NVE Introduces Low-Power
Isolated RS-485 Transceiver
New part draws less than one-third the supply current of standard products
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.June 28, 2017NVE Corporation (Nasdaq: NVEC) today
introduced the IL2985, a low-power version of the companys award-winning
RS-485/RS-422 isolated digital transceiver product family. The new parts are the
first commercial isolators to use
Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) technology for low power without sacrificing
With a typical total quiescent current of just 2.4 milliamps at five volts,
the new IL2985 draws less than one-third the supply current of the companys
standard products, which are already fairly low power.
In addition to low power consumption, the new parts offer best-in-class performance:
4 megabits per second data rate
2500 volts isolation voltage
44000 year barrier life
Low EMC footprint
Thermal shutdown protection
A unique ceramic/polymer composite barrier provides excellent isolation and virtually
unlimited barrier life.
The new IL2985 is in stock and available for immediate delivery, and is priced
at $3.55 each in 1,000-piece quantities. A datasheet 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.
