1MBd 660nm Versatile Link Optical Receiver

Currently Viewing:

The Broadcom HFBR-2532ETZ is a 1MBd Versatile Link™ optical receiver component supporting a 660nm LED light source. The device incorporates a monolithic dc coupled, digital IC receiver with an open collector Schottky output transistor.  The device is designed to pair with the Broadcom HFBR-1532ETZ transmitter, providing robust point-to-point data communication. Immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI), the HFBR-1532ETZ and HFBR-2532ETZ pair is ideal for use in providing mission-critical system control and status communications for industrial communications and control networks.
