Photo Release -- Avago Technologies Introduces New Dual-Channel Bi-Directional
High Speed Optocoupler

Industry's Fastest Dual-Channel Bi-Directional Optocoupler With Ultra Low
Profile for Industrial Communication Networks

SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago
Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components
for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today announced a new
dual-channel bi-directional 25 MBd digital optocoupler device, the ACSL-7210.
The device is a dual-channel high speed digital optocoupler optimized for
bi-directional industrial communication networks using high speed protocols
such as PROFIBUS fieldbus and Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). The ACSL-7210
utilizes Avago's proprietary IC and patented packaging technologies to achieve
3,750 V[RMS] signal isolation in a low profile SO-8 package while supporting
high speed full-duplex data communications with data rates up to 25 MBd.
