Tech Consultant Zach Peterson examines grounding in mixed-signal systems that require isolation. Oftentimes, such a system is found in battery-powered systems with sensors and connections to other devices. Zach explores how to place ground in such a system using both an Isolated ADC method and an Optocoupler method, then details examples in Altium Designer.
