The 6N137 optocoupler is designed for use in high-speed digital interfacing applications that require high-voltage isolation between the input and output. Applications include line receivers, microporcessors or computer interface, digital programming of floating power supplies, motors, and other control systems.
The 6N137 high-speed optocoupler consists of a GaAsP light-emitting diode and an integrated light detector composed of a photodiode, a high-gain amplifier, and a Schottky-clamped open-collector output transistor. An input diode forward current of 5 milliamperes will switch the output transistor low, providing an on-state drive current of 13 milliamperes (eight 1.6-milliampere TTL loads). A TTL-compatible enable input is provided for applications that require output-transistor gating.
The 6N137 is characterized for operation over the temperature range of 0°C to 70°C.
