MANSFIELD, Mass., 9 April 2014. Murata Power Solutions in Mansfield, Mass., is introducing the MTU2 series of miniature surface-mount 2-Watt DC-DC converters that can operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.

One of the industry's smallest 2-Watt power electronics devices and measuring 8.2 by 8.4 by 8.5 millimeters with a 0.69 square centimeters footprint, it is 50 percent smaller than the current 1.67 square centimeters industry standard, Murata officials say.

With a typical conversion efficiency of 85 percent across the load range and a power density of 3.403 Watts per cubic centimeter, the MTU2 series is available with either one or dual output voltage.

Input voltages cover nominal inputs from 3.3 to 24 volts DC. Output voltage options include 5, 12, or 24 volts DC. Dual output models provide plus-or-minus 5 or plus-or-minus 12 volts DC.

Load regulation is typically 5 percent better than other products available on the market, reducing the need for any additional regulation components.

The MTU2 has a 1 kilovolt DC input/output galvanic isolation that helps to reduce switching noise and allows the converter to be configured to provide an isolated negative rail in systems where only positive rails exist.
