NVE Corporation Announces Low-Power Isolators

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—March 28, 2018—NVE Corporation today announced the first IL01x-Series low-power isolators, with typical total quiescent current of just 0.3 milliamps per channel.

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
  • 44000 year barrier life
  • 2.5 kilovolts isolation
  • -40 to +100 degrees Celsius
The new devices use NVE’s patented low-power spintronic Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) technology. A unique ceramic/polymer composite barrier provides excellent isolation, best-in-class barrier resistance, and virtually unlimited barrier life.

VDE V 0884-11 and UL 1577 approvals are pending. The four-channel versions use NVE’s unique True 8™ wide-body SOIC-16 package with full 8-millimeter creepage in accordance with IEC60601.

Applications include:
  • Four-to-20 milliamp loop-powered controls
  • Battery-powered instruments
  • Serial Peripheral Interfaces (SPI)
Samples of two popular channel configurations are available now, with two more coming soon:

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.
