Next Generation Dc Switching Regulators Maximize Economy and Performance


CUI’s Power Group today announced the addition of four new series to its family of non-isolated dc switching regulators. The next generation VX78 500, VXO78 500, VX78 1000, and VXO78 1000 series are extremely efficient, typically up to 96%,and balance maximizing economy while delivering a high level of performance as a direct alternative to using linear regulators. Utilizing switching technology, the models are footprint compatible with TO-220 package LM78XX and LM79XX model regulators and unlike linear regulators, do not require a heat sink. This makes them ideal for use in portable devices, battery-fed equipment, and embedded designs where board space is at a premium and energy efficiency is a concern.

The encapsulated VX78 series and open frame VXO78 series, suited for positive or negative output applications, both offer 500 mA and 1 A output current options and have no-load input currents as low as 0.2 mA.Packaged in an ultra-compact, 3 pin SIP footprint, the encapsulated models measure just 0.45 x 0.29 x 0.40 in (11.60 x 7.55 x 10.16 mm), while the open frame models have even smaller dimensions of 0.39 x 0.28 x 0.43 in (10.00 x 7.20 x 11.00 mm).

The 500 mA series accept a wide range of input voltagesup to 4.75 to 36 Vdc, whilethe 1 A series accommodate input voltage rangesup to6 to 36 Vdc. Nominal output voltages of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, or 15 Vdc, are also availabledepending upon the series. Operating temperatures for all models range from 40 up to +71°C at full load, derating to 60% load at +85°C.

These non-isolated dc dc converters also feature low ripple and noise, continuous short circuit protection,and UL 60950 1 and CSA safety certifications, along with the CE mark. All models carry a minimum MTBF of 2,000,000 hours at +25°C ambient, calculated per MIL HDBK 217F.

The VX78-500, VXO78-500, VX78-1000, and VXO78-1000 series are available immediately with prices starting at $2.09 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing.
