Murata has introduced a line-up of isolated 3W DC-DC converters manufactured by Murata Power Solutions. The NCS3 series through-hole mounting converters are packaged in an industry standard, pin compatible, SIP format, geared as a replacement part when updating older product designs, stated the company.

NCS3 series

Accommodating a wide 4:1 input voltage range around either a 12VDC or 48VDC nominal, the NCS3 series comprises eight single-output regulated models providing a choice of 3.3, 5, 12, or 15VDC output. The wide input voltage suits applications where the nominal input voltage might be different, or where wide voltage deviations are anticipated, noted Murata. Output regulation is quoted as better than one per cent of stated output, meaning that no additional voltage regulation components are required, saving both cost and valuable board space. Input / output isolation of 1.5kVDC is standard across the range.

The NCS3 can deliver 3W across a wide range of operating temperatures from -40°C to 95°C with model-dependent derating.

Safety features include continuous output short circuit protection and certification to the internationally recognized UL60950 safety standard.

Compared to similar products available, the NCS3 series offers up to a three per cent power conversion efficiency improvement that aids in lowering overall system power consumption in addition to enhancing product and system reliability, the company added.
