RECOM Develops Next Generation Of 1 & 1.5A Switching Regulators
RECOM has launched it’s next generation of 1 and 1.5A switching regulators. Two years after introducing the 0.5A R78xx switching regulator family, the R-78Bxx-1.0 and R-78Bxx-1.5 series have efficiencies of up to 95% and are pin-compatible with it’s 0.5A R-78xx-0.5-series and with the common 78xx linear regulators.
Due to high efficiencies the R-78Bxx-1.0 and R-78Bxx-1.5 series do not require a heat sink, making it suitable for applications where board space is at a premium and a heat sink cannot be used.
The R-78Bxx-1.0 and R-78Bxx-1.5 series offer input ranges from 4.75 to 34Vdc and output voltages from 1.5 to 15Vdc. The switching regulators are non-isolated and feature built-in short circuit protection and thermal shutdown. Measuring 0.69 x 0.45 x 0.35" the series has an operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C.
The R-78Bxx-1.0 and R-78Bxx-1.5 series regulators are available now and start at $4.67 in 1000 piece quantities.
