IXYS have combined to bring OptoMOS technology, reliability and compact size to a new family of high power Solid State Relays.
As part of this family, the CPC1908 single-pole normally open Solid State Power Relay is rated for up to 8.5 A(rms) continuous load current with a 5°C/W heat sink. The CPC1908 employs optically coupled MOSFET technology to provide 2500 Vrms of input to output isolation. The optically coupled outputs, that use patented OptoMOS architecture, are controlled by a highly...

Clare and IXYS have combined to bring OptoMOS technology, reliability and compact size to a new family of high power solid state relays. As part of that family, the CPC1906 is a single-pole, normally open (1-Form-A) solid state relays. As part of that family, the CPC1906 employs optically coupled MOSFET technology to provide 2500 V RMS of input to output isolation. The efficient MOSFET switches and photovoltaic die use Clare's patented OptoMOS architecture while the output is controlled by a...

The CPC7691 is a member of Clare’s third-generation Line Card Access Switch (LCAS) family. This monolithic 4-pole solid state switch is available in a 16-pin SOIC package. It provides the necessary functions to replace the 2-Form-C electromechanical ringing relay and it’s associated snubber circuitry on traditional analog line cards or contemporary integrated voice and data (IVD) line cards found in Central Office (CO), Access, and PBX equipment. Because this device contains solid...
