Mini DC/DC Converters Achieve Footprint Reduction
XP Power announced its JCA series of miniature, board-mounted low power DC/DC converters that measure 1" × 0.8" × 0.4". The device’s shielded metal package is 0.25" shorter than the 1.25" industry norm. Using the customary 24-pin DIP layout, the units occupy 20 percent less printed circuit board area than traditional products, allowing designers to reduce the size of new developments or add more features while maintaining the industry standard pin-out. The converter is a suitable drop-in replacement for existing designs. Suitable for a variety of application environments, the converters operate from -40°C to +100°C with derating above +75°C. No additional heat sinking or forced air cooling is required. The maximum case temperature is +100°C.
