Product DetailsThe ADuM344x are four channel, digital isolators based on the Analog Devices, Inc., iCoupler® technology supporting data rates up to 150 Mbps. Combining high speed CMOS and monolithic air core transformer technology, these isolation components provide outstanding performance characteristics superior to alternatives such as optocoupler devices.
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 the power of optocouplers at comparable signal data rates.
The ADuM344x isolators provide four independent isolation channels in a variety of channel configurations (see the Ordering Guide). The ADuM344x operates with the supply voltage on either side ranging from 3.0 V to 5.5 V, providing compatibility with lower voltage systems as well as enabling voltage translation functionality across the isolation barrier. In addition, the ADuM344x provides low pulse width distortion and tight channel-to-channel matching. Unlike other opto-coupler alternatives, the ADuM344x isolators have a patented refresh feature that ensures dc correctness in the absence of input logic transitions and during the power-up/power-down condition.
- High speed multichannel isolation
- SPI interface/data converter isolation

Evaluation Kits (2)
The ezLINX™ iCoupler® Isolated Interface Development Environment provides developers with a cost-effective, plug and play method for evaluation eight physical layer, digitally-isolated communication standards (USB, RS-422, RS-485, RS-232, CAN, SPI, I2C, and LVDS). The Blackfin® ADSP-BF548 processor is used to run the uCLinux operating system and allows for easy customization through the open source hardware and software platform. Development time is significantly reduced for embedded designers and system architects who are designing and evaluating isolated communication standards. The interfaces on ezLINX use ADI's isolated transceivers with integrated iCoupler® and isoPower® digital isolator technology.
