Murata shrinks 1 W DC-DC converter footprint by 34%

MTC1 DC-DC converter


Murata has announced the MTC1 Series of 1 Watt regulated single output DC-DC converters manufactured by Murata Power Solutions. The MTC1 Series comprises a total of six single output models providing 3.3, 5, or 12 VDC. These miniature isolated devices are available with nominal input voltages of 12 or 24 VDC and accommodate a 2:1 input range around the selected nominal.

No additional regulation components are required since the MTC1 output is fully regulated to within ±0.5% of stated output. A voltage trim pin allows adjustment of the output voltage by ±10% to suit any special voltage requirements. A remote on/off pin provides the ability to disable the output for application power saving.

Input to output isolation conforms to the international safety insulation standard UL60950 (pending). With its certification (pending) to the medical safety standard ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1 for 2 MOOPs, the converter is suitable for use in a wide range of medical and healthcare applications. Occupying 34% less PCB area than competing parts, the MTC1 can operate up to 100°C with derating.

Ann-Marie Bayliss, product marketing manager of Murata Power Solutions comments, “The MTC1 with its 34% smaller footprint, UL60950 reinforced insulation, and 3rd edition medical safety standard compliance offers enhanced product features in a miniature package.”
