A New Approach to Circuit Breaker Design Using Silicon Carbide Switches - Nov 21
Mechanical circuit breakers can be low cost with minimal losses, but they operate slowly and wear out. Solid state versions overcome the problems and are becoming increasing viable as replacements at...

DC/DC converters adjust output for broadcast equipment

They can deliver up to 14A output current and operate over a 9V to 40V input.  Power density is 427W/in3 and the supply is packaged in an industry standard 1/16th brick form factor.

They can be used for creating additional high current output voltages from a single output 12 or 24V AC/DC supply power supply in medical, communications, industrial, test and measurement, broadcast and portable equipment.

The compact, PCB-mount converters measure 33 x 22.9 x 12.7mm and offer efficiencies of up to 98%. Ambient operating temperature is -40 to 125°C. The thermal design allows for minimal output de-rating, even with low airflow and high ambient temperature conditions, says the company. The dynamic voltage response reduces the need for external capacitors.

Standard features include a trim pin for output voltage adjustment, remote sense, remote on-off (positive or negative logic), input under-voltage, over-current and over-temperature protection. Power good, operating frequency synchronisation and output sequencing are available as an option.

Safety certification includes IEC/EN 60950-1 and UL/CSA 60950-1.
