TAIWAN: Mouser Electronics Inc. now stocks the new Fairchild FOD8160 logic gate optocoupler that is ideal for energy generation and distribution, industrial motor, and uninterruptible power supply applications.
The FOD8160 high-speed optocoupler supports isolated communications to allow digital signals to communicate between systems without conducting ground loops or hazardous voltages.
The Fairchild FOD8160 logic gate optocoupler utilizes Fairchild’s proprietary Optoplanar® coplanar packaging technology and optimized IC design to achieve high noise immunity, characterized by high common mode rejection specifications.
The FOD8160 is packaged in a wide-body SOP 5-Pin package, and consists of an aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) LED and an integrated high-speed photodetector. The output of the detector IC is an open collector Schottky-clamped transistor. The electrical and switching characteristics are guaranteed over the extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to +100°C and a Vcc range of 3V to 5.5V.
