I fully agree with the above statements concerning the benefits of digital couplers over optocouplers. However, Guy missed to mention the existance and additional benefts of other digital isolator technologies, like the capacitive coupling technology of Texas Instruments, based on silicon-oxide as isolation-material and as such an anorganic isolator, further enhancing lifetime reliablity.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
