LTM2893-95 block diagram

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTM2893 and LTM2895, SPI (serial peripheral interface) µModule isolators, optimised for Linear Technology’s range of high-performance data converters. The LTM2893 and LTM2895 support SPI clock speeds up to 100MHz, more than doubling the effective 40MHz limit of existing digital isolators and enabling the use of higher resolution and higher speed data converters while maintaining zero latency operation. With a fast SPI interface, 6,000VRMS of galvanic isolation, and additional high-speed control signals, the LTM2893 and LTM2895 require no external components and provide a simple µModule solution for isolated data converter communications.

The LTM2893 (read only) and LTM2893-1 (read/write) are designed to isolate Linear Technology’s general purpose successive approximation register (SAR) analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs), including the LTC2378 family of 20-, 18- and 16-bit 1Msps SAR ADCs or the LTC2348 range of octal, 18- and 16-bit 200ksps/channel simultaneous sampling SAR ADCs. Additional high-speed control signals provide support for parallel or chain-connected configurations, as well as analogue multiplexers or programmable gain amplifiers. Configurable word length allows SPI access to be tailored to a specific ADC to maximise throughput.  With only 30psRMS of additive jitter from input to output, the LTM2893 and LTM2893-1 minimise signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) degradation in ADCs due to jitter.

The LTM2895 is designed to isolate Linear Technology’s general purpose digital-to-analog converters (DACs), including the unipolar LTC2641 range or bipolar LTC2642 range of 16-/14-/12-bit unbuffered voltage output DACs.  Additional high-speed control signals provide support for dual channel, dual DAC, or host-to-host (i.e., FPGA to isolated FPGA with page mode data transfer) configurations, while a configurable word length allows SPI access to be tailored to a specific DAC to maximise throughput.  A low 30psRMS jitter /LOAD signal path is also available for DACs with an asynchronous LOAD input.

The LTM2893, LTC2893-1 and LTM2895 are housed in a low-profile 15 x 6.25 x 2.06mm surface mount BGA package; all integrated circuits and passive components are housed in this RoHS-compliant μModule package. All devices are available in commercial, industrial and automotive versions, supporting operating temperature ranges from 0°C to 70°C, –40°C to 85°C and –40°C to 125°C, respectively. The LTM2893 and LTM2893-1 are available now in production quantities, and the LTM2895 will be available later this year.  Pricing starts at $8.95 each in 1,000-piece quantities. The LTM2893, LTM2893-1 and LTM2895 join a range of µModule isolators that includes isolated RS485, RS232, USB, CAN, I²C, and GPIO.
