DOSA-footprint DC/DC converters up to 30W maximise power density and efficiency

SCSFor applications that require high power density and high efficiency, Dengrove Electronic Components is stocking RECOM RPM3.3 and RPM5.0 non-isolated DC/DC converters in power ratings from 3.3W to 30W.

Compliant with the industry-standard 12.19mm x 12.19mm DOSA footprint, the 3.3V and 5.0V modules are available with rated output current of 1.0A, 2.0A, 3.0A, or 6.0A. Featuring an advanced control IC and multi-layer board design they are only 3.75mm high, resulting in class-leading power density of up to 800W/in3 and allowing use in space-constrained applications.

Very high maximum efficiency, between 97-99%, permits operation at full load in ambient temperatures up to 107°C without forced-air cooling thereby helping to simplify design and enhance system reliability. Packaged in a metal can and featuring a ground plane integrated in the bottom-side PCB, RPM converters have effective six-sided shielding for minimal noise emissions and are EN 55032 compliant.

In addition to their excellent all-round performance, the converters offer flexible control and trimming options. Pins for Power-good, On-off Control, and Sequencing with programmable output rise time simplify powering-up converters simultaneously or in a pre-defined sequence. The nominal output voltage of 3.3V or 5.0V can be trimmed up or down using a single external resistor, and programmable soft-start control is also provided.

Also in stock are RECOM evaluation boards for the RPM series to help customers quickly test the modules and begin development and prototyping.

The RPM series DC/DC converters are available now as surface-mount modules with Land Grid Array (LGA) contacts.
