This presentation will focus on design techniques and solutions for implementing up to 2 Watts of isolated, regulated power, for use in communication interface, sensor, and gate drive applications. The discussion will cover the advantages and disadvantages, and other design considerations, in applying discrete, modular, and integrated, isolated DC/DC converter and data coupler technology. Analog Devices’ isoPower® solutions will be used in real-world circuit design examples.
