Water and light flow inspire optical coupler sensor

Water and light flow inspire optical coupler sensor
When a river narrows or two rivers run into each other and merge, the water flow's speed increases and it becomes much stronger. Water flow and light flow are similar in many ways, and this inspired a group of researchers from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to explore whether light flow within a waveguide—a linear structure that transports electromagnetic waves between endpoints—behaves in the same manner.

High accuracy photocouplers integrate delta sigma ADC

High accuracy photocouplers integrate delta sigma ADC
Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced two digital output isolation amplifiers for current and voltage sensing in power converters. The TLP7830 and TLP7930 achieve high accuracy through the inclusion of a delta sigma ADC. A choice of two package types are available: TLP7930 is supplied in an industry-standard DIP8 package and the TLP7830 is available in a compact SO8L package, which takes up 30% less board space and features a 40% lower profile.

5A gate drive optocouplers features unmatched noise immunity

Broadcom Limited has announced a new generation of 5A gate drive optocoupler devices, the ACPL-352J and ACNW3430, designed for a wide range of industrial applications including motor drives and power inverters. The devices feature superb common mode transient immunity (CMTI) of up to 100kV/μs, preventing erroneous gate driver failures in noisy environments. Both the ACPL-352J and ACNW3430 support up to 5A rail-torail output current, which eliminates the need of an output buffer circuit, enabling designers to implement cost-effective and power efficient gate driver solutions.
