Ultra-Low noise power and low EMI for high precision and sensitive signal chain performance

The need for low-noise LDO regulators and switching converters, precision monitoring and reliable protection is fundamental to enabling precision signal chain in medical applications, such as imaging and patient monitoring. Our dedicated power process technologies and advanced circuit and test techniques, increase accuracy, minimize distortion and reduce noise across both linear and switching power converters. Mitigating a switching regulator EMI can be a major challenge for many power-supply designers. Our devices with built-in EMI-reduction technologies help save design time while supporting you to comply with medical safety standard IEC60601-1.

High-voltage isolation for robust and reliable system operation

Our isolation portfolio combines the highest working-voltage and highest reliability to enable extended system lifetime and protection across medical applications, such as patient monitoring, AED and infusion pumps. 

Our isolation portfolio is able to supply isolated signals with efficient, compact and high-performance isolated power. 

Creepage, clearance, and distance through insulation (DTI) are critical distances that are evaluated in any medical equipment certification of digital isolators as per IEC60601-1 medical standard. When medical equipment manufacturers choose our certified digital isolators for their design, they are confident that the insulation performance has been verified by third-party certification bodies.
