1-W DC-DC converter improves efficiency

February 24, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Murata’s NCS1 series of regulated single output 1-Watt DC-DC converters comprises two input voltage versions accommodating the wide 4:1 input range of 4.5 – 18 VDC around a 12 VDC nominal, or 9 – 36 VDC around a 24 VDC nominal. Output voltage options, regulated to within ±0.5% of stated output, are 3.3, 5, or 12 VDC.

Packaged in an industry standard single-in-line format measuring 21.87 x 11.3 x 8.2 mm, the NCS1 series is up to 8% more efficient compared to similar products currently available on the market. This helps lower overall system power consumption and also contributes to improving system reliability. The converter operates over -40°C to 105°C, with derating, and has continuous short circuit protection. Certification to the IT safety standard UL/IEC/EN 60950 is pending.
