Triple-Channel Digital Isolator

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADuM130x are triple-channel digital isolators based on the Analog Devices, Inc., iCoupler® technology. Combining high speed CMOS and monolithic transformer technology, these isolation components provide outstanding performance characteristics superior to alternatives, such as optocouplers.

By avoiding the use of LEDs and photodiodes, iCoupler devices remove the design difficulties commonly associated with optocouplers. The typical optocoupler concerns regarding uncertain current transfer ratios, nonlinear transfer functions, and temperature and lifetime effects are eliminated with the simple iCoupler digital interfaces and stable performance characteristics. The need for external drivers and other discrete components is eliminated with these iCoupler products. Furthermore, iCoupler devices consume one-tenth to one-sixth of the power of optocouplers at comparable signal data rates.

The ADuM130x isolators provide three independent isolation channels in a variety of channel configurations and data rates (see the Ordering Guide in the data sheet). Both models operate with the supply voltage on either side ranging from 2.7 V to 5.5 V, providing compatibility with lower voltage systems as well as enabling a voltage translation functionality across the isolation barrier. In addition, the ADuM130x provide low pulse width distortion (<2 ns for CRW grade) and tight channel-to-channel matching (<2 ns for CRW grade). Unlike other optocoupler alternatives, the ADuM130x isolators have a patented refresh feature that ensures dc correctness in the absence of input logic transitions and when power is not applied to one of the supplies.

EVAL-3CH4CHEBZ Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The EVAL-3CH4CHSOICEBZ evaluation board supports triple- and quad-channel standard data isolators in 16-lead SOIC packages. The evaluation board provides a JEDEC standard 16-lead SOIC_N and SOIC_W pad layout and routing appropriate for the evaluation of supported devices. The evaluation board provides a connection to power supplies by screw terminals and includes optimal bypass capacitors. Signal channel routing supports signal distribution, loopback, and provides positions for loads referenced to the VDD1/VDD2 and GND1/GND2 planes. Signal sources can be conducted to the board through header pins or edge-mounted SMA connectors; SMA connectors must be ordered separately.

Positions for through-hole 0.2 inch headers compatible with active probes are provided on the printed circuit board (PCB); probe header pins must be ordered separately. The board follows PCB design practices for 4-layer boards, including a full power and ground plane on each side of the isolation barrier. No other EMI or noise mitigation design features are included on the board. In cases of very high speed operation or when ultralow emissions are required, refer to the AN-1109 application note for additional board layout techniques.

Full specifications for the device under test (DUT) are available in the corresponding product data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation board.
