RECOM's R1SE cuts cost of 1W DC/DC converters

RECOM has unveiled its R1SE Series that according to the company allows production of more cost effective versions of specially selected DC/DC converters in batches of 100,000 or more pieces. Featuring 1W, 1kVDC isolation and 5V input/output, the R1SE is the company's first release in the economical "E-class".

The converters are mainly used to provide isolation for the interfaces of bus systems. In these applications, operating temperatures of 85°C without de-rating are sufficient. This makes the use of high grade temperature components with specifications up to 100°C, as used in the standard products, unnecessary. This helped to drive down both the material costs and the costly and time consuming certifications which are no longer necessary.

The case, measuring only 12.75 x 10.7 x 6.7mm and consisting of two parts, has been designed so that potting is not necessary—further reducing the material cost. Weighing only 1g, this lightweight component can be positioned quickly and precisely with automatic placement equipment. Despite not being potted, the 100 per cent lead-free design enables it to withstand all thermal cycling in the vapor phase solder processes.

These modifications have resulted in a 30 per cent price advantage compared to the standard products with no compromises to quality. The R1SE is subjected to the same rigorous RECOM quality checks as the standard part series and carry a three year warranty.

The R1SE is available from authorised distributors.
