DC/DC converters provide more power output in the same space
Comprised of four models with nominal input voltages of +5 or +12VDC and outputs of +5, +12 or +15VDC, the NXE2 series of 2W SMT DC/DC converters have been announced by Murata Power Solutions. Footprint compatible with similar 1 and 2W devices available and measuring just 12.5x4.36x10.41mm, the NXE2 series provides more power output in the same space.
The converter is constructed using fully automated techniques in a halogen free iLGA inspectable package with an integrated transformer. This approach increases product reliability and repeatability of converter performance.
The NXE2 series suits use in industrial automation, instrumentation and transportation equipment. It is also suitable for use in telecomms, wireless and medical designs that require a low power isolated DC voltage such as an isolated communications interface for example. Input to output isolation of 3kVDC is standard across the range.
Ann-Marie Bayliss, Product Marketing Manager, Murata Power Solutions, commented: “The NXE2 series represents a 2W halogen free converter in a footprint that has a 50% lower profile.”
Certification to UL60950 and medical safety is pending.
