High Speed Optocoupler

Currently Viewing:

The ACPL-K453 is a single-channel transistor optocoupler in an eight lead miniature footprint.

This diode-transistor optocoupler uses an insulating layer between the light emitting diode and an integrated photo detector to provide electrical insulation between input and output. Separate connections for the photodiode bias and output transistor collector increase the speed up to a hundred times over that of a conventional photo-transistor coupler by reducing the base-collector capacitance.

The ACPL-K453 has a common mode transient immunity of 15,000 V/μs minimum at VCM = 1500 V guaranteed.

  • Line Receivers - High common mode transient
    immunity (>15000 V/μs) and low input-output
    capacitance (0.5 pF).
  • High Speed Logic Ground Isolation - TTL/TTL, TTL/
  • Replace Slow Phototransistor Optocouplers
  •  Replace Pulse Transformers - Save board space and weight
  • Analog Signal Ground Isolation - Integrated photon
    detector provides improved linearity over
    phototransistor type.
