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

Bear Power Supplies, Inc. 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.)

The new DC/DC converter is a significant expansion of BEAR’s standard product line, previously consisting of rugged, encapsulated AC/DC power supplies. The company also makes a wide range of custom power supplies.
