Continuous Short Circuit Protection with 1-watt DC/DC Converters
Until now, most design engineers have had to accept low-cost, unregulated dc/dc converters that can fail quickly with a short circuit condition. Mornsun has announced the A_S-1WR and B_LS-1WR Series of single in-line package (SIP) dc/dc converters that feature continuous short circuit protection and are low cost.
The A_S-1WR and B_LS-1WR products offer 1W of power in a high density 0.77 inch x 0.37 inch x 0.24 inch package. These converters have the ability to resist a continuous short circuit; this can guarantee the survival of the converter with a continuous output short circuit without needing to resort to the costly method of using feedback loops to cope with overload shorts.
The A_S-1WR and B_LS-1WR Series accept 3.3 Vdc, 5 Vdc, 12 Vdc, 15 Vdc or 24 Vdc input voltages and provide either single or dual outputs of 3.3 Vdc, 5 Vdc, 9 Vdc, 12 Vdc, 15 Vdc or 24 Vdc.
