Digital Isolation Offers Compact, Low-Cost Solutions to Challenging Design Problems

New isolation capabilities—including integrated, isolated power and truly bidirectional isolation channels—are greatly simplifying the design of isolated systems. Fueled by a shift from LED-based optocouplers to chip-scale microtransformer technology that is compatible with standard CMOS processes, they fit more functionality into a single package. This article discusses two kinds of devices that embody these advances.

Looks like a great product. I'm looking forward to try them out. The big trick will be to get the price down so they can be used like candy bars.

p.s. noticed that in several places that 'mm' is used to mean micrometere and in others 'um' is used. I've not see the 'mm' convention before.

Excellent article.
Analog Device is leading in areas where other manufacturers stay away from.
Isolations of datas will become more and more important with the use of data storage in our laptop.

In the transformer and polyimide dimensions, "mm" was displayed as a result of an HTML error. The correct units are "um", as shown in the PDF. The HTML is now fixed. Thanks for the sharp eyes.
