The EVAL-5CH6CHSOICEBZ supports 5-channel and 6-channel iCoupler® standard data isolators in a 16-lead SOIC package. The evaluation board provides a JEDEC standard, 16-lead SOIC_N and SOIC_W pad layout. This layout supports signal distribution, loopback, and loads referenced to the VDDx or GNDx planes, as well as optimal bypass capacitance. Signal sources can be conducted to the evaluation board through header pins or through edge mounted SMA connectors (SMA connectors must be ordered separately). Screw terminal blocks on the evaluation board provide power connections.
The evaluation board includes 0.2 inch header positions for compatibility with active probes (probe header pins must be ordered separately).
The evaluation board follows best PCB design practices for 4-layer boards, including a full power plane and ground plane on each side of the isolation barrier. No other electromagnetic interference (EMI) or noise mitigation design features are included on the evaluation board. In cases of high speed operation, or when ultralow emissions are required, refer to the AN-1109 Application Note for additional evaluation board layout techniques.
