Stadium Power has announced the availability of the VB-6W series of high performance 6 Watt, single and dual output DC-DC converters.

All models are enclosed in a miniature 8-pin SIL non-conductive black flame resistant resin package and provide the same performance as conventional DIL 24 pin products with a 66% saving in volume and 68% footprint saving.

The Stadium Power VB-6W series are high performance DC-DC converters offering a 2:1 input range with nominal input voltages of 5, 12, 24 and 48Vdc. Output voltage option are 3.3, 5, 9, 15, 24, ±5, ±12 and ±15Vdc requiring no minimum load to achieve voltage accuracy of 1% with efficiency up to 86%.

Other standard features include 1500Vdc isolation, continuous short circuit protection, switching frequency of 100 KHz minimum and full load operating temperature range of -40 to +65°C.

Optional features include remote on/off control and 3000Vdc high isolation.
