80W Ultra-Wide Input DC-DC Converters Simplify Input Transient Protection

December 10, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Gaia Converter extends its ultra-wide input voltage range dc-dc converters platform to the new high rel MGDD-80 series, targeting military and airborne applications. Designed for rugged applications, the MGDD-80 series do not use any optocoupler.

Uniquely wide, the MGDD-80 Series 9- 60-Vdc input with an 80V transient input voltage rating complies with Mil-Std-1275, 704 and DO-160 standards without additional front-end protection device. This unique performance is achieved thanks to Gaia’s proprietary switching techniques while also keeping efficiency over 90%.

With 2 outputs (for parallel, serial or symmetrical operation) of 5V, 12V, 15V and 24V, they can cover a wide variety of needs such as single 5 to 48V output, -15V or 2x24V outputs for example.

Packaged in a 2”x1.6” housing, the MGDD-80 Series have a wide temperature range of -55°C to +105°C and are potted to fit rugged military and airborne environmental conditions.

The units are full featured and protected with zero to full load regulation, Trim, Synchro & On/Off capability, adjustable UVLO, soft start, embedded EMI filter as well as over-current and over-temperature protection. They can also be synchronized and/or paralleled for added power or N+1 redundancy.
