The FOD8160 is a 3.3 V / 5 V high-speed logic gate optocoupler with open collector output, which supports isolated communications to allow digital signals to communicate between systems without conducting ground loops or hazardous voltages. It utilizes Fairchild’s prioprietary Optoplanar® coplanar packaging technology and optimized IC design to achieve high noise immunity, characterized by high common mode rejection specifications.
The FOD8160, packaged in a wide-body SOP 5-Pin package, consists of an aluminium 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 3 V to 5.5 V.
