Aimtec's compact 2W & 3W DC-DC converters with ultra-wide input

March 2, 2009
Date Announced: 02 Mar 2009 Aimtec, expands its SIP8 and SIP9 product offering with the addition of the AM2GW-Z and AM3GW-Z series of single and dual output step down, DC-DC converters. Aimtec’s AMxGx-xZ product line provides a space efficient alternative to larger DIP24 (32 x 20 x 10.2mm) packages, without compromise to power, efficiency or features. Scalability from 1watt to 3watts, encompassing 374 models within a compact SIP8 (21.85 x 9.2 x 11.5 mm) or SIP9 (25.91 x 9.14 x 12.45 mm) package, the AMxGx-xZ family of DC-DC converters can meet virtually any input/output configuration requirements.As the newest additions to this product line, the AM2GW-Z and AM3GW-Z series offer ultra wide input ranges of 9-36V and 18-75V with I/O isolation of 1500VDC within an industrial operating temperature range -40ºC + 75ºC. With output currents of up to 500mA delivered to a regulated output voltage range of 3.3V, 5V, 12V and 15V, at high efficiency rates of up to 85%, the AM2GW-Z and AM3GW-Zseries feature many functional advantages, including continuous short circuit protection and remote on/off control. The remote ON/OFF function in Aimtec's AM2GW-Z and AM3GW-Zseries is designed to allow the output voltage to shut-off without shutting down the input voltage, which can be a critical issue for portable power applications where conservation of the device's power consumption is required and/or there is a need for the power supplies to switch ON and OFF in a specific sequence.Made with high quality, RoHS compliant materials that undergo rigorous quality control to ensure reliability and performance, samples are available from stock and can be ordered immediately.Competitively priced, starting at $11.55/1000+ pieces, samples are immediately available from stock.About Aimtec Inc.Aimtec is a global supplier of modular AC-DC and DC-DC switching power converters and LED drivers for a wide range of industrial, IT, telecom, datacom and medical applications.
