Precautions for Safe Use

  1. Do not apply overvoltages or overcurrents to the input or output circuits of the product. The product may fail or ignite.
  2. Perform soldering and wiring correctly according to specified soldering conditions. Using a product with incomplete soldering may cause overheating when power is applied, possibly resulting in burning.

Precautions for Correct Use


You must consider derating to achieve the required system reliability.
To use a product with high reliability, consider derating the maximum ratings and recommended operating conditions, and allow sufficient leeway in designs based on testing operation in the actual application under the actual operating conditions whenever possible.

  1. Maximum Ratings
    The maximum ratings must never be exceeded even instantaneously. This applies individually to each of the ratings. If any of the maximum ratings is exceeded, the internal parts of the product may deteriorate or the chip may be destroyed. To ensure high reliability in using a product, sufficiently derate the maximum voltage, current, and temperature ratings when designing the application.
  2. Recommended Operating Conditions
    The recommended operating conditions are to ensure that the product turns ON and OFF reliably. To ensure high reliability in using a product, consider the recommended operating conditions when you design the application.
  3. Fail-safe Design
    We recommend that you implement fail-safe measures in the design of the application if the failure of, deterioration of characteristics in, or functional errors in the product will have a serious affect on the safe operation of the system.
Countermeasures for static electricity

There is a risk of damage to internal elements and impairment of functionality if static electricity is discharged to the pins due to product handling or otherwise.
Reduce the generation of static electricity as much as possible, and implement appropriate measures to prevent charge accumulation near the product.

Typical Product Driving Circuit Examples

The LED input side of the MOS FET is driven by current. If applying a Voltage, add resistance in series with the circuit, so the specified current is applied.
This resistance is referred as "LED current limiting resistance".

  • C-MOS
  • Transistor
  • To ensure that the product operates correctly, usethe following formula to calculate the limiting resistance, and design the circuit accordingly.

    • To set the value of IF(ON), check the trigger LED current and recommended operation LED forward current indicated in the catalogue for each model, and set a high value with leeway.
  • To ensure that the product resetsreliably, calculate the reset voltage using the formula below, and control so that the voltage is lower than this value.

    • For the IF(OFF) value, set a value that is lower with leeway than the reset LED forward current indicated for each model in the catalogue.
  • If the drive transistor has alarge leakage current that may cause malfunctioning, add a bleeder resistance.
Protection from Surge Voltage on the Input Pins
  • If any reversed surge voltage is imposed on the input pins, insert a diode in parallel with the input pins as shown in the following circuit diagram and do not impose a reversed voltage of 3 V or higher.

    Surge Voltage Protection Circuit Example
Protection from Spike Voltage on the Output Pins
  • If there is an inductive load or other condition that will cause overvoltage that exceeds the absolute maximum rating between the output pins, connect a protective circuit to limit the overvoltage.

    Spike Voltage Protection Circuit Example
Load Connection
  1. Do not short-circuit the input and output pins while the product is operating or it may malfunction.
  2. Do not connect the input and output in reverse.
  3. Do not construct a circuit so that overcurrent and burning occur if the 4, 5 and 6 pins are short-circuited.
  1. When transportation and installing the product, do not drop the product or subject it to abnormal vibration or shock. It may cause deterioration of product characteristics, malfunc- tion or failure.
  2. Avoid transportation in the following conditions as it may cause failure or deterioration of characteristics.

    • Circumstance subject to water or oil.
    • Circumstance subject to high temperature or high humidity.
    • Circumstance where the temperature changes radically and condensation occurs.
    • State the product is not packed.
Cleaning Flux from the products
  1. Clean flux from the product so that there will be no residue of reactive ions, such as sodium or chlorine.
    Some organic solvents will react with water to produce hydrogen chloride or other corrosive gases, which may cause deterioration of the products.
  2. When washing off the flux with water, make sure that there will be no residue of reactive ions, particularly sodium or chlorine.
  3. During water washing, do not scrub the marks on the surface of the product with a brush or your hand while there is clean- ing liquid on the product. The marks may come off.
  4. Clean the flux from the products with the chemical action of the solvent for submersed cleaning, shower cleaning, or steam cleaning. To minimize the effect on the products, do not place the product in the solvent or steam for more than 1 minute at a temperature of 50°C.
  5. If you use ultrasonic cleaning, keep the time short. If the cleaning time is too long, the sealing characteristics of the molded resin and frame materials may deteriorate.
    The recommended basic conditions are given below.

    < Recommended Conditions for Ultrasonic Cleaning >
    • Frequency: 27 to 29 kHz
    • Ultrasonic wave output: 300 W max. (0.25 W/cm2 max.)
    • Cleaning time: 30 s max.

    Also, suspend the products in the cleaning solution so that the product and PCB do not come into direct contact with the ultra- sonic transducer.

  6. Dry thoroughly after washing so that there is no residue of washing liquid.
Solder Mounting

Perform solder mounting under the following recommended conditions to prevent the temperature of the MOS FET Relays from rising.

(Lead-free solder) SnAgCu recommended profile

< Manual Soldering ∗Once Only > : Perform manual soldering at 260°C for 10 s or less.

Storage Conditions
  1. Store the products where they will not be subjected to water leaks or direct sunlight.
  2. When transporting or storing the product, observe all precautions on the packaging boxes.
  3. Keep the storage location at normal temperature, normal humidity, and normal pressure. Guidelines for the tempera- ture and humidity are 5 to 35°C and a relative humidity of 45% to 75%.
  4. Do not store the product in locations that are subject to corro- sive gases, such as hydrogen sulfide gas, or to salt spray, and do not store them where there is visually apparent dust, iron powder or dirt.
  5. Store the product in a location that has a relatively stable temperature. Radical changes in temperature during storage will cause condensation, which may oxidize or corrode the leads and interfere with solder wetting.
  6. If you remove products from the packages and then store them again, use storage containers that have measures to prevent static electricity.
  7. Do not under any circumstances apply any force to the prod- ucts that would deform or alter them in any way.
  8. This product is warranted for one year from the date of pur- chase or the date of delivery to the specified location.
    If the products are stored for more than about one year under normal conditions, we recommend that you confirm solder- ability before you use the products.
Usage Conditions
< Mounting >

Do not install the product with oil or metal powder. This may cause insulation deterioration.

< Temperature >

The electrical characteristics of the products are limited by the application temperature.
If you use them at temperatures outside of the operating temperature range, the electrical characteristics of the products will not be achieved and the products may deteriorate. For that reason, you must determine the temperature characteristics in advance and apply derating* to the design of the application. (*Derating reduces stress.) Consider derating in the operating temperature conditions and apply the recommended operating temperature as a guideline.

< Humidity >

If the products are used for a long period of time at high humidity, humidity will penetrate the products and the internal chips may deteriorate or fail. In systems with high signal source impedance, leaks in the board or leaks between the leads of the products can cause malfunctions. If these are issues, consider applying humidity-resistant processing to the surfaces of the products. On the other hand, at low humidity, damage from the discharge of static electricity becomes a problem. Low humidity may cause damage due to electrostatic discharge. Unless moisture proofing is implemented, use within a relative humidity range of 40 to 60%.

< Replace >

Be sure to turn off the power when replacing parts. There is a risk of electric shock.

< Disposal >

This product uses GaAs (Gallium arsenide). Because the powder and substance are harmful to the human body, do not destroy, cut, crush or disassemble chemically.

Considerations when handling Products
< Moisture proof package, MSL5 >

Surface mount products may have a crack when thermal stress is applied during surface mount assembly after they absorb atmospheric moisture. Therefore, please observe the following precautions.

  1. This moisture proof bag may be stored unopened within 12 months at the following conditions.
    Temperature: 5°C to 30°C
    Humidity: 90% (Max.)
  2. After opening the moisture proof bag, the devices should be assembled within 48 hours in an environment of 5°C to 30°C / 60%RH or below.
  3. If upon opening, the moisture indicator card shows humidity 30% or above (Color of indication changes to pink) or the expiration date has passed, the devices should be baked in taping with reel. After baking, use the baked devices within 48 hours, but perform baking only once.
    Baking conditions: 120±5°C. For 72 hours.
    Expiration date: 12 months from sealing date, which is imprinted on the label affixed.
  4. Repeated baking can cause the peeling strength of the tap- ing to change, then leads to trouble in mounting. Further- more, prevent the devices from being destructed against static electricity for baking of it.
  5. If the packing material of laminate would be broken the her- meticity would deteriorate.
    Therefore, do not throw or drop the packed devices.
  6. Tape-cut products are packaged without humidity resistance. Use manual soldering to mount them. (MSL not supported)
