Stoughton, Mass. MicroPower Direct has introduced the DM100E series of miniature 1-W dc/dc converters housed in 6-pin SIP packages, occupying a 0.15-sq. inch footprint ( 0.65 x 0.23) with a 0.3-inch profile.
Available in single and dual outputs, the DM100E series offers twelve models that operate from 5 Vdc and 12 Vdc inputs, providing outputs of 5, 12, 15, ±5, ±12, or ±15 Vdc. Standard features include an input/output isolation of 1,000 Vdc, an internal filter, efficiency as high as 81% and low noise operation. The MTBF (per MIL HDBK 217F) is greater than 3.5 Mhours.
Each model is specified for operation over the industrial operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C ambient. No derating or heat sinking is required over this range. Cooling is provided by free-air convection.
The DM100E series is suitable for a variety of board-level power applications including industrial process systems, medical equipment and instrumentation, data processing equipment, robotic systems and power distribution subsystems. All models meet RoHS requirements. The devices are part of the company's "Cost Cutter" series of products.
