Aimtec DC/DC Switching Regulator

MONTREAL, Canada - Aimtec expands its line of DC/DC switching regulators with the launch of two new series: AMSR1.5-78-NZ and AMSR2-78-NZ (AMSRx-78-NZ).

Feature rich and pin-to-pin replacements of 78xx linear regulators, the AMSRx-78-NZ switching regulators provide highly regulated (±1%) output voltages ranging as low as 2.5VDC up to 6VDC. Maximum output currents of 1.5A or 2A are produced at efficiency rates of up to 93% that remain virtually constant over the entire input range. Low output ripple and noise (45mV p-p) make these robust converters ideal for noise sensitive applications.

Wide input ranges extend from 4.75-18VDC to 8-18VDC for deferent models allowing these highly reliable products to be powered from unregulated sources.

Designed in a light weight (4g), SIP3 package (11.50 x 8.90 x 17.50mm), the AMSRx-78-NZ series are pin compatible to the TO-220 package and ideal for space critical configurations such as portable power and standby-power applications.

Other important and useful features include continuous short circuit protection, output current limiting and thermal shutdown. Aimtec's DC-DC switching regulator converters operate continuously at full load without derating below +71° C, within an ambient temperature range of -40° to +85°C.

Made with high quality, RoHS compliant materials that undergo rigorous quality control to ensure reliability and performance, AMSRx-78-NZ series are cost effectively priced at $6.82/1000+ pieces with samples available from stock and can be ordered through any of Aimtec's Franchised Distributors.
