Avago Technologies Advances Its Gate Drive Optocoupler Portfolio

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 13, 2007— Avago Technologies today announced the latest addition to its intelligent gate drive optocoupler product family. The company is a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications. Avago's new ACPL-332J and -331J 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.

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.
