How to Reduce the Cost and Complexity of Isolation Design

How can you meet the continually-increasing need for isolation design without getting bogged down in a sea of complexity, EMC tests and safety certifications? This article from Analog Devices has the answers.

With dramatic increases in the demand for electric automobiles and electric content in general, there’s been an incredible growth in the need for isolation design as well. Unfortunately, isolation in systems involves complex architectures and processes that limit agility and flexibility. Not to mention, it complicates the power design.

To compound matters, globalization and heightened competition have product developers scrambling in an attempt to reduce costs and time to market – all at the same time. Meeting increasingly demanding electromagnetic-compatibility (EMC) requirements can also be a challenge. And safety agencies tend to scrutinize discrete system designs more closely which can lead to multiple design iterations and too many costly trips back to the lab.

To curb costs, some may be tempted to resort to conventional measures like the discrete flyback approach, but with that there’s a definite tradeoff there both in engineering effort and technical risk.

The good news is there’s a far better solution at hand. Fully-integrated, safety-certified, isolated dc-to-dc converters offer system designers a better solution, complete with well-documented EMC performance. All of which will reduce design complexity and ensure better testing and compliance.

With less time dedicated to redesign, recharacterization and retesting, you can reduce board space, accelerate your time to market, while lowering your costs and your risk.
