1W Single Output DC-DC Converters

Murata Power Solutions has introduced a new series of high performance isolated 1W single output DC-DC converters that offer high efficiency levels and full-load performance across the industrial temperature range. The MER1 series provides excellent regulation for applications such as providing local power on control system boards and other applications where wide output voltage variations cannot be tolerated.

The comprehensive MER1 range offers designers a choice of five input voltages ranging from 5V to 48V and output voltages of 5V, 9V, 12V or 15V. Typical efficiency levels are up to 89% and operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C. Galvanic isolation of 1kVDC helps to reduce switching noise.

Housed in a compact industry-standard pinout package measuring 19.65mm (0.774in.) x 6.15mm (0.242in.) x 10.15mm (0.4in.), the new DC/DC converters are RoHS compliant and utilize UL 94V-0 package materials. The fully encapsulated design uses toroidal magnetic technology and requires no external components. The space saving benefits of the MER1 series are further enhanced as no external heatsinking or tantalum and electrolytic capacitors are required.

Prices at OEM quantities start at US$4.20, and lead-times are from stock to 10 weeks.
