Reinforced isolated amplifier has high reliability, performance level and longer lifespan

30-06-2016 | Texas Instruments | Power

Texas Instruments has introduced a reinforced isolated amplifier with high reliability, low power consumption, high DC accuracy and improved overall efficiency compared to competitive devices. The AMC1301 is the newest addition to the company’s reinforced isolation portfolio, which features high working voltage specifications. With the low offset drift of 3uV/C over a wide temperature range, -40C to 125C, the device delivers the most accurate solution for shunt-based current sensing in high-voltage equipment, such as industrial motor drives, solar inverters, battery management systems and uninterruptible power supplies.

The company offers the following tools to help designers quickly select, evaluate and design with the new AMC1301 reinforced isolated amplifier: A TINA-TI SPICE model and TINA-TI reference design are available for the device to help designers verify board-level signal-integrity requirements. The AMC1301EVM evaluation module enables engineers to quickly and easily evaluate device features and performance to help speed time to market. A reference design is available, which allows designers to use the device to jump-start design of a cost-efficient reinforced isolated power stage in three-phase inverters, with the benefits of reduced power supply requirements and protection against DC bus under- and over-voltage. Technical support for it is available in the TI E2E Community Precision Amplifier forum, where engineers can search for solutions, get help, share knowledge and solve problems with fellow engineers and TI experts.

The amplifier joins their broad isolation portfolio which combines high isolation and performance for next-generation industrial and automotive systems that demand the highest voltages, reliability, immunity and performance.
