400 W 1/8th Brick DC-DC Converters Support PMBus

Murata has announced the introduction of its DSE Series, a fully isolated, 12 Vout, 400 W eighth brick DC-DC converter with a DOSA compliant digital interface to support the PMBus standard for communication and control. The Series, which also includes DAE and DCE products, has a droop load sharing option for paralleling up to three modules in some of the most power demanding applications. Further, the series meets the international TNV standard for Input Voltage with a 36-75 Vin range and provides 2250 VDC isolation for use in Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications.

The DSE series offers advanced power conversion technology, including a 32-bit Arm processor that controls critical conversion functions and delivers a digital interface for use in the end system application. The PMBus digital interface can be used to customize the modules’ configuration for specific functions and presents system engineers with critical telemetry information.

Multiple pin configurations are available, as the DSE provides a DOSA standard digital eighth brick pinout with sense, trim, and PMBus. The DAE provides a DOSA analog eighth brick pinout with sense and trim (no PMBus). The DCE is a DOSA analog eighth brick in the traditional 5-pin package. Target applications include telecommunications, networking, wireless, pre-amplifiers, industrial and test equipment.

2 W DC-DC Converters Offer Compact Open-Frame SMD Package

RECOM has announced its R2SX series of compact 2W DC/DC converters suited for bus isolation and a wide range of industrial automation control equipment. Their low profile and compact 15.24 mm x 11.1 mm x 8.0 mm footprint saves space in your PCB design. The R2SX is an open-frame 2W SMD isolated DC/DC converter with either 3 kVDC/ 1 minute isolation (/H version) or 1 kVDC/ 1 minute isolation options. The modules are available with 5V or 24V inputs, offer a single unregulated 3.3 V, 5 V, 15 V, or 2 4 V output and can reach up to 86% efficiency. There is no minimum load requirement and the efficiency stays high over a wide 20% to 100% load range.

The operating temperature is from -40°C up to +75°C at full load, and up to +100°C with derating. The converters are fully certified to IEC/EN/UL62368-1 and are 10/10 RoHS-conform. A simple low cost LC filter is all that is needed for Class B EMC compliance. The R2SX comes with a 3-year warranty. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from RECOM.
