Surface mount switching DC-DC converter has 95 per cent efficiency
CUI has launched its first four contact, surface mount, non-isolated DC-DC converter module.
The ultra-thin VXO78-500-M has a 500mA output current, no-load input current as low as 0.2mA and a wide -40 to +85°C temperature range. The regulated DC-DC converter offers a wide 4.75 to 36 Vdc input voltage range, short-circuit protection and 4-SMD reflow solderability in an SMT package with half-vias corners.
Unlike linear regulators, the switching regulator has an efficiency up to 95 per cent for applications where board space is at a premium and maximizing energy efficiency is a concern. General applications for the VXO78-500-M include commercial IT systems, controls and electronics that require a wide input at a low cost. It is certified to the UL/EN/IEC 62368 standards.
The VXO78-500-M is available immediately from stock with a 9 week lead time with prices starting at $2.52 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution.
