DC/DC modular power supplies
February 15, 2013 by Alison Dunn
Designed as a cost effective solution for digital applications, Aimtec has released 13 new series of DC/DC modular switching power supplies in 3 watt to 6 watt output power ranges. Distinguished by the letter V in their suffix, the new line of DIP24 packaged devices feature RCC (Ringing Choke Converter) topology with variable switching frequencies versus PWM (Pulse Wave Modulation) topology as with fixed switching frequency found in Aimtec’s other DIP24 products. Input voltage choices range from 4.5 to 72 VDC with a ratio of either 2:1 or 4:1. Single or dual output voltage choices range from 3.3 to 24 VDC with input / output isolation of either 1.5K or 3.5K VDC. All models feature continuous short circuit protection and an effective operating temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius with derating with efficiency rates as high as 82 per cent.
