Rutronik adds Recom’s RPX DC/DC converters

Recom’s RPX DC/DC converters are available in QFN packages and Q variants to meet the requirements of the automotive industry according to AEC-Q100 Grade 1. They have now been added to the Rutronik linecard. The RPX DC/DC converters can also be equipped with wettable flanks for automated optical inspection (AOI). 

The RPX-0.5Q (0.5A) and the RPX-1.5Q (1.5 A) converters are supplied in a 3.0 x 5.0 x 1.6mm housing. pThe small, lead-free and thermally housing is optimised for operation with derating up to 100 degrees C and above ambient temperature. 

The RPX series has the required inductance already integrated. For full functionality, only external input and output capacitors adapted to the respective application are required, advised Rutronik. On / off control and synchronisation inputs are equipped with a power-good output. The input voltage range of the converters is up to 36V. Output can be trimmed from 0.8 to 30V.

The over-moulded flip-chip-on-leadframe (FCOL) construction ensures the lowest thermal resistance of the enclosure, claimed Rutronik. This also makes it possible to keep manufacturing and end product prices low, added the company. It also minimises EMI, said Rutronik.

The DC/DC converters are equipped with a soft start function, as well as full short-circuit, over-current, over-temperature and input under-voltage protection. A fixed frequency operation allows easy implementation of the required additional filtering.
