Overview:

The high power consumption of Optocouplers and Digital Isolators has driven designers to extraordinary lengths to make their applications safe and practical. In many cases the power budget is extremely low because power is being scavenged, or power dissipation in the supply is high. 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 will 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.

Who Should Attend:

Design Engineers with low power isolation requirements who are currently using optocouplers in 4-20mA field instrumentation, telecom interfaces referenced to negative 42V rails, and battery operated applications.
