Artesyn Embedded Technologies' extended low-power output industrial DC-DC converters now covers 6W and 8W power outputs and comprise 14 variants per power output series, while the DIP-16 form factor minimises occupied board space and offers high power density.

The ATA series of isolated DC-DC converters targets a diverse range of applications, including instrumentation, data communication, telecommunication and computer peripheral equipment, and industrial automation, according to Artesyn.

All ATA series converters feature ultra-wide 4:1 inputs; seven of the models have 9–36V inputs and the other seven have 18–75V inputs. Within each of these two categories, there is a choice of five single output models, offering voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V or 24V and two dual output models offering 12/-12V or 15/-15V.

Encapsulated in a compact 24mm x 13.7mm shielded metal case, the converters have a height of just 8mm. The 8W models can accommodate operating temperatures from -40 to 80°C, while the 6W models can operate up to 90°C, both with suitable derating.

The converters, which offer up to 86% conversion efficiency, use 370kHz fixed frequency switching to minimise the need for external EMI filtering and comply with the EN 55022 class A and FCC level A standards for conducted noise. Standard features include 1,500Vdc input/output isolation, no load power consumption, no minimum load requirement, remote on/off, overload voltage and short-circuit protection, according to Artesyn.
