Automotive-grade digital optocouplers feature high speed, low power

San Jose, Calif.—Avago Technologies has announced a pair of automotive-grade high speed, low power, digital CMOS optocouplers for use in Hybrid Electric Vehicles.

The ACPL-M71T single channel high speed 15MBd and ACPL-M72T low power LED drive optocouplers are the latest additions to Avago's R2Coupler digital family. Both of these high temperature, low power optocouplers, which are available in small outline IC-5 (SOIC-5) packages, are intended for use in controller area network bus (CANBus) interfaces and microcontroller interfaces applications.

Avago's ACPL-M71T and ACPL-M72T R2Couplers incorporate the latest CMOS IC technology to provide reinforced insulation and reliability that delivers the level of safe signal isolation that is critical in automotive and high temperature industrial applications.

Key specifications include electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance of 4kV Human Body Model (HBM) and 400V Machine Model (MM) to meet the design requirements of automotive electrical systems. Additionally, these digital optocouplers are qualified to the automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 1 component stress test guidelines and are manufactured under TS16949 automotive quality standards.

In addition, they feature 5-volt CMOS compatibility; 40 kV/µs Common-Mode Rejection at Vcm = 1000 V (typical); a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 125°C; and low propagation delay of 26 ns@ IF = 10 mA (typical) for the ACPL-M71T and 60 ns@ IF = 4 mA (typical) for the ACPL-M72T.

Both the ACPL-M71T and ACPL-M72T use a proprietary LED technology with lower driving current and lower power consumption for high speed 15MBd and low speed digital applications.

Pricing: Starts at $2.43 each in minimum quantities of 1,000 and exclusive pricing is available for mass production volumes.
Availability: Samples and production quantities.
