Industrial Plastic Optocouplers
As one of the leaders in galvanic isolation optocoupler technology, Broadcom delivers optocouplers that are designed and manufactured to meet stringent power isolation requirements of industrial applications along with the industry's leading common mode rejection (CMR) of up to 50kV/µs.
In an industrial environment where high voltages, magnetic fields and noise are commonly present, reliability is critical to avoid downtime and ensure data accuracy. In this environment circuit designers use galvanic isolation optocouplers to insulate high voltages and isolate unwanted signals.

These isolated IGBT and MOSFET drivers are ideal for use in a wide range of motor control and power conversion applications where the microcontroller needs to be isolated and protected from high voltages.
