When developing a reliable, yet cost-effective motor control system, designers require optocouplers that provide more protection, efficiency and ability to operate in noisy environments. Avago's highly integrated ACPL-332J and -331J intelligent gate drivers improve precision and efficiency of motor inverters by featuring Active Miller Clamp, integrated Vce desaturation detection, under voltage lockout protection, built-in IGBT shut down, and isolated open collector fault feedback. Active Miller clamping eliminates the need for a negative gate drive, saving negative power supply and PCB space. Additionally, Avago's new gate drive optocouplers enjoy an industry-best CMR which ensures reliable operation under noisy environments.
The ACPL-332J and -331J are CSA approved. Approvals in the following widely accepted international safety standards are pending: UL1577 and IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2.
The ACPL-332J is priced at $3.24 in 10,000 piece quantities. The ACPL-331J is priced at $2.56 in 10,000 piece quantities. The product is available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
