Si8920 Isolated Amplifier
The Silicon Labs Si8920 is a galvanically isolated analog amplifier ideal for measuring voltage across a current shunt resistor or for any place where a sensor must be isolated from the control system. Our amplifier family offers low voltage and differential input while providing higher performance, reduced variation with temperature and age, tighter part-to-part matching, and longer lifetimes compared to other isolation technologies.
The very low signal delay of the Si8920 allows control systems to respond quickly to fault conditions or changes in load. Low offset and gain drift ensure accuracy is maintained over the entire operating temperature range. Exceptionally high common mode transient immunity enables the Si8920 to deliver accurate measurements even in the presence of high power switching, such as in motor drive system or inverter applications.
The Si8920 isolated amplifier utilizes our proprietary isolation technology and supports up to 5.0 kVrms withstand voltage per UL1577. The output is a differential analog signal amplified by either 8.1x or 16.2x.
