January 30, 2019 - The ME300RU series, available from MicroPower Direct, is a series of DC/DC converters. Twenty-one standard models provide tightly regulated outputs at 3W of isolated power while packaged in a miniature SIP package that takes up a minimum of board space.
Twenty-one standard models operate from wide 4:1 inputs of 4.5 - 18 VDC, 9 - 36 VDC, and 18 - 75 VDC, providing single and dual outputs of 3.3, 5, 12, 15, ±5, ±12 or ±15 VDC. Standard features include an input/output isolation of 1,600 VDC, ±1% load regulation, continuous short circuit protection and a remote on/off control input. The MTBF of the ME300RU series (per MIL HDBK 217F) is over 900 khours.
All models of the ME300RU family are packaged in a miniature SIP case that measures just 0.67 x 0.38 x 0.48 in (17.0 x 9.45 x 12.2 mm). All case materials meet UL94-V0 requirements. Each model is specified for operation over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +76°C with no heat sinking required. Cooling is by free-air convection.
With its features, miniature SIP packaging, wide model selection and high power, the ME300RU series is a choice for a wide variety of board level industrial power applications where performance requirements are high and board space is limited.
