NCS1 Series : Murata 1 W DC-DC converter improves efficiency and reduces footprint

Date: Feb 21, 2014

NCS1 Series : Murata 1 W DC-DC converter improves efficiencyMurata today announced the NCS1 series of regulated single output 1 Watt DC-DC converters manufactured by Murata Power Solutions. The series comprises two input voltage versions accommodating the wide 4:1 input range of 4.5 – 18 VDC around a 12 VDC nominal, or 9 – 36 VDC around a 24 VDC nominal. Output voltage options, regulated to within +/- 0.5% of stated output, are 3.3, 5, or 12 VDC.

Packaged in an industry standard single-in-line format measuring 21.87 x 11.3 x 8.2 mm, the NCS1 series efficiency is up to 8% more efficient compared to similar products currently available on the market. This helps lower overall system power consumption and also contributes to improving system reliability. The converter is suitable for use in a wide range of operating temperature environments from – 40 degrees C to 105 degrees C with derating.

Ann-Marie Bayliss, Product Manager, Murata Power Solutions comments, “The NCS1 is up to 9% smaller than other similar SIP DC/DC converters. That coupled with an improved derating capability and a 4:1 input range makes the converter suitable for use in a broad range of industrial and telecommunications applications.”

The NCS1 series features continuous short circuit protection.

Certification to the internationally recognized IT safety standard UL/IEC/EN 60950 is pending.
