Highly Integrated R 2Couplers Provide Safe Isolation With Improved Power Efficiency and Reduced Power Loss for Electric and Hybrid/Electric Auto Applications
The high voltage, high current switching generates a noisy environment. Optocouplers are very suitable with their immunity against high dV/dt transient noise, as well as immunity against electro-magnetic coupling from the high current cables. By providing safe isolation for all isolation needs in EV and HEV applications there is an improvement in power efficiency and a reduction in system power loss.Addressing Industry Trends Current automotive systems operate at approximately 400V with future systems moving towards 700V to 800V. These new optocouplers are rated for continuous working voltages of 1140V or higher, more than sufficient to meet future needs. Avago optocouplers are proven in the automotive field and have established component safety regulatory standards (UL1577, CSA, IEC 60747-5-5). These standards certify high voltage lifetime and robustness to transients specifically for optocouplers. The new Avago R 2Coupler products, along with the complete family are still the only optocouplers that are qualified to TS 16949 and AEC Q100, quality standards and guidelines reference by the automotive supply chain.
