Mouser First to Stock Fairchild FOD8160 Logic Gate Optocoupler

NPFairchildFOD8160R2Mouser Electronics, Inc. now stocks the new Fairchild FOD8160 logic gate Optocoupler that is ideal for energy generation and distribution, industrial motor, and uninterruptible power supply applications. The FOD8160 high-speed optocoupler supports isolated communications to allow digital signals to communicate between systems without conducting ground loops or hazardous voltages.

The Fairchild FOD8160 logic gate optocoupler utilizes Fairchild’s proprietary Optoplanar® coplanar packaging technology and optimized IC design to achieve high noise immunity, characterized by high common mode rejection specifications. The FOD8160 is packaged in a wide-body SOP 5-Pin package, and consists of an aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) LED and an integrated high-speed photodetector. The output of the detector IC is an open collector Schottky-clamped transistor. The electrical and switching characteristics are guaranteed over the extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to +100°C and a Vcc range of 3V to 5.5V.
