NVE Introduces True 8 mm Creepage Bidirectional Isolators

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—April 18, 2013—NVE Corporation has introduced high-speed, two-channel bidirectional isolators in NVE’s unique True 8™ true eight millimeter creepage isolator package.

Creepage is the shortest distance over the surface of an insulating material between conductive elements, and is a critical dimension in isolated systems. Eight millimeter creepage is required in certain demanding applications. IsoLoop® True 8 Isolators offer true eight millimeter creepage in an industry standard-compliant package.

The True 8 Package
True 8
With ordinary wide-body packages, tolerances, variability between package molds, and surface metal in the creepage path mean full eight millimeter creepage cannot be assured. NVE custom tooled the True 8 isolator package to meet isolation creepage requirements and the leadframe to minimize surface metal that reduces creepage.

High-Performance Bidirectional Isolators
IsoLoop Isolators’ technology remarkable channel matching make them especially effective in bidirectional applications. The IsoLoop isolator line includes more than thirty bidirectional part types. Unmatched specifications include:
    • 18 nanoseconds maximum propagation delay
    • Pulse-width distortion to 300 picoseconds
    • 100 picoseconds jitter
    • 3 nanoseconds maximum channel-to-channel skew

Available Now
Two versions are in stock for and available for immediate delivery. The IL721E has a maximum operating temperature of 100 degrees Celsius, and the IL721TE operates to 125 degrees Celsius. Pricing is $3.95 each for the IL721E in 1,000 piece quantities and $4.25 for the IL721TE.
