SI8660 with shorted GNDs

I want to build a device with SI8660 isolator that can be used either in isolated or non-isolated mode (with GND1 and GND2 shorted externally, e.g. at power supply). Will the SI8660 work in non-isolated mode or will it have its outputs latched in default state?

Re: SI8660 with shorted GNDs

All Isolators including Si8660 can be used either in isolated ( isolated VDD1/GND1, and VDD2/GND2 ) or non-isolated mode (one VDD/GND for both sides).
