The ISO773x devices
are high-performance, triple-channel digital isolators with 5000 VRMS (DW
package) and 3000 VRMS (DBQ package) isolation ratings per UL
This family includes devices with reinforced insulation ratings according to VDE, CSA,
TUV and CQC. The ISO7731B device is designed for applications that require
basic insulation ratings only.
The ISO773x family
of devices provides high electromagnetic immunity and low emissions at low power consumption, while
isolating CMOS or LVCMOS digital I/Os. Each isolation channel has a logic input and output buffer
separated by a double capacitive silicon dioxide (SiO2) insulation barrier.
This device comes with enable pins which can be used to put the respective outputs in high
impedance for multi-master driving applications and to reduce power consumption.
The ISO7730 device
has all three channels in the same direction and the ISO7731 device has two forward and one reverse-direction channel. If the
input power or signal is lost, the default output is high for
devices without suffix F and low for devices with suffix F. See
the Device Functional Modes section for further
Used in conjunction with isolated power supplies, this family of devices helps prevent
noise currents on data buses, such as RS-485, RS-232, and CAN, or other circuits from entering the local ground and interfering
with or damaging sensitive circuitry. Through innovative chip design and layout techniques,
electromagnetic compatibility of the ISO773x device has been significantly enhanced to ease system-level ESD,
EFT, surge, and emissions compliance. The ISO773x family of devices is available in 16-pin wide-SOIC and QSOP
