Power Consumption Calculator

Isoloop® IL700 series devices by NVE Corporation achieve low power consumption from the manner by which they transmit data across the isolation barrier. By detecting the edge transitions of the input logic signal and converting these to narrow current pulses a magnetic field is created around the GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance) Wheatstone bridge. Since the current pulses are narrow the power consumption is independent of mark-to-space ratio and solely dependent on frequency. The calculator below calculates the current consumption of IsoLoop devices.

Enter values below and the result will automatically be calculated.
