New MOSFET relays from Omron fit tight spaces, solve low-power sensing challenges

18 DECEMBER 2014

Equipment designers dealing with tight space constraints or low-strength signals in sensing applications can now overcome these challenges using new G3VM MOSFET relays

announced by Omron Electronic Components Europe. The two families being added to the Omron G3VM line-up are a range of tiny VSON devices measuring 2.45mm × 1.45mm × 1.30mm, and ultra-sensitive relays that can be triggered by a signal of just 0.2mA. Six new relays are offered in the VSON package, which has little more than half the footprint of competing USOP devices. The package features large, efficient bottom-side contacts, with edge metallisation allowing easier solder-joint inspection. Rated load voltages range from 20V in G3VM-21UR1/10/11 to 100V in the G3VM-101UR. 40V, 50V, 60V, 75V and 80V ratings are also available, and rated continuous load current is from 100mA to 1A. On-resistance down to 0.18Ω helps minimise power losses, and fast switching times allow use with high-frequency signals in various test & measurement, telecom and wireless applications, as well as portable consumer devices such as cameras. Omron is to launch a further six VSON devices Spring 2015.
