Dengrove adds space-saving DC/DC converters from Recom
They are designed for applications that require high power density and high efficiency and have power ratings from 3.3W to 30W.
They comply with the industry standard DOSA footprint (12.19 x 12.19mm) and are available with rated output current of 1.0A, 2.0A, 3.0A, or 6.0A. Using a control IC and multi-layer board design is claimed to result in class-leading power density of up to 800W/in3 as well as allow use in space-constrained applications.
Maximum efficiency is between 97-99%, for operation at full load in ambient temperatures up to 107°C without forced air cooling. The converters are packaged in a metal can with integrated ground plane for effective six-sided shielding for minimal noise emissions, says the distributor. They are also EN 55032-compliant.
Other characteristics are flexible control and trimming options, pins for power-good, on-off control and sequencing with programmable output rise time to simplify powering-up converters simultaneously or in a pre-defined sequence. The nominal output voltage of 3.3V or 5.0V can be trimmed up or down using a single external resistor. There is also programmable soft-start control.
The distributor also stocks Recom evaluation boards for the RPM series for test, development and prototyping.
The DC-DC converters are available now as surface mount modules with land grid array (LGA) contacts.
