Broadcom Showcases Next-Gen Optocoupler Devices at PCIM

Broadcom Limited AVGO, a leading designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of analog and digital semiconductor connectivity solutions, recently introduced its next-generation 5A gate drive optocoupler devices, ACPL-352J and ACNW3430. These new devices are designed to support a wide range of industrial applications.

The new ACPL-352J incorporates highly advanced technology, which ensures system reliability and high availability. Both these devices feature minimum proliferation delay with excellent timing skew, enabling high frequency switching to enhance efficiency.

The company had tasted immense commercial success with its previous 5A optocouplers. The earlier 5A optocouplers helped Broadcom get an edge over its competitors’ high current, high speed switching applications. The latest model of 5A optocouplers will deliver more cost effective, energy efficient and strong gate driver solutions for industrial applications to its customers.

The company is set to showcase ACPL-352J and ACNW3430 at the PCIM (Power Conversion, Intelligent Motion) Europe 2016 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany. At the event, the company is going to exhibit its latest 5A optocouplers in combination with Panasonic’s X-GaN, which together will likely enable power supply engineers to deliver high-performance and cost-effective gate driver solutions. 

Broadcom’s latest 5A optocouplers are expected to recreate the success its earlier models had in the market. These new innovations are expected to trigger higher sales for the company.

Broadcom merged with rival Avago Technologies early this year. Headquartered in Irvine, CA, Broadcom has an extensive product portfolio, which serves multiple applications within four primary end markets, i.e., wired infrastructure, wireless communications, enterprise storage and industrial & others.

Broadcom carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-ranked stocks include Pixelworks, Inc. PXLW, Himax Technologies, Inc. HIMX and Alpha & Omega Semiconductor, Ltd. AOSL. All three stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
