Isolated power supplies generally include either transformers or optical isolators in both the power and the feedback paths. As a result, isolated power supplies are generally more complex in their design than nonisolated power supplies. Maxim's isolated power ICs accommodate the necessary isolation components, thereby reducing design complexity and cost.
Transformer drivers are useful in building low complexity, isolated low-power DC-DC supplies.
