Duration: 30 Minutes
Increase your awareness and basic understanding of isolated amplifiers and isolated modulators: what they are, why they are used, common applications, and key electrical and isolation specifications. Major topics of this webinar include:
- The differences between isolated amplifiers and modulators (input to output, how the output is processed)
- Basic vs. reinforced isolation
- Current vs. voltage sensing
- Low-grade vs. high-grade. TI device examples: AMC1300, AMC1311, ISO224
- Key isolation specs and their importance for achieving reliable operation and longest lifetime
