A digital isolator is a device that isolates digital signals.
They are used in various devices for industrial and medical applications. Insulation is very important in electrical circuits, preventing equipment from short-circuiting or being damaged.
In addition, having the necessary parts well insulated prevents current from flowing elsewhere, helping to eliminate noise and send normal signals.
Digital isolators are widely used in equipment that requires isolation.
For example, they are used in industrial machinery where there are large voltage differences among devices. If power supply sections that require large voltages or large motors and sections that operate with small voltages are located close together, isolation is required where the voltage difference is large. This is to prevent high voltages from being applied to parts that operate at low voltages and damaging them.
It is also used for medical equipment such as X-rays and AEDs. These medical devices are often used by hand, and this is to prevent current from flowing out and causing an electric shock.
There are two types of digital isolators: the magnetic isolation method and the capacitive isolation method.
Both methods have the advantage of long life and can be used at high speeds, and they have superior performance compared to previous isolators.
