Smyrna, Ga. Murata Electronics North America has launched its MPDTY201S miniature dc/dc converter. Designed with a small footprint (11.4 x 8.9 x 5.6 mm) in a surface-mount package to reduce board space, the dc/dc converter offers high efficiency across the industrial operating temperature range in order to minimize power consumption. Targeting distributed power architectures in telecommunications and datacommunications markets, the converter is also well-suited for base stations, routers, FTTx, computer servers, instrumentation and test equipment.
The MPDTY201S achieves high efficiency thanks to synchronous rectification and reduces board space through the use of advanced ceramic and ferrite technologies, Murata said. Requiring only small external ceramic capacitors on the output, the MPDTY201S point-of-load converter also offers a wide input voltage range, an adjustable output voltage and remote on/off switch control. The converter also includes an output voltage sense function.
Key specifications include Vin of 3.0 to 5.5 volts, Vout of 0.8 to 2.5 volts, and maximum power of 7.5 watts. The operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C. The converter also features built-in protection circuits including UVLO, over-current protection, and over-temperature protection. The device is lead free and meets RoHS 6/6 requirements.
Pricing: $3.12 in volume quantities.
Availability: The MPDTY201S is in production and samples are available now. Delivery for volume quantities is 8 to 12 weeks.
