MSC – Tiny DC-DC converters supply 0.75V to 5V at up to 16A (04D-12-16)Dec 30 2009 - Power [More Power Articles]
The YDS 04D-12-16 series non-isolating DC-DC converters are now available in SMD (33mm x 13.5mm x 7.7mm) and SIP package (50.8mm x 12.7mm x 7.2mm), from MSC Vertriebs.
Both ranges offer identical electric specifications. They accept an input voltage of 12 V (8.3V to 14V) and convert it into a user programmable output voltage of 0.75V to 5V that provides a load current of 16A. The 04D-12-16 converters, now available at MSC Vertriebs GmbH, have an efficiency of 92% that remains almost the same with partial loads down to 40%.
The 04D-12-16 series has built-in under-voltage lockout and short-circuit protection. In addition the 04D-12-16 features an on-board input filter, an input reflected ripple current of just 30mApp, a line regulation of ±0,3%, a load regulation of ±0,4% and a low output ripple and noise of 30′mV.
The specifications also include an ‘excellent’ dynamic load response and an MTBF rating of 6.704 x 105 hours according to MIL-HDBK-217F. The 04D-12-16 has remote sense and remote on/off.
Typical applications are distributed power supplies, network equipment, data communication systems, embedded computers and industrial controls. Compared to linear regulators power dissipation is reduced dramatically, says the company.More news from MSC
