ISO7341C: Need of pull up on I2C line ?

Part Number: ISO7341C

Hi team,

ISO7341C will be used between PSE(TPS23861) and MCU for I2C interface. Can you please review below schematic?

 -. Does it need pull up resistor on I2C line?

 -. ISO7341C port is open drain or push pull?

 

 

 

Thanks,

Sam Lee

  • Hi Sam,

    The schematic looks fine. Just a one comment.

    Although the EN can be left floating, I would still recommend tying EN1 to VCC1 and EN2 to VCC2 using 4.7k resistors, instead of leaving them floating as in the schematic. This would help improve the EMI/EMC performance of the system.

    I am not sure why the bidirectional I2C communication is implemented using a digital isolator in this system. Could you please clarify?
    We have an isolated I2C device which can be used directly without any additional circuitry. ISO1540 / ISO1541. Any reason this is not considered for this application?

    Regarding your other concerns, I would recommend taking a look at the app note Designing I2C using Digital Isolator. This should explain the circuitry required when using a digital isolator as an I2C.
    ISO7341C is push pull architecture output.

    Hi Anand,

    Thank you for your review. The reason why ISO7341 is used rather than ISO1540 is because PSE(TPS23861) needs 3ch for I2C interface.

    Thanks,
