New 1500V PhotoMOS® relay in miniature DIP5 package from Panasonic targets industrial BMS

Delivers increased creepage & clearance, stable on-resistance over lifetime, and unlimited switching cycles

The new PhotoMOS® HE relay series from Panasonic Industry Europe offers 5kV I/O isolation and an increased clearance and creepage distance on output side, plus miniature 1-Form-A DIP5 packaging, making it particularly suitable as the switching solution for Battery Management Systems (BMS) in storage systems, charging stations, and numerous other high voltage measurement and infrastructure control applications.

Industrial BMS applications demand reliability and consistent performance over the product lifespan”, says Michael Renner, Product Manager at Panasonic Industry Europe. “These new devices extend the load voltage of Panasonic’s PhotoMOS® relay family and improve ruggedness and stability.”

Rated at 1,500V/20mA, new AQV258H5 HE series PhotoMOS® relays have a MOSFET output and enjoy an almost unlimited lifetime if used according to the specifications. On-resistance remains stable throughout the entire lifetime – and AQV258H5 HE series PhotoMOS® relays – unlike electromechanical devices – are unaffected by vibration, a significant benefit in many industrial applications.

New PhotoMOS® series AQV258H5 relays also feature a low control current and low leakage current and produce no switching noise. Devices come with 5 pins to accomodate different creepage and clearance requirements, but a 6 pin version is also available.Both types are offered with through-hole or surface-mount terminations.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.
