Description for the ISO1641

The ISO1644,ISO1640 and ISO1641 (ISO164x) devices are hot swappable, low-power, bidirectional isolators that are compatible with I2C interfaces. The ISO164x supports UL 1577 isolation ratings of 5000 VRMS in the 16-DW package, and 3000 VRMS in the 8-D package. Each I2C isolation channel in this low emissions device has a logic input and open drain output separated by a double capacitive silicon dioxide (SiO2) insulation barrier. The ISO1644 intregrates 3 unidirectional CMOS isolation channels which can be used for static GPIO isolation or to isolate a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) bus. This family includes basic and reinforced insulation devices certified by VDE, UL, CSA, TUV and CQC. The ISO1644 and ISO1640 has two isolated bidirectional channels for clock and data lines while the ISO1641 has a bidirectional data and a unidirectional clock channel. The ISO164x family integrates logic required to support bidirectional channels, providing a much simpler design and smaller footprint when compared to optocoupler-based solutions.
