Surface-Mount, Non-Isolated DC-DC Converters Offer 95% Efficiency at a Low Cost

April 07, 2020 by Paul Shepard

CUI Inc announced the addition of its first four contact, surface-mount, non-isolated converters to its dc-dc converter line. The ultra-thin VXO78-500-M features a 500mA output current, no-load input current as low as 0.2mA and a -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

These regulated dc-dc converters offer a wide 4.75- to 36-Vdc input voltage range, short-circuit protection and SMD reflow solderability in an ultra-compact SMT package with half-vias corners. Standard output voltages include 3.3-, 5-, 9-, 12-, and 15-Vdc.

The VXO78-500-M series is UL/EN/IEC 62368 certified, provides up to 95% efficiency, and is LM78XX & LM79XX pin compatible. Unlike linear regulators, this ultra-compact, surface mount dc-dc converter offers a remote on/off pin and extreme efficiency (up to 95%), making the VXO78-500-M suited for applications where board space is at a premium and maximizing energy efficiency is a concern.

General applications for the VXO78-500-M include ITE (commercial), controls and electronics that require a wide input at a low cost.

The VXO78-500-M is available immediately with prices starting at $2.52 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing or modified & custom designs.
