ELECTRONICS: Murata Power Solutions has added a 3A output current surface mount series to its family of OkamiTM non-isolated, DOSA compliant pinout, point-of-load (PoL) DC/DC converters. The OKI-T/3-W40 series is ideal for use 24V dc input range applications that require a low voltage dc source for powering FPGAs and microprocessors.The 15W maximum output power OKI-T/3-W40 series has a wide input range of 16V dc to 40V dc and a programmable output voltage of 0.75V dc to 5.5V dc. The new modules achieve high power conversion efficiency with excellent derating performance. The OKI-T/3-W40 series is able to drive up to 1,000 µF ceramic capacitors making it easy for users to keep ripple and noise under control.
In addition to a wide voltage input range, the OKI-T/3-W40 series features on/off control, over-temperature, over-current, and under-voltage lock out (UVLO) protection.
Overall dimensions of the new modules are 0.82 inch (20.8 mm) x 0.47 inch (11.9 mm) x 0.34 inch (8.5 mm) high. Operating temperature range is -40C to 85C.
The new Okami OKI-T/3-W40 series of PoL dc/dc converters meets all standard UL/EN/IEC 60950-1 safety certifications and is compliant with RoHS-6 hazardous substance regulations.
