Isolated ICs Ensure Precise Measurements With Little Temperature Drift

(Silicon Labs)

Silicon Labs family of isolated analog amplifiers, voltage sensors, and delta-sigma modulator (DSM) devices boast accurate current and voltage measurements with very low drift across temperature. Based on Silicon Labs’ third-generation isolation technology, the Si89xx family provides voltage, current, output, and package options to help developers reduce BOM cost and shrink board space for a wide range of industrial and green-energy applications including electric vehicle (EV) battery management and charging systems, dc-dc converters, and motor, solar and wind turbine inverters.

 

The Si89xx family includes:

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.
  1. Si892x isolated analog amplifiers optimized for shunt-current sensing
  2. Si8931/2 isolated analog amplifiers optimized for general-purpose voltage sensing
  3. Si8935/6/7 isolated DSM devices optimized for voltage sensing—an industry first
  4. Si8941/6/7 isolated DSM devices optimized for shunt-current sensing

Si89xx devices provide typical offset error as low as ±40 µV and ±0.1% gain error, enabling precise measurements. Typical offset drift as low as ±0.15 µV/˚C and typical gain drift as low as –6 ppm/˚C ensure exceptional accuracy across temperature. The devices offer the industry’s highest typical signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)—up to 90 dB. A unique low-power mode automatically reduces current draw on one side of the isolation barrier to approximately 1 mA whenever voltage is removed from the other side, enabling a controller to manage power with a simple field-effect transistor (FET).

 

Options include:

  • Current or voltage-optimized devices with single-ended, differential or DSM output
  • ±62.5 mV, ±250 mV or 2.5 V input ranges
  • A stretched wide-body SOIC-8 package to support 5 kVrms isolation and 9-mm creepage/clearance and a compact narrow-body SOIC-8 to support 2.5 kVrms isolation
