Murata Power Solutions (Mansfield, MA) now offers the Okami™ SIP 10A and 16A output current models of nonisolated single point-of-load (PoL) DC/DC converters. A range comprising four 10A models and four 16A models is available with either positive or negative on/off polarity and an optional sequence/track feature to control start-up time requirement. The modules can act as a drop-in replacement for other DOSA-compliant parts, or be used in space constrained designs that require high density power solutions and where a short time-to-market is required.

Housed in industry-standard DOSA SIP packages measuring 2.0 × 0.5 × 0.37 , Okami 10A and 16A DC/DC Converters have a wide 8.3VDC to 14VDC (nominally 12VDC) input voltage range and a programmable output voltage of 0.75VDC to 5.5VDC. Efficiency levels are up to 94.5% and all modules in the range are able to drive 1000μF capacitive loads. This makes them ideal for powering the latest generation of FPGAs and DSPs with tight output load regulation requirements. Operating temperature range is -40ºC to +85ºC.

The DC/DC converters offer exceptional thermal derating performance with over-temperature and overcurrent protection and under voltage lock-out are standard features. The modules are RoHS-compliant and are designed to meet UL/EN/IEC 60950-1 safety approvals and FCC emissions certifications.
