JAJSFO3D June 2018 – June 2021 AMC1302
The AMC1302 is a fully differential, precision, isolated amplifier. The input stage of the device consists of a fully differential amplifier that drives a second-order, delta-sigma (ΔΣ) modulator. The modulator converts the analog input signal into a digital bitstream that is transferred across the isolation barrier that separates the high-side from the low-side. On the low-side, the received bitstream is processed by a fourth-order analog filter that outputs a differential signal at the OUTP and OUTN pins that is proportional to the input signal.
The SiO2-based, capacitive isolation barrier supports a high level of magnetic field immunity, as described in the ISO72x Digital Isolator Magnetic-Field Immunity application report. The digital modulation used in the AMC1302 to transmit data across the isolation barrier, and the isolation barrier characteristics itself, result in high reliability and common-mode transient immunity.
