OLC449

Radiation-Tolerant Phototransistor Non-Hermetic Surface-Mount Optocoupler


The OLC449 can be used for large satellite constellation applications that require optical isolation in radiation environments such as gamma, neutron, and proton radiation with a high CTR and low saturation VCE. Each optocoupler consists of an LED and N-P-N silicon phototransistor that is electrically isolated, but optically coupled inside a non-hermetic six-pin Leadless Chip Carrier (LCC) package.

Electrical parameters are similar to the JEDEC registered 4N49 optocoupler, but with a higher CTR and better CTR degradation characteristics due to radiation exposure.

The hermetic surface mount variant of the OLC449 optocoupler is available as the OLS449, both in a non-screened catalog version as well as a high-reliability screened version.

The OLC449 is designed for a low LED operating current while providing excellent radiation tolerance margins.
