200-Watt DC-DC converter with on-side thermal management introduced by GAÏA Converter for high-reliability applications

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.

The majority of DC-DC converters dissipate heat from a top mounted heatsink, company officials say. The GAÏA 200W series addresses power requirements in from 200 Watts to 1 kilowatt in high-reliability applications. The device is as efficient as 91 percent.

The 200W series DC-DC converter has input ranges of 9 to 60 volts DC, 12 to 100 volts DC, and 33 to 180 volts DC allowing multi-battery use. 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.

The GAÏA Converter 200W series measures 2.9 by 1.9 inches, and is 0.5 inches high. All GAÏA converters are designed and manufactured in-house in France. For more information contact GAÏA Converter online at www.gaia-converter.com.
