High-reliability DC/DC converters target medical applications

RS Components has announced availability of a new range of DC/DC converters that target use in medical applications. Offering high reliability and excellent value, the TIM 2 and TIM 3.5 series are manufactured by Traco Power and feature 2W and 3.5W DC/DC converters, respectively.

Importantly for medical applications, the converters provide reinforced isolation of up to 5000V AC (RMS). Also, offering a low leakage current of less than 2μA, the converters are suited to use in insulating electrical equipment within the BF classification for patient applied parts.

The converters are approved to IEC/EN/ES60601-1 3rd edition for 250V AC 2xMOPP up to an altitude of 5000m, and an ISO14971 risk management file is available. Further approvals include compliance with the latest EMC requirements IEC 60601-1-2 4th edition for medical equipment.

Available in compact DIP-16 or SMD-16 packages, a wide range of series models are available with output voltages of 3.3, 5.0, 9.0, 12, 15, 24, ±12 and ±15V DC. Devices in the series offer input voltage ranges of 4.5-12V, 9.0-18V, 18-36V and 36-75V DC.

Delivering high efficiencies, the converters also offer operation at environmental temperatures from –40 up to 95°C and up to 90°C for the TIM 3.5 series. Both series provide shock, vibration and thermal shock resistance, according to MIL-STD-810F.

The Traco Power TIM 2 and TIM 3.5 series of DC/DC converters are supplied with a 5-year product warranty and are shipping now in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
