Whitepaper: Innovations Driving Opto-Isolator Advances
An increasingly important requirement of modern electronic designs is the need to meet global safety approvals in terms of isolation. Such isolation must not impact on performance or power consumption and, despite the need for high withstand voltages, must be implemented in the minimum of space. This paper describes how new generations of rugged photocouplers in miniature package sizes and with extended temperature, long-life operation are allowing industrial equipment and home appliances designers to address these challenges through optical isolation.
