2.5A Gate Drive Optocoupler with Integrated Desaturation Detection and Fault Status Feedback

Currently Viewing:

The ACPL-5160 is a commercial grade hermetically sealed optocoupler in a 16-Pin ceramic DIP package with gold plated leads. Solder dipped leads and various lead form options are also available. See the datasheet for details.
This family of Avago 2.5A Gate Drive Optocouplers provides Integrated Desaturation (VCE) Detection and Fault Status Feedback for IGBT VCE fault protection in a rugged, hermetically-sealed package.  The devices are capable of operation and storage over the full military temperature range and can also be purchased with full MIL-PRF-38534 Class H testing or from the DLA Standard Microcircuit Drawing (SMD) 5962-12236. The ACPL-5160 is manufactured and tested on a MIL-PRF-38534 certified line and the Class H version is included in the DLA Qualified Manufacturers List QML-38534 for Hybrid Microcircuits.* 
This is a highly integrated power control device that incorporates all the necessary components for a complete, isolated IGBT gate drive circuit with fault protection and feedback into one rugged, hermetically sealed package.
* SMD pending.
