New 1.5W mini DC/DC converter has high efficiency and load regulation

BPS Series isolated converters offer high reliability in small package for RF transceivers, programmable filters, and industrial and scientific instruments

Mini DC/DC converterMarch 12, 2007 - Phelps, NY – BEAR Power Supplies, Inc. (www.bearpwr.com) today announced its new BPS Series high-voltage DC/DC converters, featuring up to five times better efficiency and ten times better load regulation than similar products on the market. These high-reliability isolated 1.5W converters are ideal for powering PIN diodes and APDs in applications such as RF transceivers, programmable filters, and industrial and scientific instruments.

The ultra-miniature encapsulated package is only 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.4 inches (12.7 x 12.7 x 10.2 mm), and weighs just 4 grams. Both through-hole and SMT versions are available.

BPS Series converters have a single input voltage (configurable from 3 VDC to 12 VDC) and a single output voltage (configurable from 50 VDC to 220 VDC). They operate from -55°C to +85°C with no heat sink or electrical derating required.

(July 2, 2007 update: higher voltage announced! Input configurable from 3 VDC to 15 VDC.  Output configurable from 50 VDC to 300 VDC.)
