Ensure Safe System Operation With Certified Isolator Devices White Paper

Isolation components such as optocouplers that are used in applications that have user safety issues as a key aspect must not fail under continuous high-working-voltage bias conditions. Safety hazards exist and human life is at risk when such insulation fails and the high voltages come in contact with the user. To prevent such occurrences, continuous working voltage ratings and test methodologies are regulated by international component standards and equipment safety standards. By Harold Tisbe, Avago Technologies.

Calculate The LED Lifetime Performance In Optocouplers To Predict Reliability White Paper

Optocouplers are used extensively for high-voltage isolation and electrical noise rejection – two essential requirements for transmitting correct information between different voltage potentials within an electrical system. Such systems must be able to operate reliably for many years when used in industrial, medical, renewable energy environments, and any other system that has a long expected operating lifetime. By Foo Chwan Jye of Avago Technologies.

Building Safe And Reliable Electrical Systems With Optocouplers White Paper

Electrical systems, no matter what their purpose, share three primary requirements: reliable, safe, and long life operation. To ensure safe operation, users must be double insulated from any dangerous high voltages the equipment employs. To ensure reliable and long life operation, control electronics must also be protected from hazards such as electromagnetic interference and voltage spikes. Avago’s optocouplers provide safety and protection unmatched by any other isolation technology.

Optimizing High-Voltage Common Mode Rejection Performance Of The ACPL-x6xL Ultra-Low Power Optocouplers White Paper

The ACPL-x6xL products are optically coupled ultra-low power 10 MBd digital CMOS optocouplers that operate with low power consumption, especially when the light emitting diode operates at low current. When a current is applied to drive the LED, common mode rejection can be affected by leakage paths inherent to the LED. This paper describes the optimization of CMR performance with split limiting resistors at the LED. By YEE Chee Weng and PENG Jia of Avago Technologies.
