The RAC03-K AC/DC converter, from RECOM, was designed to be the smallest 3 W solution on the market. It is a versatile converter that can be used in a wide range of applications due to complete certifications for ITE and household standards.
Silicon's ability to harvest energy from heat can be greatly increased while remaining mass-producible.
DC/DC converters are used in almost every industrial, medical and transport installation, from low-power test and measurement through to high-power motor driver applications.
The 3 W series offers both 4:1 and 2:1 ultrawide input voltage ranges, in surface mount and DIP mounting, with 1500 VDC isolation voltage and efficiencies up to 83%.
Technology Dynamics has introduced the TTST-5000 Series of high DC input voltage DC-DC converters. The series features an input range of 375–420 VDC, making it suitable for harsh industrial, railway, military, automation, specialty vehicle, scientific and telecom applications.
RECOM has introduced a new series of DC-DC converter modules which are compatible with the DOSA footprint, and which operate at very high efficiency of up to 99% to enable operation without a heat-sink.
The latest entries in Vicor's DCM family are available in the 3623 (36 x 23 mm) ChiP (Converter housed in Package) format with a power density of 63 W/cm3.
Technology Dynamics' NTDC series of high-power DC-DC converters provides highly regulated DC output power from 2000–3000 W.
RECOM's REC15E-Z series of 15 W isolated DC/DC converters features wide input ranges in a 1″ x 1″ case size. This is intended to save PCB space, while the wide input ranges increase flexibility by accepting several standard bus voltages.
MORNSUN has added four series of DC converters, all with dual isolated regulated outputs, to the R3 DC/DC wide-input converter family.
The 10 W URB_S-10WR3 and VRB_S-10WR3 series DC/DC converters offer a 4:1 and 2:1 wide input voltage range (9–36 V) and are available with regulated output voltages of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 and 24 VDC.
RECOM has released the RKZE series, a solution for applications that require high isolation and operate in wide temperature ranges.
MORNSUN's switching regulator K78xx-2000R3 series is rated at 2 A in addition to the non-isolated DC-DC converter range and designed as a drop-in alternative for traditional 78xx series three-terminal linear regulators.
Although it has been known for some time that modular DC/DC converters offer greater efficiency and reliability, their high costs have prevented manufacturers from including them in their designs — especially where large numbers of converters were required.
Mornsun's R3 series fixed input DC converters offer solutions to common issues with power supply design.
