Digital Isolator or Optocoupler? Advantages and Disadvantages of each Isolation Technology

29 Oct 2020 - 29 Oct 2020

online


Are you wondering how to select the ideal isolation for your design?  With the advent of digital isolation, as well as ON Semiconductor’s new patented Digi-Max off-chip ceramic digital isolator, there are more choices than ever when it comes to selecting a technology for your isolation needs.  Join us for this session where ON Semiconductor gives an unbiased view of the isolation market.  This webinar walks through the underlying technology, the strengths and weaknesses of each isolation method and how to balance the tradeoffs based on various application scenarios.
 
ON Semiconductor’s new Digi-Max family of galvanically isolated high-speed digital isolators will also be introduced.  The Digi-Max family of devices use ON Semiconductor's patented off-chip capacitor isolation technology and support digital communication between systems without conducting ground loops or hazardous voltages. The ceramic substrate construction offers ~25 times the thickness of thin film on-chip capacitors and coreless transformers, resulting in electrical performance benefits traditionally offered by optocouplers but exceeding optocouplers in speed, common mode transient immunity as well as temperature and lifetime performance.

What you can expect in this webinar:

  • The review of implementation of various isolation technologies
  • Comparison of Optical Photocouplers (OptoCouplers), Digital Isolators with On-Chip & Off-Chip Capacitors Technologies
  • Discussion on the benefits and advantages of each technology as well as recommendations on how to select the right solution.
