6 Watt DC-DC converters

Paul Boughton

XP Power’s ITQ series of 6 Watt DC-DC converters are packaged in a compact SIP 8-pin format, with a footprint measuring just 21.9 x 11.1 x 9.2mm. The ITQ series takes up less board space, giving designers more room to add features or the ability to reduce end product size.

The converter delivers a power density of up to 44 Watts per cubic inch and is highly efficient, typically 87%, making it well suited to modern green standard end products.

The high efficiency means the ITQ produces less wasted heat and does not require forced airflow or heatsinking for cooling.

The fully regulated single and dual output models accept a wide 4:1 input voltage range of 9-36 VDC or 18-75 VDC. Single output models provide standard +3.3, +5, +9, +12, +15, +24 VDC and duals ±5, ±12 or ±15 VDC.

Standard input/output isolation is rated at 1.5 kVDC with an optional 3k VDC isolation available in –H models. All models provide a remote on/off input that allows external control of the converter for sequencing or automatically powering it on or off.

The ITQ series can operate in most environments without requiring forced airflow and has a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +100 degrees C. Full output power can be delivered up to +70 degrees C without derating.

The ITQ range compliments the 2:1 input version of 6 Watt SIP DC-DC converters, the ITX series, released recently.

The ITQ series is available from Farnell, element14, Digi-Key, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and come with a 3 year warranty.
