New Product Release from JAE
MX80 Compact Waterproof Automotive Connectors
In response to the growing demand for miniaturized in-vehicle connectors, JAE has released its MX80 series of compact automotive in-line connectors. Featuring a 2.54mm pitch, this series is ideal for use in areas where space is limited. In addition to their small size, these connectors deliver the highest quality performance in terms of power handling, contact reliability and vibration resistance. And they come with Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) functionality.
A brief overview of the series’ specifications is shown below:
*2 and 4 position options, and 0.13 to 0.22mm2 cable options are available as prototypes, with mass production starting soon.

The series offers an input range of 9V to 53Vdc and adjustable outputs from 9.6V to 48V. Special care was taken in the design of the i7C to ensure a seamless transition from buck to boost operation.
With efficiencies of up to 97%, power losses are minimized allowing the product to operate and deliver high output power in demanding thermal environments. Under light load conditions, the i7C’s control techniques significantly reduce power dissipation. A 5mA input current draw is typical under zero load conditions. And the input current can be further reduced to 0.25mA (typ) when the remote on-off is utilized. This extends the amount of time battery powered equipment can remain functional during periods of non-peak operation.
For more information on the i7C series – or any of TDK Lambda’s power converters – please contact Cover 2 Sales.
Operating power supplies in parallel is commonly used to increase the available output power or to provide system redundancy in the event of a power supply failure. Not all power supplies can be connected parallel, however. So before connecting power supplies in this manner make sure to consult the manufacturer’s documentation.
You should also review TDK Lambda’s Power Blog for their latest article, “Avoiding noise issues when operating power supplies in parallel“.
TDK Lambda’s power blog contains numerous articles like this, focusing on different aspects of power system design. Please make sure to visit often for the latest technical information! Or, follow them on Linked In so you don’t miss any posts.
And, as always, you can contact Cover 2 Sales for assistance in selecting a power supply for your design!
