The noise source from T-CON interferes with the DC supply loop between the DC-to-DC converter and the source driver IC.
Conversions from ac take place using linear and switch-mode power supplies (SWPS) and dc-to-dc converters either externally, in the form of dongles or wall-warts, or internally as part of the circuitry.
ADI's isoPower integrated, isolated dc-to-dc converter uses the same chip-scale transformer technology, but instead of transmitting data, isoPower employs switches, rectifiers, and regulators to generate power that is isolated to the same degree as the data channels.
The overall amplifier structure employing the DC-to-DC converter is shown in Figure 7.
