Everlight Electronics introduces two new 6-Pin SDIP optocouplers for space constraint industrial applications

Everlight Electronics announces the introduction of two new single channel 6-pin SDIP 1Mbit/s and 10Mbit/s transistor output optocouplers. With merely half the dimensions of comparable 8-Pin 6N13X devices, they are both suited for preferential use in space constraint industrial applications
Both ELS511 and ELS611 are SMD devices in a small outline 6-pin SDIP package. The ELS511 series devices each consist of an infrared emitting diode, optically coupled to a high speed photo detector transistor. A separate connection for the photodiode bias and output-transistor collector increase the speed by several orders of magnitude over conventional phototransistor couplers by reducing the base-collector capacitance of the input transistor. The ELS611 series devices consist of an infrared emitting diode optically coupled to a high speed integrated photo detector logic gate with a storable output.
Their dimensions of 9.7*4.58*3.38mm, half of those of a 6N13X series (8-Pin), greatly eases the use in designs with limited PCB area to make them perfect for space constraint industrial applications like high speed ground isolation.
