60V MERs Up Current Handling

Citing as much as 40% more current handling capability and up to 50% better on-resistance than similar devices, the PVG612A series microelectronic relays (MERs) handle maximum load currents of 3A ac and 6A dc. Otherwise identical, they are available in two package types: 6-pin DIP (PVG612A and PVG612AS) and surface-mount, 6-pin DIP (PVG612AS-T). Each component is a single-pole, normally open solid-state relay with an integrated circuit photovoltaic generator and HEXFET power MOSFET transistors, operating as the output switch. The switch is controlled by radiation from a light-emitting diode that is optically isolated from the generator. Other features include an input drive of 5 mA and TTL compatibility. Pricing for the PVG612A (6-pin DIP) begins at $3.59 each/10,000. INTERNATIONAL RECTIFIER, El Segundo, CA. (310) 252-7726.
