Elektor Labs are forever working on new projects and ideas. At the moment I am working on a USB isolating circuit. Besides isolating its data lines, it is also important to isolate its supply lines. Because the USB is DC powered, a traditional isolation transformer can not be used. I reverted to an isolated flyback converter instead. This solution also required a transformer, albeit a small one.
