10MBd Dual-channel Bi-directional, Extended Temperature Optcoupler

Currently Viewing:

The Broadcom ACFL-6212U is an industrial grade, dual-channel optocoupler device designed for bi-directional digital communications. The device has two optocoupler channels internally aligned 180 degrees of each other, providing optimum chip pin-out configuration for bi-directional Tx/Rx data communication design and board layout. The two channels are electrically independent and galvanically isolated, providing an ideal isolated bi-directional system communication interface.

The device is optimized for high speed systems supporting data rates up to 10 MBd and packaged in a compact SSO-12 package comparable to the SSO-8 footprint.
