Broadcom Webinar: Optocoupler Degradation -  Fact or Fiction?  


Broadcom optocouplers can be used in an array of isolation applications ranging from power supply and motor control
circuits to data communications and digital logic interface circuits in both industrial and automotive markets. The primary
purpose of an optocoupler is to provide both electrical insulation (safety) and signal isolation (reliability).

Optocouplers eliminate the effects of electrical noise caused by crosstalk, power glitches and electrical interference. They
provide high voltage isolation allowing safe interface between high and low voltages in electrical circuits and are also used
for shifting logic levels. Key Broadcom products include optocouplers with digital and analog output, high speed and high
gain performance, drivers for isolated gate transistors, MOSFETS and intelligent power modules, smart current sensors
and other application specific devices.

When selecting the correct product to use in isolation applications, it is important for designers to understand safety and
performance relevant features to guarantee optimum reliability over the lifetime of their products. This presentation
will specifically cover the topics of LED degradation, insulation ratings, aging mechanisms and the effects of ESD and high
voltage surges. It will also include a short overview of the current Broadcom isolation portfolio and key new product


Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn the fundamentals of LED and optical insulation aging and testing
  • Understand how the IEC 60747-5-5 component safety standard guarantees
    lifetime performance.
  • Find out about ESD and high voltage surge immunity in optical isolation.
  • Learn about the newest product developments and where to get further
