Avago Technologies Expands Family of Gate Drive Optocouplers for Industrial Inverters and Power Management Applications
New Easy to Install Optocouplers Offers Advanced Fault Protection Features to Provide Space and Cost Savings
SAN JOSE, Calif., August 25, 2008 -- Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today 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 new optocouplers provide space and cost savings in designs, and meets minimum 8 mm creepage and clearance requirements.
When developing a reliable, yet cost-effective motor control system, designers require optocouplers that provide more protection, efficiency and the ability to operate in noisy environments. Avago's highly integrated 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 printed circuit board space. Moreover, Avago's new gate drive optocouplers offer superior CMR performance and a wide operating temperature range.
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 and Availability
Based on 10,000 piece quantities, the ACPL-333J, which is available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners, is priced at $3.38 each. The ACPL-330J is priced at $2.81 each and will be available through Avago's sales and distribution partners beginning September 30.
