designated with the -3E suffix, are the world’s smallest isolated transceivers. The 0.15-inch wide 16-pin “dash 3” SOIC package is half the size of other isolators.

Best-in-Class Specifications
The new transceivers feature best-in-class speed and efficiency for a low-cost transceiver, including 4 Mbps data rate and 3 milliamp typical controller-side quiescent current.

The parts meet or exceed ANSI RS-485 and ISO 8482:1987(E) industry standards.

Rugged and Reliable
Designed for rugged industrial applications, IL3085 transceivers have a -40 to +85 degree Celsius temperature range, 15 kV bus ESD protection, and current limiting and thermal shutdown features. Receiver inputs feature a “fail-safe if open” design.

Parts are IEC 61010-2001 approved and UL 1577 recognized. Unlike optocouplers or other isolation technologies, IsoLoop isolators have indefinite life at high voltage.

Available Now
The narrow-body IL3085-3E and wide-body IL3085E are both in stock for immediate delivery. Pricing is $2.60 each for 1,000 pieces for the IL3085-3E, and $3.25 for the IL3085E. Datasheets and more information are available at www.nve.com.

NVE is a leader in the practical commercialization of spintronics, a nanotechnology that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store and transmit information. The company manufactures high-performance spintronic products including sensors and couplers that are used to acquire and transmit data. NVE has also licensed its spintronic magnetoresistive random access memory technology, commonly known as MRAM.
