DC-DC Converters feature 0.69 cm² footprint.
Press Release Summary:
March 24, 2014 - Measuring 8.2 x 8.4 x 8.5 mm, 2 Watt MTU2 Series features typ conversion efficiency of 85% across full load range and power density of 3.403 W/cm³. Ultra miniature, surface mounted units are available with either single or dual output voltage. Input voltages cover nominal inputs from 3.3–24 Vdc, and output voltage options include 5, 12, or 24 Vdc as well as ±5 or ±12 Vdc. Operating from -40 to +85°C, converters have 1 kVdc input/output galvanic isolation that helps minimize switching noise.

Murata 2 Watt DC-DC Converter Shrinks Footprint by 50% of Industry Norm
Press release date: March 19, 2014
Murata today announced the MTU2 series of ultra miniature surface mounted 2 W DC-DC converters from Murata Power Solutions. Believed to be the industry’s smallest 2W converter and measuring just 8.2 x 8.4 x 8.5 mm with a 0.69 cm2 footprint, it is 50% smaller than the current 1.67 cm2 industry standard. With a typical conversion efficiency of 85% across the full load range and a power density of 3.403 Watts/cm3, the MTU2 series is available with either a single or dual output voltage. Input voltages cover the popular nominal inputs from 3.3 to 24 VDC. Output voltage options include 5, 12, or 24 VDC. Dual output models provide +/- 5 or +/- 12 VDC. Load regulation is typically 5% better than other products available on the market, reducing the need for any additional regulation components.
The MTU2 has a 1kVDC input/output galvanic isolation that helps to reduce switching noise and allows the converter to be configured to provide an isolated negative rail in systems where only positive rails exist.
Murata’s product marketing manager, Ann-Marie Bayliss, comments, “The MTU2 sets a new footprint standard for 2 W DC/DC converters. It has a footprint 50% smaller than the current industry standard and remains pin compatible with our 1W MTU1 surface mount converter series.”
The MTU2 can operate over the full industrial temperature range from -40 to +85 degrees C.
