This paper provides an overview of galvanic isolation, explains common isolation methods for high-voltage systems, and shows how Texas Instruments (TI) isolation integrated circuits (ICs) can help designers meet isolation needs reliably while reducing solution size and cost.
|1 What is galvanic isolation?|
Galvanic isolation introduces electrical partitions that prevent current from flowing between two or more parts of a system. Isolating signals and power protects personnel and equipment and adheres to industry and international standards.
|2 High-voltage galvanic isolation concerns|
Learn the primary considerations when constructing an isolation barrier, such as voltage ratings, spacing dimensions, common-mode transient immunity (CMTI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
|3 Achieve isolation needs reliably while reducing solution size and cost|
Advancements in capacitive and magnetic isolation, package development, and process technology from TI can deliver power and high-speed signals safely and reliably across the isolation barrier in industrial and automotive systems such as electric vehicles (EVs), grid infrastructure, factory automation and motor drives.
