Eighth-Brick Converters First To Offer 4:1 Inputs

According to the company, the UWE series from Murata Electronics North America UWE comprises the first eighth-brick dc-dc converter modules to support 4:1 ultra-wide inputs, 9 to 36 V dc or 18 to 75 V dc. These devices deliver fixed outputs up to 75 W, making them viable as drop-in replacements for 100-W quarter-bricks where the full 100 W is not needed. Typical applications include mobile and battery-powered devices, test equipment, telecom and wireless, and distributed power architectures. Fixed output voltages range between 3.3 and 24 V dc, and operating temperature ranges from –40°C to 85°C with derating. An optional thermal mounting baseplate is available. Other features include remote on/off control, trim, remote sense functions, and pre-bias operation, plus input undervoltage, output short-circuit, overcurrent, and overtemperature protection. OEM pricing starts at $35 each.
