Avago introduces industry's first automotive grade photovoltaic driver

Avago Technologies has introduced the ACPL-K30T, an optocoupler-based photovoltaic driver device designed to drive high voltage MOSFET and withstand extreme heat for automotive under-the-hood applications. The device is optimized for use in battery management systems of modern electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) as well as high-temperature power systems of conventional internal combustion engine vehicles.

The ACPL-K30T is the industry’s first solid state photovoltaic driver that is automotive qualified per AEC-Q100 Grade 1. The device features high ESD rating and fast turn-off time, and is compatible with a wide selection of AEC-Q101 certified MOSFET components to form a solid state relay solution of desired voltage or current rating. The ACPL-K30T is the latest addition to the Avago R2Coupler® family of automotive optocouplers, providing reinforced insulation and reliability for mission critical under-the-hood applications.

ACPL-K30T Product Highlights

  • Qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 1 Test Guidelines
  • Automotive Operating Temperature from -40 °C to +125 °C
  • Open Circuit Voltage: 7 V (Typical at LED Drive Current of 10mA)
  • Short Circuit Current: 5 µA (Typical at LED Drive Current of 10mA)
  • Fast Turn-off Time of 40 µs (Typical)
  • 2kV Human Body Model ESD Rating
  • Stretched SO-8 Package Compatible with Standard Surface Mount Processes
  • Lead (Pb) Free and RoHS 6 Fully Compliant


"We are very excited about the introduction of the ACPL-K30T. This new R2Coupler photovoltaic driver device has gained significant customer adoption and interests, and is enabling a new generation of solid state relay solutions for automotive under-the-hood applications," said Cheng-Dee Lee, director of business development for Avago’s Isolation Products Division. "To date more than 50 car models have adopted Avago’s R2Coupler products. The new ACPL-K30T shall further expand Avago product footprints in the EV, HEV and PHEV."
