DC-DC Converters with RCC Topology Provide Cost-Effective Solutions for Digital Applications

February 10, 2013 by Jeff Shepard

Designed as a cost effective-solution for digital applications, Aimtec has released 13 new series of dc-dc converters 3 to 6 W power ranges. Distinguished by the letter V in their suffix, the new line of DIP24 packaged devices feature RCC (Ringing Choke Converter) topology with variable switching frequencies versus PWM (Pulse Wave Modulation) topology as with fixed switching frequency found in Aimtec's other DIP24 products.

Input voltage choices range from 4.5 to 72 Vdc with a ratio of either 2:1 or 4:1. Single or dual output voltage choices range from 3.3 to 24 Vdc with input / output isolation of either 1.5K or 3.5K Vdc. All models feature continuous short circuit protection and an effective operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C with derating with efficiency rates as high as 82%.

With a choice of over 525 models, this new line of constant voltage power supplies will meet the needs of multitude of digital applications including blade servers, high-end consumer electronics, major home appliances, industrial motor and process control, solar inverters, telecom / datacom systems, UPS units and smart lighting systems.

Packaged in an industry standard, low profile (0.4inches/10.16mm) DIP24 package (with standard pinout) for easy integration and scalability within a variety of circuit architectures, all models are designed to meet IEC 60950-1 standard for IT equipment.
