    Breakdown Voltage Breakdown voltage (also referred to as dielectric strength) and lightning surge breakdown voltage are two engineering terms used to rate the electrical robustness of a product. Both terms are used in reference to insulation resistance, describing the maximum voltage that a product can withstand for a certain period of time before its properties are permanently changed.  Hence, it is a measurement of the product’s robustness to abnormal voltage conditions.

    Panasonic's Refined Radio Frequency Immense advancements in the semiconductor market have had numerous effects on modern electronics, including rising clock rates, extended functionality of devices, and decreasing size of electronic products. Aside from including these features, many applications require switches offering galvanic separation of input and output.   For application purposes, Panasonic uses optocouplers and MOSFETS, or analog CMOS switches.

    A Challenge Of Circuit Protection Small size, reliability, and low power consumption are requirements for components used to switch signal outputs in sensors, control units, or on measurement cards. An important function is the galvanic isolation of sensitive electronics from possible disturbances on the output side, e.g. voltage peaks or overcurrents, which can arise due to short circuits or improper use. The new short circuit protected PhotoMOS family from Panasonic is optimally prepared to meet these challenges.
