  • Integrated Approach to SPI using Digital Isolator Technology

    Integrated Approach to SPI using Digital Isolator Technology

    SPI is the bus used for isolated IC to IC communications. Use of unidirectional lines makes it easy to isolate. But since there no support for interrupts, and in band addressing for target devices, extra isolated channels usually surround it. The clocking scheme also links the bus speed to the propagation delay of the isolation. In this webinar we will look at new integrated SPI digital isolator solutions that address these shortcomings.

  • Webinar: Digital Potentiometers - Where and How to Use

    Webinar: Digital Potentiometers - Where and How to Use

    Digital Potentiometers (digiPOTs) provide a convenient way to adjust the ac or dc voltage or current output of sensors, power supplies, or other devices that require some type of calibration. This webcast will describe the function, use and advantages of using digital potentiometers in various applications. The webinar will also highlight the main parameters to be considered when designing a circuit using a digital potentiometer.

  • Isolation in Ultra Low Power Applications

    Isolation in Ultra Low Power Applications

    Advances in isolation technology have reduced the power consumption of digital isolators by orders of magnitude making convenience and safety of standard components available for low power applications. In this webcast we'll look at several designs that take advantage of quiescent currents less than 1uA per channel. This includes 4-20mA field instrumentation, telecom interfaces referenced to negative 42V rails and battery operated applications.

  • The Spectrum of Current Sensing: From DC to Light

    The Spectrum of Current Sensing: From DC to Light

    Current measurement is an essential part of sensor interface, control, power management, and communications. The span of current sensing is from picoamperes to kiloamperes, and from DC to gigahertz (or light, when using photodiodes). We will cover high power and motor control, 4-20mA industrial communications, energy monitoring, photodiodes, isolation, and developing precision current sources. We will also show on-line tools for circuit design.

  • Partitioning and Design for Precision Data Acquisition Systems

    Partitioning and Design for Precision Data Acquisition Systems

    Acquired analog signals can be manipulated and processed by either the analog or digital portions of a system, for example, through filtering, multiplexing, and gain control. The analog portions of a system can typically provide reasonably simple processing at fairly low cost, power, and overhead. Digital processing can provide far greater analysis power and can alter the nature of the analysis without changing hardware.

  • Addressing System Integration Challenges with Isolated Industrial Interfaces

    Addressing System Integration Challenges with Isolated Industrial Interfaces

    Interfaces in industrial and instrumentation applications require isolation due to the harsh operating environments in which they operate. The designer has a choice of selecting a digital isolator or an optocoupler solution to incorporate the necessary isolation for their system. The integration of that isolation into the signal chain poses several challenges at the system level, including set-up, debug and software related pitfalls.

  • Got my data over the isolation barrier! Now how do I get power to run it?

    Got my data over the isolation barrier! Now how do I get power to run it?

    “What do you mean I have to isolate this thing?” If you have ever thought your design was done only to find out you needed to isolate data in addition to getting power to the isolated circuits, then this webcast is for you. In this session, we will discuss the pros and cons of the various methods of accomplishing this task while saving important board space, design time and cost.
