6N137 High Speed Optocoupler



IC, EL 6N137, Optocoupler, DIP8. It is single-channel and it consists of a 850 nm AlGaAS LED, optically coupled to a very high speed integrated photo-detector logic gate with a strobable output. This output features an open collector, thereby permitting wired OR outputs.


  Very high speed – 10 MBit/s 
  Superior CMR – 10 kV/us 
  Logic gate output 
  Strobable output 
  Wired OR-open collector

6N137 pinout diagram configuration

NCPin 1Pin 1 is a no connection pin, which has no connection with the internal circuit and no usage with external circuit too.
ANODEPin 2Pin 2 is an anode pin used to give the logic input to the IR of the IC, to send the input data through IR transmission.
CATHODEPin 3Pin 3 is a cathode pin of the IR transmitter, mostly used as a common ground with sender circuit.
NCPin 4Pin 4 is also a no connection pin.
GROUNDPin 5Pin 5 is a ground pin for IR receiver within the optocoupler.
V0Pin 6Pin 6 is a logical output pin of 6N137 IC.
VEPin 7Pin 7 is the enable pin, which works with the output. The enable pin will be enabled by default.
VccPin 8Pin 8 is used to powerup the IC.
