App note: Safety considerations for Silicon Labs series capacitor isolators

Great in-depth about electronic isolators from Silicon Labs. Link here (PDF)

Isolators are widely used in automotive, telecom, industrial, and medical applications to provide protection for people and/or equipment from high voltage hazards. The robustness of the isolator’s insulation, or “isolation barrier”, over the operating life of the equipment is key to ensuring safety against electric shock in these applications.
