BÖBLINGEN, Germany -- Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a new family of high-speed digital isolators, capable of transmitting data at a 100-megabaud (MBd) rate. The 3.3V and 5V isolators offer both high package density and low current consumption, with less than 10 µA per input channel and less than 2 mA per output channel.Digital isolators separate and protect sensitive circuitry to allow safe interface between high and low voltages in electronic systems. The Agilent HCPL-90xx/-09xx family of high-speed digital isolators is available in product configurations that range from one to four channels, with each device also available in a unidirectional and bi-directional configuration. The new isolators deliver a data rate of 100 MBd with 2 ns typical pulse width distortion and 10 ns typical propagation delay, enabling a high data transmission rate over longer lines.These UL1577-approved high-speed digital isolators are ideal for communication bus isolation, multiplexed data transmission, digital isolation for analog-to-digital conversion, digital I/O ports, computer peripheral interfaces, and microprocessor system interfaces. In these applications, galvanic isolation reduces or eliminates ground-loop noise and common-mode voltage effects and the possible consequent damage to the interface and associated circuitry.Agilent Technologies Inc.
