L78x-Compatible Power Modules for 24V Industrial Networks

March 04, 2020 by Paul Shepard

Würth Elektronik has added a new generation of MagI³C FDSM power modules with an input voltage of 36V, following on from versions with maximum input voltages of 28- and 42-V. The components in a SIP-3 package represent cost-effective solutions to meet the requirements for the transient capability of a 24V industrial voltage network. The new dc-dc converters operate from 6- to 36-VIN and generate a fixed output voltage of 3.3- or 5-V at a current of up to 1A.

The FDSM series of MagI³C power modules are fully integrated dc-dc converters with fixed output voltages. The modules comprise the power stage, controller, inductors, and effective operational input and output capacitors. They also come with thermal overload and short circuit protection.

No external components are required for operation. The workload of circuit design is thus reduced to a minimum. This allows new applications to be brought to market quickly with very low development costs. The standard THT housing for easy mounting is pin-compatible with the L78x linear controllers.

The radiated and line-bound interference of the modules is below the limit set by the EMC standard EN55032/CISPR32 Class B. They were measured with verified filter combinations on the 17800FDSM EVAL board, which, like the power modules, is available from stock.
