Photo Release -- Avago Technologies Unveils New Gate Drive Optocouplers For High Switching Frequency Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today unveiled two new sets of high speed gate drive optocoupler devices, the ACPL-P/W345 and ACPL-P/W346. These devices are 1A and 2.5A gate drive optocouplers designed to protect and drive Power MOSFET and Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET for high switching frequency applications such as inverter, motor control, and switching power supply (SPS). Compared to Avago's previous generation devices, the ACPL-P/W345 and ACPL-P/W346 are twice as fast in terms of propagation delay.
