XP Power (Sunnyvale, CA) announced additions to its range of low power metal
cased DC/DC converters with the launch of the 20 Watt JCM20 and JTK20 series.
Achieving a power density of up to 51 Watts per cubic inch and an efficiency
of up to 89%, these 1 x 1 x 0.39 inch (25.4 x 25.4 x 9.90 mm)units are
suitable for applications where PCB space for the converter needs to be kept
to a minimum. The JTK20 series accommodates an ultra wide 4:1 range, and is
available with either 9 – 36 or 18 – 75 VDC input voltage. With a 2:1 wide
input range, the JCM20 series offers three input ranges of 9 – 18, 18 – 36 or
36 – 75 VDC inputs. Single output models provide +3.3, +5, +12 or +15 VDC,
while the duals offer +/-5, +/-12 or +/-15 VDC.
