Mouser ships Skyworks’ optocouplers for military and avionics designs

High-speed optocouplers from Skyworks are available from Mouser Electronics. The OLI300, OLS300, OLI500, and OLS500 optocouplers are designed for avionics, biomedical materials, radar, space, surveillance systems, instrumentation, and military communications and feature 1500V DC electrical isolation between the input and output.

The OLI300 and OLS300 optocouplers are suitable for interfacing transistor-transistor logic (TTL) to low-power Schottky transistor-transistor logic (LSTTL). They are also suitable for CMOS and wide bandwidth analogue applications. They also include an LED and an integrated photodiode transistor detector. The integrated photodiode transistor improves the switching speed (compared to standard phototransistors) by reducing the base-to-collector capacitance, explains Mouser.

The OLI500 and OLS500 optocouplers are suitable for high-speed digital interfacing applications, elimination of ground loops, and input/output buffering. They include an LED and an integrated high-speed detector. The LED light is collected by the photodiode in the integrated detector and amplified by a high-gain linear-amplifier that drives a Schottky-clamped open-collector output transistor. The typical propagation delay for these two optocouplers is 60 nanoseconds. The internal shield improves common-mode transient immunity to 1000V/ micro second minimum.
