NVE Introduces Low-Cost Isolated RS-485 Transceivers
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.February 27, 2013NVE Corporation has introduced
low-cost versions of its award-winning IsoLoop® isolated RS-485 transceivers.
NVEs unique narrow-body versions, designated with the -3E suffix, are the
worlds smallest isolated transceivers. The 0.15-inch wide 16-pin dash 3
SOIC package is half the size of other isolators.
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
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
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.
NVEs award-winning IL400/IL3000 line of isolated transceivers includes RS-422,
RS-485, and PROFIBUS protocols; speeds up to 40 megabits per second; digital
and passive input versions; and unique 0.15-inch narrow-body packages.
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.
