NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit USB Isolator – 100mA Isolated Low/Full Speed USB


Have some USB logic analyzer, multimeter or oscilloscope and bumping up against the frustation of a shared earth ground? The Offspring (known for being electrical engineers) wisely sang “Ya gotta keep’em isolated!” Power and signal isolation improves common-mode voltage, enhances noise rejection, and permits two circuits to operate at different voltage levels.

This handy little low-cost USB isolator is exactly what you need to provide protection against harmful noise, ground loops, surges, and spikes. Works with any 1.5Mbps (low speed) or 12Mbps (full speed) USB device. Not for high speed USB devices, often used for video cameras (check your product to make sure its low/full compatible.) Based on Analog Device’s USB isolators.

It is particularly useful when paired with USB testing instruments, you need to separate or isolate your eath ground (thru the USB connector to the computer to the power plug) from your circuit for high voltage, accident-protection, or floating ground needs. Best of all, this USB isolator even has its own isolated 5V power supply that can supply 100mA, making it perfect for your BitScope Micro USB! Protect your computer or laptop, use one of these in between your ports.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
