Broadcom ACPL-x61L 10MBd Digital Optocouplers

Broadcom ACPL-M61L and ACPL-W61L 10MBd digital CMOS optocouplers are designed for low-power needs. These Broadcom digital optocouplers consume extremely low power, at approximately 2mA per channel, providing as much as 90% less power than the standard optocoupler or 60% less power than the alternative isolators. The ACPL-M61L and ACPL-W61L ulta low power devices combine an AIGaAs LED and an integrated high-gain photodetector. These Broadcom optocouplers are ideal for a variety of applications, including communication interfaces, microprocessor system interfaces, and digital isolation for analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters.
