120W 1/8th Brick DC-DC Converter for Industrial Applications

April 21, 2020 by Paul Shepard

Murata has expanded its UWE family of dc-dc converters to include the UWE-Q12 series with output voltages of 5-, 12- and 24-Vdc. This new line offers greater design flexibility because of the 9- to 36-Vin range, 120-Watt rating, high efficiency, and cost effectiveness that it delivers.

Further, the eighth brick 120-Watt version provides industry leading power, density, and efficiency since it encompasses the latest technology for fixed frequency switching in power supply architectures.
