TI and Arrow Electronics to present live Webcast on Isolation Solution selection
News Release from:
30 November 2007
Texas Instruments and Arrow Electronics will present a live Analog eLabT Webcast for designers titled Selecting the Right Isolation Solution on Wednesday, December 12, 2007, at 11:00 a.m. CST (18:00 hrs CET). The webcast will highlight the various isolation options available to
electronics designers and discuss relevant criteria for selecting a solution for their applications. During the webcast, TI analog expert Bill Klein, P.E., and eLab panelists Tim Lafferty from TI and Todd
Frizzell from Arrow will discuss isolation technologies and standards, and offer tips on selecting an appropriate solution. Engineers are invited to register for the one-hour session at www.ti.com/elabwebcast.
Design engineers can choose from a wide selection of isolation technologies such as capacitive, optical and inductive/magnetic to implement galvanic isolation. However, the designer must contend with isolation standards that govern voltage ratings and creepage/clearance distances. The Analog eLab panelists will provide an understanding of the pitfalls and benefits of selecting the right isolation solution for the design and help simplify the choices.
During the lab session, the panelists will perform a series of tests to confirm the appropriate isolation solution has been chosen. Tests include high-voltage time-elapse and skew and jitter tests, as well as a common-mode transient immunity (CMTI) test.
