Minmax introduced to the European market its MD family of isolated DC-DC converter modules for use in space-constrained designs. The 6W MDWI06, 8W MDWI08 and 10W MDWI10 are available with 4:1 input voltage ranges of 9-36V or 18-75V. The 8W MDW08 and 10W MDW10 give a choice of three 2:1 input voltage ranges of 9-18V, 18-36V or 36-75V. All these series of converters are supplied in versions offering a fixed output voltage of 3.3V, 5V, 5.1V, 12V, 15V, 24V, ±12V or ±15V.
High efficiency, very low no-load power consumption
The MD converters’ robust, encapsulated DIP16 package has an industry-standard footprint of 0.94” x 0.54” and is just 0.31” high. It weighs 6.1g. The high efficiency of the modules’ power regulation technology and the great thermal characteristics of the MINMAX package design mean that the converters can achieve very high power density while supporting operation at temperatures up to 90°C. System design engineers can use an MD family DC-DC converter to cut both board footprint and weight typically by 50% when replacing a competing module that has an equivalent power rating.
