Aimtec Intros DC/DC Switching Regulators
DC/DC switching regulator.
Montreal, Canada — Aimtec has added two new series of DC/DC switching regulators to bring its complete product offering to over 40 non-isolated, switching regulators as pin-to-pin replacements for 78xx linear regulators to meet virtually every configuration requirement.

The new AMSRW-78Z differentiates itself with an ultra-wide (up to 8:1) input voltage range spanning from 9 to 72VDC stepping down to highly regulated and protected output voltages ranging from 3.3 to 15VDC.

Another model, the new AMSRB-78NZ is a cost-effective solution with wide (up to 6:1) input voltage range spanning from 4.5 to 30VDC step down to regulated and protected outputs ranging from 3.3 to 15VDC. The AMSRB-78NZ has low output ripple and noise of 35mV p-p, an important feature for noise-sensitive applications.

Both units produce maximum output currents of 500mA at efficiencies of up to 96 percent that remain virtually constant over the entire input range. Operating continuously at full load without derating below +71°C (AMSRB-78-NZ) or +60°C (AMSRW-78Z), within an ambient temperature range of -40 to +85°C eliminates the need for the costly and cumbersome heatsinks usually associated with linear regulators.

Designed in a compact, SIP3 packages (11.68 x 9.65 x 7.50mm), both units are pin-compatible with the TO-220 package for low profile circuit implementations such as portable power and standby-power applications.
