The ISOW784x family of devices has a high-efficiency, low-emissions isolated DC-DC converter, and four high-speed isolated data channels. Figure 9-1 shows the functional block diagram of the ISOW784x family of devices.

The integrated DC-DC converter uses switched mode operation and proprietary circuit techniques to reduce power losses and boost efficiency. Specialized control mechanisms, clocking schemes, and the use of a high-Q on-chip transformer provide high efficiency and low radiated emissions. The integrated transformer uses thin film polymer as the insulation barrier.

The VCC supply is provided to the primary power controller that switches the power stage connected to the integrated transformer. Power is transferred to the secondary side, rectified and regulated to either 3.3 V or 5 V, depending on the SEL pin. The output voltage, VISO, is monitored and feedback information is conveyed to the primary side through a dedicated isolation channel. The duty cycle of the primary switching stage is adjusted accordingly. The fast feedback control loop of the power converter ensures low overshoots and undershoots during load transients. Undervoltage lockout (UVLO) with hysteresis is integrated on the VCC and VISO supplies which ensures robust system performance under noisy conditions. An integrated soft-start mechanism ensures controlled inrush current and avoids any overshoot on the output during power up.

The integrated signal-isolation channels employ an ON-OFF keying (OOK) modulation scheme to transmit the digital data across a silicon-dioxide based isolation barrier. The transmitter sends a high-frequency carrier across the barrier to represent one state and sends no signal to represent the other state. The receiver demodulates the signal after signal conditioning and produces the output through a buffer stage. The signal-isolation channels incorporate advanced circuit techniques to maximize the CMTI performance and minimize the radiated emissions from the high frequency carrier and IO buffer switching. Figure 9-2 shows a functional block diagram of a typical signal isolation channel.

The ISOW784x family of devices is suitable for applications that have limited board space and require more integration. This family of devices is also suitable for very-high voltage applications, where power transformers meeting the required isolation specifications are bulky and expensive.
