Accepting an input of 5 VDC or 12 VDC, the 1-W AM1L-NZ and 2-W AM2L-NZ DC/DC converters can step up or step down to dual separated outputs of 5/5, 9/9, 12/12 or 15/15 VDC. The configuration allows for rapid load changes on the two outputs (from 10% to 100% load current) without any degradation to load regulation of either output.
