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.

  • 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 MCU Starter Kit

The isolation expansion boards are made to be connected to a microcontroller kit. The isolated signals are read by the MCU. This allows for the creation of a fully functional isolation node that can transmit and receive USB or RS232/RS485.

Step 3: Run Demos

Demos are a quick and easy way to evaluate a device and offer a development starting point.

Follow these simple steps:

1. Plug the MCU Starter Kit to a host that has Simplicity Studio, ensure the switch is set to AEM

2. Attach the isolation expansion board to the 20 pin header

3. Open Simpicity Studio

4. Select Demos
