2W DC-DC converters occupies under 1.25 sq cm

January 26, 2017 // By Nick Flaherty
A series of 2W DC-DC modules from RECOM come in six-pin SMD open-frame packages with a footprint of less than 1/3 sq in (1.25 sq cm).

The RTC2 family supports 2:1 inputs voltage ranges of 4.5 to 9VDC or 18 to 36VDC and can handle up to 15VDC and 50VDC respectively for up to 100ms . The converters are insulated up to 3kVDC/1s, and reach efficiencies over 80%.

The 5V output versions will be the first to be launched on the market with additional outputs to be released at a later date. The modules are regulated at ±2% accuracy, with a tight line regulation of ±0.5% and load regulation of ±0.5%.  They are short-circuit protected, and operate under natural convection at temperature ranges of -40°C to +85°C (24V version) without derating.

The new modules comply with the RoHS guideline and are certified according to IEC/EN 62368-1 and EN 55022/24. The MTBF is more than 2 x 10 6 hours at 25°C according to MIL-HDBK 217F. The converters come with a three-year guarantee, and samples are available via RECOM’s network of distribution channels.
