ACPL-36JV optocoupler

Avago Technologies announced a new compact, extended temperature, automotive grade optocoupler for use in hybrid electronic vehicles. Avago's ACPL-36JV 2.5A optocoupler incorporates an integrated desaturation detection and fault status feedback system while offering superior performance over a wide operating temperature range from -40C to +105C. The ACPL-36JV is suitable for use with isolated IGBT/power MOSFET gate drives, industrial inverters, AC and brushless DC motor drives, and uninterruptable power supplies.

Avago's ACPL-36JV, which is part of its R?Coupler family, provides reinforced insulation and reliability that delivers safe signal isolation which is critical in automotive and high temperature industrial applications. The low-power ACPL-36JV optocoupler has been designed with under voltage lock-out protection, high common mode rejection (CMR) performance and high speed response to improve efficiency. Additionally, the ACPL-36JV has been qualified to automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 2 semiconductor requirements for use in automotive applications.

The ACPL-36JV optocoupler is available in a 16-lead small outline (SO-16) surface mount package and is compliant to industrial safety standards IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-5, UL 1577 and CSA.

The optocoupler drives IGBTs up to IC = 150A and VCE = 1200V and handles extended operating temperature of -40C to 105C. The device also features maximum switching speed of 50ns, soft IGBT turn-off and 15kV/?s minimum CMR at VCM = 1500V. The ACPL-36JV is qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 2 Test Guidelines.

Avago's ACPL-36JV automotive 2.5A optocouplers are priced at $3.61 in 10,000-piece quantities, and are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
