In July 2011, EDOM Technology introduced Silicon Labs’ new product of digital isolators that offers the highest channel count, performance and data rates for demanding applications with isolation ratings up to 5 kV.
Features and USP: The new Si86xx 3.75 kV and 5 kV digital isolators replace optocouplers in target applications requiring robust operations and high levels of insulation protection, such as industrial automation and drives, motor control and medical systems. With its 5kV rating, the Si86xx family offers an ideal isolation solution for systems powered from 220 Vac mains supplies such as isolated AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies, as well as solar panel microinverters, data communications systems and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Samples and production quantities of the Si86xx digital isolators are available now in a variety of compact packages, including wide-body SOIC-16 packages rated at 5 kV and narrow-body SOIC-8 and SOIC-16 packages rated at 3.75 kV. Pricing in 10,000-unit quantities for 5 kV Si86xx devices starts from US$ 1.06 for a single channel; 3.75 kV rated devices go up to US$ 3.76 for six channel versions rated to 5 kV isolation in SOIC-16 packages.
