LE HAILLAN, France, 13 Nov. 2010. GAÏA Converter Inc. in Le Haillan, France, is introducing the 200W series 200-Watt DC-DC converter power electronics family featuring heat path on side electronics thermal management. The rugged power supply dissipates heat on the side, which removes the need for a heatsink by enabling cooling alongside electronic circuit boards.

A choice of single standard output voltage is available typically 3.3, 5, 12, 15, or 24 volts DC. The device also enables users to adjust the output over non-standard outputs for applications such as battery charging and LED lighting systems.
