SMD April – USB Isolator overview

You can see from looking at the block diagram above that the isolation is transformer based, it’s quite remarkable that they can fit 5 transformers in such a small package.  If you can’t attend the workshop the pcb files can be found on github and all the parts at Newark/Element14.

Newark/Element14 have an excellent video from Analog Devices embedded in their product web page for the ADUM3160/4160.  I’ve embedded it below.
