High-speed, dual-supply voltage optocoupler range expands

Avago Technologies ia launching the latest addition to its line of high-speed digital CMOS optocouplers. At 25MBd, the new ACPL-772L is claimed to be the industry's fastest, dual-supply voltage (3.3V and 5V) optocoupler in a DIP-8 package. With its unprecedented speed and the ability to support up to 5kV in isolation voltage protection, the ACPL-772L is excellent for not only high-speed data-line transmission applications, but also those operating at higher voltages, such as test and measurement systems.

The new ACPL-772L supports a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +105 degrees C and offers a low pulse-width distortion of 6ns maximum, which helps to maintain high data integrity over longer distances. The device exhibits a high common-mode rejection of 10kV/microsecond minimum, with 40ns maximum propagation delay and 20ns maximum propagation delay skew.

As the ACPL-772L can operate on dual supply voltages, designers of digital fieldbus (Devicenet or Profibus, for example) and test and measurement applications can be flexible in selecting supply voltages, reducing level-shifting circuitry and lowering power consumption. The ACPL-772L's approval in the following widely accepted international safety standards is pending: UL1577, CSA File CA88324 (Notice#5), and IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2.

Both products are available now through Avago Technologies' direct sales channels and worldwide distribution partners.

Avago will demonstrate its new products at booth #243 located in Hall A4 at Electronica in Munich from 14-17 November 2006
