Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) has announced the DCP010507DB, a 1-W isolated, unregulated DC/DC converter, supporting an operating temperature range of -40 °C to 100 °C. The module provides thermal shutdown and short-circuit protection, and device-to-device synchronization control for applications with multiple converters.

The DCP010507DB operates from a 5 V input, features dual ±7V outputs, and is suitable for motor control, programmable logic control, and distributed I/O module applications. The converter can be configured as a single-output 14 V converter, and provides point-of-load power conversion and ground loop elimination for noise-sensitive applications. It uses semiconductor lead-frame construction with a power density of 2.4 W/cm3.
