Transistors and solid state switches.

Avago Technologies expanded its solid state relay (MOSFET) family of opto-isolation products with the ASSR-301C/302C and ASSR-401C/402C. With input drive as low as 2 mA and fast switching speeds of <0.5 ms, these relays are suited for sensing and multiplexing applications such as test and measurement and data acquisition systems, where low power consumption and high system throughput are essential.

The solid state relays provide low off-state capacitance of <15 pF for good signal isolation and low on-resistance for less insertion loss. Low off-state leakage of <10 nA reduces system measurement errors. The company's expanded ASSR Series feature qualified performance across a wide temperature range of -40[degrees]C to 85[degrees]C, with high transient immunity >1 kV/[micro]s and what is said to be an industry high of 3.75 kV in insulation protection in a miniature SO4 package. The ASSR-301C and ASSR-401C are single channel, 1 Form A relays that come in an S04 package; the ASSR-302C and ASSR-402C are dual channel, 2 Form A relays that come in a standard DIP8 footprint

The ASSR-301C is priced at $1.97 each, and ASSR-302C is $3.60 each in 1,000-piece quantities. The ASSR-401C is priced at $1.97 each, and ASSR-402C is $3.60 each in 1,000-piece quantities.

Omron Electronic Components' G3VM-21LR and 41LR Series SSOP MOSFET relays measure 1.8 mm (H) x 2 mm (W) x 3.8 mm (L) and are said to offer designers a board space savings of 67 percent when compared to a standard SOP package. Their solid-state, high reliability construction provides hundreds of millions of operations with low power consumption. The MOSFET chip is available in a 1-Form-A contact configuration, provides fast turn-On and turn-Off times in the microsecond range, and it is capable of handling both AC and DC loads.

On-resistance as low as 1[ohm] and Off-state capacitance beginning as low as 1 pF ensures accuracy. This series also offers what is said to be the lowest available range of C x R values in the industry, starting at 2.5 pF*[ohm]. These features make these MOSFET relays appropriate for medical imaging applications such as CT, MRI and ultrasound equipment. In quantities of 10,000 pieces, the cost ranges from $6.79 to $7.10, depending on the model.
