DC/DC Converters with Reduced Case Size
RECOM Power Laboratory announced the RP15-SAW 15W DC/DC module. The device measures 1" × 1", 50 percent the industry standard size. The device features efficiency grades up to 87 percent and trouble free operation at ambient temperatures exceeding 60°C, without external cooling measures (packing density reaches 2.3W/cm3). The outputs are trimmable in the range ±10 percent of nominal output voltage - a remote ON/OFF function enables external ON/OFF switching. Electrical specifications are as follows: 2:1 inputs 9V to 18V, 18V to 36Vand 36V to 75V as well as 4:1 input ranges 9V to 36V, 18V to 75V. Output voltages are set at 3,3V, 5V, 12V and 15V. The output rating is 15W, the isolation voltage 1600V DC. The casing consists of 6-sided nickel coated copper material. Vacuum potting qualifies these converters for the most stringent temperature and vibration conditions. OEM-volume prices range from $23.89 for converters with 2:1 inputs to $26.27 for converters with 4:1 inputs.
