Artesyn Announces New 3 Watt Industrial DC-DC Converters in Ultra-compact DIP-8 Package for Space-Critical Applications
Tempe, Ariz. [18 October, 2015] — Artesyn Embedded Technologies today announced
a new series of ultra-compact 3 watt DC-DC converters, targeting a diverse range of low
power applications, including data and telecommunication, instrumentation, computer
peripheral equipment, industrial automation and mobile battery-powered systems. The
new Artesyn AYA series of isolated DC-DC converters comprises 28 variants, each of
which is available in a mini dual-in-line package with through-hole mounting
The AYA series converters feature four 2:1 input range variants: seven of the models
have 4.5-10 V input; seven have 9–18 V inputs; seven have 18–36 V inputs; seven have
36-75 V inputs. Within each of these input categories, there is a choice of four single
output models, offering voltages of 3.3 V, 5 V, 12 V and 15V, and three dual output
models offering +5/-5 V, +12/-12 V or +15/-15 V.
Fully encapsulated in an ultra-compact 0.55 x 0.55 inch (14 x 14 mm) plastic case, the
converters have a height of just 0.32 inch (8 mm). They can accommodate an ambient
operating temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius with suitable derating. Offering
up to 87 percent conversion efficiency, the converters use 100 kHz fixed frequency
switching to minimize the need for external EMI filtering and comply with the EN 55022
class A and FCC level A standards for conducted noise.
Artesyn AYA series converters with output voltages of 5 V or higher are rated at 3 watts
power output; the four 3.3 V models are rated at 2 watts. Standard features include
1,500 Vdc input/output isolation, overload protection (fold back) and continuous (hiccup
mode) protection against output short-circuit.
