Broadcom – Optocouplers for Industry 4.0

Register for this webinar to discover a selection of Broadcom’s optocoupler products and discuss how they may contribute in key Industry 4.0 trends such as digitalization and data, robotic application, functional safety and predictive maintenance.

Date: August 11, 2020
Time: 9 AM EDT (6 AM PDT / 3:00 PM CEST)
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


This webinar examines key industrial trends such as big data, robotics, functional safety and predictive maintenance, and explains how Broadcom's wide selection of optocoupler products may contribute.

Topics include the "digitalization of things" as well as a look at Broadcom's newest generation of optically isolated sigma-delta modulators.

The final topic on predictive maintenance will showcase Broadcom's existing solid state relay solution for battery/motor/solar panel insulation resistance monitoring, and voltage/current threshold detection optocouplers for brownout or blackout events.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn why dynamic CMTI is a more accurate measure of the ability to reject high voltage common mode transients for digital optocouplers and isolators.
  • Discover current sensing solutions for robotics applications
  • See an overview of smart gate drivers that incorporate features for functional safety reporting
