NVE Corporation Adds Low-Power Tunneling Magnetoresistance Isolator Models
Typical total quiescent current only 0.3 milliamps per channel

IL01x Diagrams
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—November 28, 2018—NVE Corporation today announced two additions to its IL01x-Series of Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) low-power isolators. With the addition of the one-direction IL011-3E and IL015E models, NVE now offers low-power TMR isolators in all the popular channel configurations.

IL01x-Series isolators use NVE’s patented low-power spintronic Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) technology. With typical total quiescent current of just 0.3 milliamps per channel, the new parts use one-fourth the power of NVE’s flagship isolators.

A unique ceramic/polymer composite barrier provides excellent isolation, best-in-class barrier resistance, and virtually unlimited barrier life.

Even with the low power, the new parts provide remarkable performance:
  • 10 megabits per second guaranteed maximum data rate
  • No carriers or clocks for low electromagnetic interference
  • 100 teraohm insulation resistance
  • 2.5 kilovolts isolation
  • 44000 year barrier life
  • -40 to +100 degrees Celsius

The four-channel versions use NVE’s unique True 8™ wide-body SOIC-16 package with full eight-millimeter creepage in accordance with IEC60601.

Applications include:
  • Four-to-20 milliamp loop-powered controls
  • Battery-powered instruments
  • SPI
Lanched in June 2018, the IL01x-Series now includes five popular channel configurations:

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.
