XP Power announced the launch of its IM and IT series of 2 and 3 Watt board mounted regulated dc-dc converters. Encapsulated in a plastic non-conductive SIP format package, measuring 1.02 x 0.49 x 0.36 inches (26.0 x 12.5 x 9.3 mm) the devices offer an extra wide 4:1 input range and an input to output isolation of 1.5kV for up to 1 minute. They are ideal for use in mobile, portable and wireless products where board space is at a premium and designers seek to reduce the size of their end product.
Together the IM series, rated at 2 Watts, and the IT series, rated at 3 Watts, provide a total of 28 variants. Covering the nominal input voltages of 12, 24 and 48 VDC, each series offers either 9 - 36 VDC or 18 - 75 VDC input ranges. Within each range single and dual output versions are available. Single output models provide +3.3, 5, 12 or 15 VDC while the dual output units offer ±5, ±12 or ±15 VDC. All outputs are fully regulated to within ±0.5% over all input conditions and to less than ±0.5% over all load conditions from 10 - 100% load. A remote on/off function allows an external signal to control the converter.
The units can operate, without any additional heat sinking or forced airflow, from -40°C to +100°C. Full power output is available up to +75°C and with derating up to the maximum case temperature of +100°C. These highly reliable dc-dc converters have an MTBF in excess of 1.2 million hours as defined by MIL-HDBK-217F calculations.
Prices range from $12.87 each for a 500pc order of the single output IM series to $18.72 for a 500pc order of the dual output IT series. They are available in stock direct from XP Power.
