Vishay's new phototriacs provide dV/dt greater than 5 kV/

Vishay Electronic : 26 April, 2006  (New Product)
The new ZC VO4157 and VO4158 series phototriacs consist of a GaAs infrared LED that is optically coupled to a photosensitive ZC TRIAC detector chip. This design type helps to reduce EMI noise harmonics while featuring lower peak operating currents, making it well suited for noise sensitive circuits. Devices in the VO4257 and VO4258 series of NZC phototriacs, on the other hand, have the advantage of being able to trigger any time during the ac phase cycle and turn off at the next zero crossing. This makes the NZC devices an ideal choice for many phase modulation applications.
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. today announced a new line of phototriacs that feature a trigger of 1.6 mA, lower than any other supplier, and a static dV/dt greater than 5 kV/s. Encased in a 6-pin DIP package, the new zero-crossing and non-zero-crossing phototriac optocouplers are designed for switching AC loads and driving larger SCRs or TRIACs in industrial applications.

Both families have very low trigger currents of 1.6 mA, making it possible to directly interface with microcontrollers and digital circuits. Trigger currents of 2.0 mA and 3.0 mA are also available. All three versions are offered in 700-V and 800-V blocking voltages and can provide isolation for low-voltage logic for 120-V, 240-V, and 380-V AC lines to control resistive, inductive, or capacitive loads.
