TDK-Lambda releases 1/16th brick , 500W DC-DC converters with an output range of 3.3 to 24V
TDK Corporation (TSE 6762) announces the introduction of the 500W rated i7A non-isolated DC-DC converters. Capable of operating from an input voltage of 18V to 60V, the step-down converters deliver an output voltage that can be adjusted from 3.3 to 24V with an output current of up to 33A. The series is designed to be used in a wide range of applications including medical, communications, industrial, test, measurement and battery powered equipment.
The i7A series utilizes the industry standard 1/16th “brick” pinout, potentially offering cost reduction and efficiency improvements over isolated converters. They can be used in conjunction with a single output 24V, 36V or 48V AC-DC power supply to generate multiple additional regulated outputs, with or without battery back-up.
Operating efficiencies are up to 98%, minimizing power losses and allowing operation in harsh ambient temperatures of -40°C to +125°C even under low airflow conditions. With low output ripple and an excellent dynamic response, the i7A’s design reduces the number of required external components, saving both cost and board space.
The converters measure 34mm x 36.8mm and follow the industry standard 1/16th brick pin-out. Three mechanical configurations are available – a low 11.5mm high open frame model, a baseplate construction for conduction cooling or with an integral heat sink for convection or forced air cooled environments. The i7A has an output voltage adjustment pin, positive or negative logic remote on-off, positive remote sense, plus input under-voltage, over-current and thermal protection.
All models are certified to IEC/UL/CSA/EN 62368-1 and carry the CE mark for the Low Voltage and RoHS Directives.
More information on the i7A 33A series, including distributor inventory and evaluation boards, can be obtained from the TDK-Lambda Americas website.

Johanson Expands High-Q Multilayer Product Family with the New C-Series
Johanson is proud to announce the new C-Series High Frequency Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors. These ultra-low loss capacitors are made with Copper electrodes, instead of Palladium and Silver, making them less subject to the price volatility of precious metals. Therefore, prices for these low ESR capacitors will be more stable over time. Available in three cases sizes (0402, 0603, 0805), this series features an enhanced ESR of over 1.5GHz, and was developed with two key design criteria – reliability and lot-to-lot RF consistency. Applications include low power RF, smart metering, RF remote control, broadband wireless equipment, cellular base station equipment, RF matching and filter networks and RF microwave test equipment.
