Avago Technologies has rolled 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 /power MOSFET gate drives, AC and brushless DC motor drives, industrial inverters and UPS.

Avago's ACPL-333J and ACPL-330J, which offer 2.5A and 1.5A output current respectively, are said to be 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 8mm 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, undervoltage lockout protection, soft shutdown, 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.

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

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