Global power supply manufacturer TDK-Lambda has announced its latest high density, cost-effective, DC-DC converter family with the introduction of the new CC-P-E Series. These are ultra compact, fully isolated converters that feature wide range DC inputs (24V or 48V nominal) which make them suitable for telecom, datacom, distributed power, battery operated devices, FPGA, and process control applications. Available with output voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V or 15Vdc, with output power ratings of 15 or 30-watts, these fully-regulated, high efficiency (92% typical) converters can be paralleled for higher power applications, says TDK-Lambda.
