Surface-Mount DC-DC Offers Extended Temperature Operation

Aimtec announces a new surface-mount dc-dc converter designed to provide input-to-output isolation of 3500-Vdc for up to 60 seconds, low isolation capacitance (20pF) and extended temperature operation from -50 to +125 degrees C. These converters are designed to provide enhanced isolation in systems and support 5Vdc on both the input and output. This new AM1LE-NZ series converter also features continuous short circuit protection, and is pin compatible with many manufacturers.

With an operating frequency of 100kHz (300kHz, maximum), these converters measure 0.50 x 0.44 x 0.28 inches (12.70 x 11.20 x 7.25 mm) and weigh 1.5 grams. They deliver full power (1W) up to 105 degrees C and derate linearly to 80% power (0.8W) at 125 degrees C. They have a noise and ripple of 60 mV (20MHz bandwidth) and a calculated MTBF of 3.5 million hours. The AM1LE-NZ meets EN55022 Class B and IEC61000-4-2, Perf. Criteria B.

These dc-dc converters match the stringent requirements needed for automotive and transportation equipment and are well suited to any outdoor installation. Samples are available from stock and can be ordered immediately from any of Aimtec's global network of franchised distributors.
