High Speed Optocoupler

Onlinecomponents.com, an authorized distributor of Vishay Semiconductors products, features the 6N137, VO2601, and VO2611. the devices are single channel 10 MBd optocouplers utilizing a high efficient input LED coupled with an integrated optical photodiode IC detector. The detector has an open drain NMOS-transistor output, providing less leakage compared to an open collector Schottky clamped transistor output.

The VO2630, VO2631, and VO4661 are dual channel 10 MBd optocouplers. For the single channel type, an enable function on pin 7 allows the detector to be strobed. The internal shield provides a guaranteed common mode transient immunity of 5 kV/μs for the VO2601 and VO2631 and 15 kV/μs for the VO2611 and VO4661. The use of a 0.1 μF bypass capacitor connected between pin 5 and 8 is recommended.
