High Voltage Optocoupler for Space Applications

The 100SW1502 is a high-voltage optocoupler that was selected for the PIMS, SUDA and MASPEX instruments on NASA’s Europa Clipper Mission to orbit Jupiter.  It was developed to overcome the challenging space environment damaging other devices. Our 10.5 KV, radiation-tolerant optocouplers incorporate a 15KV glass passivated diode, high-current redundant  LED array, a compliant package for thermal tolerance, 15KV internal isolation, Internal ESD protection and a .5-1% current transfer.  The 100SW1602 has more features.
