IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc. Key Developments

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), Inc. Announces Availability of the LIA135 and LIA136

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced the availability of the LIA135 and LIA136 low voltage optically isolated error amplifiers each with an integrated programmable precision shunt reference incorporated into a single 8-pin package. Unique to this pair of devices is the capability of the error amplifier and shunt reference to operate down to 1.6V, the industry’s lowest level, enabling higher efficiency, isolated low voltage power supply designs. The LIA135 and LIA136 offers a 1.299V internal precision voltage reference with a very low 0.5% tolerance for improved power supply accuracy. Optically isolated error amplifiers are important integrated devices for secondary to primary side feedback in AC-to-DC power supplies and DC-to-DC converters. These optical devices save board space and replace bulky transformer secondary feedback circuits. The LIA135 and LIA136 combination of features are optimal for use in isolated power supply design as the bias current for the shunt regulators does not pass through the LED. This eliminates bias-related optical current, providing the user with the dynamic range (1000:1). The optocoupler portions of the LIA135 and LIA136 comprise of infrared LEDs that are optically coupled to NPN phototransistors. The optocouplers' current transfer ratio is between 500% and 2,000%. The LIA136 offers enhanced performance characteristics and an extended operational temperature range to 110C. These devices are available in DIP and surface mount (SMT) packages, and have the following approvals: UL Recognized Component: File # E76270, CSA Certified Component: Certificate # 1305490 The LIA135 and LIA136 are available in production quantities. OEM pricing is $0.49 and $0.54 respectively in quantities of 25KU.

IXYS Introduces 20A Voltage-Controlled Optically Isolated AC Power Switch Utilizing Dual-Power SCR Outputs

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Inc. announced the availability of the CPC44055ST 20A(rms), (5A free-air), AC Power Switch. The voltage-controlled CPC44055ST which features zero-cross turn-on circuitry, is specified with an 800V peak blocking voltage and is the latest addition to the SuperSIP family. Previously, IXYS ICD released the CPC40055ST AC Power Switch which is a current-controlled device with similar specifications. Tightly controlled zero-cross circuitry ensures low noise switching of AC loads by minimizing the generation of transients. The CPC44055ST’s optically coupled input and output circuits provide exceptional noise immunity and 2500V(rms) of isolation between the control input and the output. As a result, the CPC44055ST is well suited for industrial environments where electromagnetic interference would disrupt the operation of plant facility communications and control systems. The unique SuperSIP package pioneered by IXYS ICD enables Solid State Relays to achieve the highest load current available in any similarly sized package and is pin-to-pin compatible with the industry standard AC Output Module. This package features a unique process in which the silicon chips are soft-soldered onto a ceramic Direct Copper Bond (DCB) substrate instead of the traditional copper lead frame. The DCB ceramic, the same substrate used in high power modules, provides not only 2500V(rms) of input-to-output isolation but also very low thermal impedance (0.35 C/W). This device can be used with a heatsink to achieve 20A(rms) output current or without a heatsink to achieve 5A(rms). The CPC44055ST requires only 5V of input control voltage to operate. Additionally, the SuperSIP package meets UL508 (Industrial Controls) pin-to-pin distance requirements. Typical applications include AC motors up to 1/2 HP, AC line power control, high intensity lighting, UPS, Appliances and factory automation.

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division Offers Automotive Grade 14A Gate Driver Integrated Circuits

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD) Inc. announced that the IXD_614SI family has been added to the growing number of IXYS ICD low side gate driver integrated circuits that are AEC Q100 (automotive-grade) qualified. With both outputs and inputs rated to 35V, the IXD_614SI family is well suited for automotive applications. IXD_614SI outputs are capable of sourcing and sinking 14A of peak current with rise and fall times of less than 25ns. The IXD_614SI family has an AEC Q100 Grade 1 -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C ambient operating temperature range. These gate drivers are extremely robust, capable of withstanding negative voltage spikes of greater than 5V on the inputs, and are virtually immune to latch-up. The IXD_614SI devices are available in the thermally enhanced 8-lead power SOIC package. The IXDD614SI is configured as an inverting driver with an enable, the IXDI614SI is configured as an inverting driver, and the IXDN614SI is configured as a non-inverting driver. The IXD_614SI drivers' 14A/35V power output makes them well suited for driving high current IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs. Typical automotive applications include switched-mode power supplies used in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, motor drives and traction inverters. IXYS ICD also offers lower current AEC Q100 qualified low side gate drivers. The IXD_609SI is a single 9A gate driver, and the IXD_604SI is a dual 4A gate driver.
