Murata has announced the BPM15 Series isolated DC/DC power modules, designed to deliver 15 W of isolated output power from ±5-V, ±12-V, and ±15-V outputs. This series provides a balance between electrical performance, rugged mechanical design, and cost, while providing flexibility for power system engineers.
The BPM15 Series address a growing demand for isolated DC/DC modules that accept 4:1 input ranges of 9 to 36 V and 18 to 75 V. These models have an isolation barrier that will withstand 1,600 VDC with a basic insulation system. The series also incorporates the latest PWM (pulse width modulation) technology with SMT and automated assembly components.
The BPM15 is specified to operate over the temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, providing a modular power solution for extended environment and high-reliability industrial applications with little or no airflow.
The units are ruggedized and encapsulated in 1″ x 1″ x 0.40″ high, five-sided, shielded metal package designed to optimize thermal and mechanical performance and reliability. They will find applications in harsh environments including industrial, smart grid, data storage, networking, computing/server, and telecommunications.
“The BPM15 series of DC/DC converters, covering a VIN range from 9 V to 75 V, encapsulated in a rugged 1″ x 1″ five-sided shielded package, are ideal solutions for a wide variety of applications. Power systems engineers will benefit from the small size, high efficiency, and rugged packaging of the BPM15 series,” says Bill Smith, director, product line management, Murata Power Solutions.
The BPM15 is certified to UL-60950-1, CSA-C22.2 No. 60950-1, IEC/60950-1, 2nd edition. Sample quantities now are available.
