Universal Serial Bus (USB) Cable Isolator Circuit Download White Paper 600Ko

The universal serial bus (USB) is rapidly becoming the standard interface for most PC peripherals due to superior speed flexibility and support of device hot swap. However, there is concern over how to provide the isolation required for connections to machines that control dangerous voltages. The ADuM4160 is designed primarily as an isolation element for a peripheral USB device; though there are occasions when it is useful to create an isolated cable function. This circuit isolates a peripheral device that already implements a USB interface. It will provide a convenient isolated USB cable solution that provides power to the peripheral as well as operation at a fixed speed.

This month, Cherry is giving away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win. Cherry's energy harvesting technology benefit mostly applications where a complex wire assembly and/or batteries would be inappropriate.

The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. The technology is very easy to install, fit and forget, with two standardised package versions for industrial applications: a rocker switch for actuation by hand and a snap-action switch for mechanical actuation.
