9-36 Vin range 1/16th brick delivers class-leading isolation

  • Power Devices


Murata announces the introduction of its UWS-Q12 series, the latest in a line of 50W, 9-36vin range DC-DC converters by Murata Power Solutions. This series was developed for a wide range of applications including, network equipment, industrial, railway, power grid, and transportation. In an industry standard 1/16th brick pinout, the solution provides a basic I/O insulation system rated at 2,250Vdc isolation with a fully regulated DC output. The series also offers single output modules with outputs of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, and 24Vdc all rated at 50W. Further, with a universal Vin range, requirements for Intermediate Bus Converter (IBC) architecture are readily met.

The UWS-Q12 series provides numerous standard features including positive or negative ON/Off control, output over current protection, over temperature protection, Input under Voltage lock-out, short circuit protection, Pre-Bias protection, Vout trim, and Vout sense function. The line has a galvanic isolation barrier between the input and output of the module with a basic insulation system rated at 2,250Vdc. Each converter is designed to deliver 50W of power with efficiencies reaching 91 percent on the 5V, 12V, 15V and 24Vout versions and 89.5 percent on the 3.3Vout model. Given this level of design flexibility, greater operating and cost efficiencies are realized.

“Like other Murata power products, the UWS-Q12 series incorporates a unique combination of design, packaging, component selection, and assembly techniques to achieve highly advanced and reliable products. Combine this with the Universal Input Voltage Range, high efficiency and small footprint the UWS-Q12 series delivers maximum flexibility for a wide variety of applications.” said Bill Smith, Director – Product Line Management, Murata Power Solutions.
