DC/DC converters in DIP-16 package offer high power density

XP Power has announced two series of fully isolated DC/DC converters in a compact DIP-16 package, offering a high power density of up to 50W/in3. With two ultra-wide input voltage ranges, they are ideal for any application that requires through-hole mount DC/DC converters compliant with global Information Technology Equipment (ITE) safety approvals IEC60950-1 and UL/cUL60950-1.

Using the latest design techniques, the JWE06 (6W total output power) and JWE08 (8W total output power) DC/DC converters offer 1500VDC isolation with single or dual output voltages. Both ranges offer devices with either 3.3, 5, 12, 15 or 24VDC single, and ±12V or ±15VDC dual outputs. Each series is able to operate from two wide input voltage ranges; 9-36V and 18-75V, with up to 87% efficiency. All models feature undervoltage lockout.

All devices in both series meet EN55032 Level A EMI standards, meaning no additional external filtering is required. This can save both PCB space and BoM cost. They also feature an extended operating temperature range of -40 to +105°C, with no derating or forced air cooling required up to +70°C. The JWE06 and JWE08 series have zero minimum load requirements and achieve a typical line regulation of ±0.2% and load regulation of ±0.5%. For dual output models, cross regulation is a maximum of ±5.0% for load variation on one output of between 25% and 100% while the other output is fixed at 100%.

The industry-standard DIP-16 metal cased package measures just 23.8×13.7×8.0mm. This level of integration offers developers the opportunity to reduce overall PCB area or add additional features into existing product profiles.

These class-leading features coupled with their small outline, excellent isolation and industry standard safety compliance make the JWE06 and JWE08 DC-DC converters ideal for a wide range of applications including automation and process control, broadcast, fixed and mobile telecommunications, networking and data-communications, as well as instrumentation and specialist equipment.

The series are available from Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and come with a 3-year warranty.
