Low Power Digital Signal Isolators

Maxim digital signal isolator products provide up to 5kV of isolation and support data rates up to 150Mbps. Digital isolators are replacing optocouplers in many applications because they offer the same isolation capability while reducing power requirements and using less board space. Products are available for use with many industry communication standards. When used with Maxim's industrial digital input level translator and serializers, these digital isolators provide a complete digital input solution that saves design space increases reliability, and reduces power requirements.
