NVE Extends Isolation Lead with Seven Kilovolt Isolators 

NVE Corporation, a leader in spintronic giant magnetoresistance (GMR) isolation technology announced that its line of the world’s highest isolation isolators have been upgraded with even higher isolation. The company’s IL700V-Series isolators have been upgraded from six kilovolts to a remarkable seven kilovolts RMS (9.9 kilovolts peak) with an improved process. 

A unique ceramic/polymer composite isolation barrier also provides the industry’s best barrier resistance and virtually unlimited life. The isolators are certified under the stringent new VDE 0884-17 standard, UL1577 registered, and ATEX / IECEx certified for IS-to-IS intrinsically safe applications.

NVE’s revolutionary patented spintronic giant magnetoresistance (GMR) isolation technology provides best-in-class performance with no radio-frequency carriers or refresh clocks for virtually no radiated emissions, says the company. The 16-pin SOIC package is the standard wide-body size, but unlike other similarly-sized packages, it has true eight-millimeter creepage under IEC 60601. The isolators have a 125 °C extended temperature range and are designed to provide a full range of configurations. The three standard four-channel configurations are available now, with the two- and five-channel versions coming soon.

Based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, 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. For more info, see www.nve.com
