Murata recently announced the MTC1 Series of 1-watt regulated single output DC-DC converters manufactured by Murata Power Solutions. The MTC1 Series comprises a total of six single output models providing 3.3, 5, or 12 VDC. These miniature isolated devices are available with nominal input voltages of 12 or 24 VDC and accommodate a 2:1 input range around the selected nominal.
No additional regulation components are required since the MTC1 output is fully regulated to within ±0.5% of stated output. A voltage trim pin allows adjustment of the output voltage by ±10% to suit any special voltage requirements. A remote on/off pin provides the ability to disable the output for application power saving.
Input to output isolation conforms to the international safety insulation standard UL60950 (pending). With its certification (pending) to the medical safety standard ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1 for 2 MOOPs, the converter is suitable for use in a wide range of medical and healthcare applications. Occupying 34% less PCB area than competing parts, the MTC1 can operate up to 100°C with derating.
