Stoughton, Mass. - The single and dual output DC/DC converters in MicroPower Direct's B1000ERW series, an addition to the company's Budget Saver family, are promoted as the lowest cost 10-watt modules of their type. Priced at from $9.75 to $10.40 each in quantities of 100, these 1-by-2 inch converters, in eighteen models, provide 5, 12, 15, and ±5, ±12, and ±15 volts from a 9-18, 18-36, or 36-75 volt input.
Features include a line regulation of better than ±0.2 percent, load regulation of 0.5 percent (positive output) and 5 percent (negative output), and maximum ripple and noise of 50 mV p-p. Transient response is typically 200 microseconds for a 25 percent load change and a return to within ±2 percent of nominal output voltage.
Operating efficiency is as high as 86 percent. Input-to-output isolation is 1,500 VDC. The converters' MTBF is greater than 1 million hours as tested per MIL HDBK 217F. These converters are specified for operation over -40 to +71°C with no derating or heat sinking required. Cooling is by free-air convection.
