Digital Isolator Design Guide (Rev. B)


This design guide helps system designers of galvanically isolated systems to begin designing with TI's broad portfolio of digital isolators and isolated functions in the shortest time possible. This portfolio includes the ISO78xx family of 5.7-kVrms reinforced digital isolators, the ISO77xx family of 5-kVrms digital isolators, the ISO73xx family of 3-kVrms digital isolators, and the ISO71xx family of 2.5-kVrms digital isolators, among others. This document explains the basic operating principle of an isolator, suggests where to place it within a system design, and recommends guidelines for an electromagnetic compatible (EMC) circuit-board design.
