  • Application Circuit AN-3001 Optocoupler Input Drive Circuit. An optocoupler is a combination of a light source and a photosensitive detector. In the optocoupler, or photon coupled pair, the coupling is achieved by light being generated on one side of a transparent insulating gap and being detected on the other side of the gap without an electrical connection between the two sides (except for a minor amount of coupling capacitance)
