New 1-Watt isolated DC-DC converters

Paul Boughton

Aimtec announces the new AM1PS-NZ series of 1-Watt isolated power converters with continuous short circuit protection, 1500-VDC input-output isolation, UL 60950-1 recognition and compact DIP8 packaging. Its continuous short circuit protection saves the converter, the load and the converter’s input circuit from extremely high currents that could arise in a fault condition.

The AM1PS-NZ series offers input voltage options of 3.3, 5, 12, 15 and 24 VDC and single-output voltage options of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 and 24 VDC. It is rated to operate at ambient temperatures from -40 °C to +105°C (with derating above 85°C) and its 8-pin dual inline (DIP8) package measures 12.70 x 10.00 x 8.20 mm.

With 1500VDC of isolation and 60950-1 recognition, AM1PS-NZ fits in digital circuits, analog circuits and relay/gate drive circuits in a wide range of applications including industrial control, data communications, telecommunications and computing.
