Avago expands gate drive optocoupler line

San Jose, Calif.—Avago Technologies announced the latest additions to its intelligent gate drive optocoupler product family.

Avago's ACPL-333J and ACPL-330J series of high-speed IGBT optocouplers are easy to implement in industrial inverter and power management applications, such as isolated IGBT/power MOSFET gate drives, AC and brushless DC motor drives, industrial inverters and uninterruptible power supplies.

Avago's ACPL-333J and ACPL-330J, which offer 2.5 and 1.5 amp output current respectively, are advanced high-speed, easy-to-use intelligent gate drivers that help to make IGBT fault protection compact and affordable. Available in a stretched outline-16 (SO-16) package, these optocouplers provide space and cost savings in designs, and meets minimum 8 mm creepage and clearance requirements.

Avago's ACPL-333J and ACPL-330J intelligent gate drivers help to improve precision and efficiency of motor inverters by featuring Active Miller Clamp, integrated Vce desaturation detection, under voltage lockout protection, soft shut down, isolated fault feedback and automatic fault reset. Active Miller clamping eliminates the need for a negative gate drive, saving negative power supply and PCB space.

The ACPL-333J is CSA, UL1577 and IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2 approved. The ACPL-330J is pending approval for CSA, UL1577 and IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2.

Pricing: Based on 10,000-piece quantities, the ACPL-333J is $3.38, and the ACPL-330J, $2.81 each.

Availability: The ACPL-333J is available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners; the ACPL-330J will be available beginning September 30.
