Topic: OptoMOS Relay question (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I don't have any experience with OptoMOS, and the datasheet isn't clear...
maybe somebody can answer my question?

Is this possible with OptoMOS?  i.e. one of the "load" terminals of the OptoMOS is not connected to GND, but wired like this.

I'm trying to see if an OptoMOS will be a suitable substitute here, instead of an SPST mechanical Relay.


Never mind. It will work, but the On resistance of the OptoMos is "too much" (10 ohm) for my specific application. I'll be using 16 of these, and that's 160ohm minimum at least, which will cause a big cumulative error in this analog circuit ... back to using Reed Relays, only 0.16 ohm On resistance.
