XP Power shrinks ITZ series DC/DC converters for mobile use
Claimed to be the industry’s smallest regulated and isolated 9.0W DC/DC converters, the ITZ series offers a 4:1 input range. XP Power announced the ITZ series of compact, regulated 9.0W DC/DC converters, which it believes are the industry’s smallest 9.0W DC/DC converters. They accommodate an ultra-wide 4:1 input and are available with single and dual outputs. Packaged in an ultra-compact metal-cased SIP-8 package measuring just 21.9 x 11.2 x 9.6mm (0.86 x 0.44 x 0.38 inches), the converters are up to 89 per cent efficient and have a power density of 44W per cubic inch.
Together with high efficiency, the converters do not neeed additional heat sink components or forced airflow, ensuring that the converter occupies the smallest footprint possible, says XP Power, noting that this is a key criteria of today’s space-constrained designs.
The series offers input range options of either +9.0 to +36V DC or +18 to +75V DC, covering all the popular nominal input voltages of +12, +24 and +48V DC. Single output models are available with +3.3, +5.0, +9.0, +12, +15, or +24V DC. Dual output models provide ±5, ±12 or ±15V DC. No minimum load is required.
Input to output isolation is rated at 1.5kV DC across the range, and optionally, 3kV DC isolation is available on ‘H’ models. Suitable for use in most environments, the ITZ series can operate across the extended temperature range from -40 to +85 degrees C and deliver the full output power up to +60 degrees. A remote on/off function enables the user to externally control the converter, such as for sequencing start-up or automatically powering it on or off. All model meets EN55032 level A for conducted and radiated noise without any additional components.
Typical applications for the ITZ series include mobile, portable and wireless products, and any low power use case where isolation and DC voltage conversion is required.
The series is available directly for XP Power, and from approved regional distributors, Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components. They all carry a three-year warranty.
