XP Power announced three SIP packaged 1 Watt DC-DC converters with both single and dual output models. Aimed at applications requiring a high performance DC-DC converter, the products feature industry standard pinouts and offer an increased efficiency, higher isolation, and a wider operating temperature range than previous products.
The ITA, ITB and ITV series converters provide an unregulated output in a small, industry standard, plastic cased SIP-7 package, allowing drop in replacement capability for improved performance without redesign. ITA and ITB series converters feature 1,500VDC input / output isolation, with the ITV boasting an isolation of 3,000VDC.
With their small size, the most important application areas for the converters are in mobile, portable and wireless products or indeed when isolation or DC-DC voltage conversion is needed in any product. Such products are used in automation and process control, broadcast, fixed telecom, instrumentation, networking/datacom/computing, mobile comms and transport industries.
Measuring in at a small 19.5 x 6.0 x 10.0 mm (0.76 x 0.24 x 0.39 inches) the converters offer a good power density of 14 Watts per cubic inch. They take up less PCB space allowing designers more room to add extra features, alternatively they can reduce the overall size of the end product.
