Solid State Relay comes in miniature 4-pin package.

Press Release Summary:

Targeting low voltage and security applications, miniature 30 V, 1-Form-A (single pole, normally open) CPC1020N features 1.2 Arms of current handling in combination with 0.25 Ohms max on-resistance. It employs optically coupled MOSFET technology to provide 1,500 Vrms of input-to-output isolation, and can be driven directly from any control IC, making it suited for automated power control. Component is UL Recognized, meets EN/IEC 60950-1 requirements, and is CSA Certified.

Original Press Release:

Clare Introduces Their First 30V High-Efficiency Miniature Solid State Relay in a 4-Pin Package!

The CPC1020N Solid State Relay has Clare's Highest Current, Lowest On-Resistance combination in a 4-Pin Package, Targeting Low Voltage and Security Applications

January 15, 2009- Beverly, Massachusetts, USA, Clare, Inc., an IXYS company (NASDAQ: IXYS - News) and world leader in the design and manufacture of solid-state relays, announced the availability of their first miniature 30V, 4-pin SOP, 1-Form-A (Single Pole, Normally Open) Solid State Relay (SSR). The CPC1020N employs optically coupled MOSFET technology to provide 1500Vrms of input-to-output isolation and is added to Clare's robust SSR product offering.

The CPC1020N features 1.2Arms of current handling, in combination with only 0.25 Ohms of maximum on-resistance, making it an excellent design choice for applications demanding low impedance switching. The 20% board space savings, over the competition's larger 4-Pin SOP, specifically targets security systems and other low-voltage, high current switching applications. This semiconductor based relay can be driven directly from any control IC, and thus is ideal for automated power control.

The 30V CPC1020N has UL Recognized Component File # E76270, meets EN/IEC 60950-1 requirements, and has CSA Certified Component: Certificate # 1172007.

The small size of this SSR and its high efficiency make it ideal for portable instruments, remote control applications, controlling valves and actuators in automation and industrial systems; as well as low voltage lighting applications, especially LED based lighting. Furthermore, it can be used to reduce the power drain in systems that are on standby mode by cutting off the DC power when necessary, thus reducing the power consumption of systems in standby or "off" mode

Pricing and Availability

The CPC1020N, 30V 1-Form-A, normally open, SSR is in full production with a leadtime of 4 weeks.
For OEM quantities of 25KU, CPC1020N pricing is $1.04.
