Automotive R²Coupler® Smart Gate Drive Optocoupler

Currently Viewing:

The Broadcom ACPL-31JT is an automotive grade 2.5A smart gate drive optocoupler device featuring fast propagation delay with excellent timing skew performance. The device features a full set of fail-safe MOSFET diagnostics, protection and fault reporting. This full-featured and easy-to-implement IGBT gate drive optocoupler comes in a compact, surface-mountable SO-16 package. The ACPL-31JT is designed for driving MOSFETs used in AC-DC and DC-DC converters of electric vehicle (EV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) applications.

The device satisfies automotive AEC-Q100 semiconductor requirements. Broadcom R²Coupler® isolation products provide the reinforced insulation and reliability needed for critical automotive and high temperature industrial applications.
