Ultra Low Power 10MBd Digital CMOS Optocoupler

Currently Viewing:

The Broadcom ACPL-M61L (single-channel, SO-5 package) optocoupler is part of the Broadcom ultra low power ACPL-x6xL digital optocouplers that combine an AlGaAs light emitting diode and an integrated high gain photo detector addresses the low power need. The optocoupler consumes extremely low power, at maximum 1.3mA IDD per channel across temperature. The forward current is as low as 1.6mA and thus allows direct current drive by most microprocessors.

An internal Faraday shield provides a guaranteed common mode transient immunity specification of 20 kV/µs. Maximum AC and DC circuit isolation is achieved while maintaining TTL/CMOS compatibility.

The optocouplers CMOS outputs are slew-rate controlled and is designed to allow the rise and fall time to be controlled over a wide load capacitance range.

The ACPL-x6xL series operates from both 3.3 V and 5 V supply voltages with guaranteed AC and DC performance from –40°C to +105°C.

These low-power optocouplers are suitable for high speed logic interface applications.
