With more than 500 million channels deployed, ADI’s iCoupler® technology provides a proven digital isolation option to traditional optocoupler based solutions
element14, formerly Farnell, the industry’s first fusion of commerce and community supporting millions of engineers and purchasing professionals worldwide, has announced the availability of the latest digital isolators that feature the award winning iCoupler® technology from Analog Devices to its 120,000-strong electronic design engineer relevant inventory of products stocked within the Asia Pacific.
iCoupler® digital isolators from Analog Devices combine proprietary chip-scale micro-transformer technology, analog and mixed-signal circuits, as well as high-speed CMOS, creating devices with significant system level integration and functional advantages over other digital isolators and optocouplers. Offering isolation and innovation in one package, the iCoupler digital isolators portfolio is the broadest in the industry and includes standard digital isolators, digital isolators with isoPower, digital isolators with integrated PWM controller and transformer driver, USB 2.0 compatible isolators, isolated gatedrivers, isolated I²C digital isolators, isolated RS-485 transceivers, isolated RS-232 devices, isolated ∑-∆ ADCs.
The ADuM347x Family are quad-channel, digital isolators with an integrated PWM controller and transformer driver for an isolated dc-to-dc converter. The dc-to-dc converter provides up to 2 W of regulated, isolated power at 3.3 V to 24 V from a 5.0 V input supply or from a 3.3 V supply which eliminates the need for a separate, isolated dc-to-dc converter. The iCoupler chip-scale transformer technology is used to isolate the logic signals, and the integrated transformer driver with isolated secondary side control provides higher efficiency for the isolated dc-to-dc converter. The result is a small form factor, total isolation solution.
The recently released ADuM3160 and ADuM4160 are the industry’s first single package USB isolation solutions. The USB 2.0 compliant ADuM3160 and ADuM4160 are fully isolated to 1.5-Mbps and 12-Mbps and have been developed to lower system cost, reduce design size, and to lessen design time all while meeting the most demanding medical and industrial standards. The ADuM4160 offers 5kV rms isolation that is ideal for medical applications as well as applications in harsh industrial environments. The ADuM3160 offers 2.5kV rms isolation and electrically isolates instrumentation and controls by protecting equipment from damaging surges or spikes and by eliminating down time when using non-isolated ports.
