Murata has released the NCS1 series of regulated single output 1W DC-DC converters manufactured by Murata Power Solutions. According to the firm, the series is composed of two input voltage versions accommodating the wide 4:1 input range of 4.5-18VDC around a 12VDC nominal, or 9-36VDC around a 24VDC nominal. Output voltage options, regulated to within ±0.5 percent of stated output, are 3.3, 5 or 12VDC.

NCS1 series

Packaged in an industry standard single-in-line format measuring 21.87 x 11.3 x 8.2mm, the NCS1 series efficiency is up to eight percent more efficient compared to similar products available on the market. This helps lower overall system power consumption and also contributes to improving system reliability. The converter is suitable for use in a wide range of operating temperature environments from -40°C to 105°C with derating.

The NCS1 series features continuous short circuit protection. Certification to the internationally recognized IT safety standard UL/IEC/EN 60950 is pending.
