ISOLATED-USB-EK

MSRP $39.99

Isolated USB Evaluation Kit

The Isolated USB Evaluation Kit is a demonstration and evaluation platform for creating Isolated USB solutions. It can be used in conjunction with EFM32 and EFM8 MCU Stater Kits (STKs). It simplifies the process of creating an isolated USB solution by offering an already built and functioning platform. The board schematics are available and there are examples that can be run on the MCU STKs to communicate via isolated USB. The board contains two isolators, a USB to UART bridge device, a 20-pin breakout header for easy connection, many headers for debugging and evaluation, and a micro USB port.

ISOLATED-USB Board Contents

  • USB-UART bridge device
  • 20-pin header for connection to MCU Starter Kits
  • Micro USB cable

ISOLATED-USB Features

  • 2 x isolators
  • Breakout points
  • Loopback jumpers for easy evaluation
  • Transformer for easy power over isolation
  • Status LEDs

Enablement

All Silicon Labs MCU or WLMCU Starter Kits can connect to the Isolated-USB board. There is example code on the SLSTK2000A (EFM8 Universal Bee) and the EFM32EG-STK3800. One of these boards is needed for full evaluation and demonstration.

Step 1: Order an Isolation Expansion Kit

The isolated expansion kit contains the isolated expansion board and is a fast and easy way to get started with evaluation and development of isolated applications.  It can be used as an attachment or expansion of the EFM32/EFM8 Microcontroller kits to build an isolated sensing or computing node.
