XP Power Launches 6 Watt DC/DC Converter in Ultra Compact SIP-8 Package

Press release date: Apr 01, 2014

XP Power today announced the ITX series of 6 Watt DC/DC converters encapsulated in an industry standard SIP 8-pin package measuring just 0.86 x 0.44 x 0.36 inches (21.85 x 11.1 x 9.2 mm). Believed to be one of the highest power ratings available in a SIP format and delivering a power density of up to 46 Watts per cubic inch, the ITX series occupies much less board space than competing devices. The converter also is highly efficient, typically 86%, and meets the design requirements for modern energy efficient and space constrained applications. No forced air flow or additional heatsinking is required.

The single and dual regulated output ITX series comprises four 2:1 input voltage ranges of 4.5-9 VDC, 9-18 VDC, 18-36 VDC and 36-75 VDC. Single output models provide +3.3, +5, +12, +15 or +24 VDC and duals +/-5, +/- 12 or +/-15 VDC.

Standard input/output isolation is rated at 1.5 kVDC but a 3 kVDC isolation option is available to order by quoting model suffix –H. Another option (-R) provides a remote on/off input for external control of the converter such as for sequencing start up or automatic on/off switching.

The ITX series can be used in most environments and has an extended operating temperature range from -40 to +90 degrees C. Full output power can be delivered up to +65 degrees C without derating.

The ITX series is priced at $17.16 for 500 pcs orders of single output models and is available from Newark, Digi-Key, or direct from XP Power and come with a 3 year warranty.
