Avago Technologies Introduces New Family of Optocouplers in 14.2mm Wide
Creepage and Clearance for High Voltage Applications

Industry's Highest Insulation Voltage Optocouplers in Compact SSO-8 Footprint

SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE, May 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago
Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components
for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today announced a new
family of 14.2mm optocoupler devices, the ACNT-Hxxx, designed for high voltage
applications. The ACNT-Hxxx family consists of three major product series: the
ACNT-H3xx, high efficiency gate drive optocouplers for driving IGBTs; the
ACNT-H6xL, low power 10MBd digital optocouplers for system control and data
communications; and the ACNT-H79x, high linearity isolation amplifiers for
current and voltage sensing applications.

ACNT-Hxxx Highlighted Features and Benefits

  *Safety Approvals for CSA, UL and IEC

       *IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-5: V[IORM] = 2,262 Vpeak
       *UL1577: V[ISO ]= 7,500 Vrms
       *Robust, reliable and fail safe reinforced insulation

  *14.2mm Creepage and Clearance

       *Industry's highest insulation voltage in compact 14.2mm SSO-8 package
       *Meets stringent system and equipment regulatory requirements

  *High Gate Driving Current and Noise Immunity (ACNT-H3xx)

       *Minimum 2A output current for driving IGBT
       *Minimum 40kV/µs CMR at V[CM] = 1.5 kV minimizing erroneous signals in
         driving IGBT in noisy environment

  *Low Power Consumption (ACNT-H6xL)

       *Less than 20 mW
       *Industry's lowest power 10MBd optocoupler in compact 14.2mm SSO-8

  *Excellent Linearity and Gain Accuracy (ACNT-H79x)

       *Advanced sigma-delta A/D modulation technology with full differential
       *0.05% linearity and -50ppm/°C gain drift for enhanced accuracy

"High-voltage power systems today require chip-level components to support
well insulated and noise-immune large signals to minimize copper wiring costs
while maintaining optimal power efficiency," said Kheng-Jam Lee, marketing
director of Avago's Isolation Products Division. "Avago has stepped up to the
challenge with the introduction of a new 14.2mm optocoupler family. With the
industry's highest insulation voltage in compact SSO-8 footprint, the
ACNT-Hxxx is the most complete and cost-effective set of high-voltage
optocoupler solutions on the market today addressing a wide range of high
power industrial applications including inverters, motor drives and power

Avago will be showcasing the new ACNT-H313, ACNT-H61L and ACNT-H790 in the
Avago Booth 6-220 at the PCIM Europe 2014 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany
from May 20^th to 22^nd.


Samples of the ACNT-H313, ACNT-H61L and ACNT-H790 are available now with
expected general availability for the ACNT-H313 in June 2014, the ACNT-H61L in
September 2014, and the ACNT-H790 in October 2014. Please contact your local
Avago Technologies sales representative for samples and pricing.
