Low Cost 8W DC-DC Converters Feature 1”x1” Package

RECOM announces its REC8E range of low cost, 8W DC/DC converters in a 1”x1” package with three input ranges including 20-60VDC to suit 48V Li-ion batteries and LV 148 applications. The converters are specially designed for battery-powered applications. Three input voltage ranges are available: 9-18V (12V systems), 18-36V (24V systems) and 20V-60V (48V systems), the latter matching the LV 148 requirements for 48V Li-ion voltages in vehicles.

To avoid a damaging deep discharge, under-voltage lockout is included to automatically switch off the converter if the battery voltage falls below safe levels. Fully protected output voltages are available: 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 24, +/-12V and +/-15V. All outputs are tightly regulated and can drive high capacitive loads over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +75°C without derating. An on/off control pin is fitted as standard to reduce the supply current to less than 0.7mA in shutdown mode.

EMI from the REC8E is very low, with only simple, low-cost external components required for compliance with EN 55032 class A or B emission limits. Isolation rating is 1.6kV/1 minute, and the devices are certified to UL/IEC/EN 62368-1. The REC8E is available in an industry-standard 1”x1” low profile, non-metallic package, suitable for use in high density PCBs. The REC8E suits 48V Li-ion inputs in e-mobility as well as in general industry and test and measurement applications, says RECOM.
