Eighth brick converters target high density embedded applications

Eighth brick converters target high density embedded applications

Murata Power Solutions has announced the UWE series of 100 to 120W open frame isolated DOSA compatible eighth brick dc/dc converters designed for embedded computing applications and instrumentation subsystems.

Using an industry standard through hole package measuring 58.42 x 22.86 x 9.91mm (2.3 x 0.9 x 0.39in), the single output units offer the nominal outputs of 3.3, 5 or 12VDC. The series is said to have an efficiency of 91.5%, meaning forced airflow is not required for most applications.

The converters operate from –40 to 8°C and accommodate a wide 4:1 input voltage range from 18 to 75VDC around a nominal 48VDC. Line regulation is kept within +/- 0.25%Vout and load regulation is maximum +/- 0.2%Vout across the complete range.
