Murata Power Solutions has expanded its range of Okami™ non-isolated point-of-load (PoL) DC-DC converters with the introduction of the OKI-78SR series of switching regulator converters for industrial applications. A direct drop-in replacement for industry standard three-terminal 7803 and 7805 series LDOs, the series offers ultra-wide input voltage range (7 to 36 VDC) for nominal 24 V in with either 3.3 or 5 V output voltage, depending on the model. The OKI-78SR series offer efficiency levels up to 90.5%; a significant advantage over traditional LDO solutions.
Fabricated on a 0.41 by 0.65 inch (10.4 by 16.5 mm) Single Inline Package (SIP) module, the OKI-78SR series are non-isolated switching regulator (SR) DC/DC power converters for embedded applications. The fixed single output converters offer both tight regulation and high efficiency directly at the power usage site and are a direct plug-in replacement for TO-220 package 78xx series linear regulators. Typically, no extra outside components are required.
Two nominal output voltages are offered (3.3 and 5 VDC), each with 1.5 A maximum output. Based on fixed-frequency buck switching topology, the high efficiency means very low heat and little electrical noise, requiring no external components. The ultra-wide input range is 7 to 36 VDC. Protection features include input undervoltage and short circuit protection, overcurrent and over temperature shut down. The OKI-78SR is designed to meet all standards approvals. RoHS-6 (no lead) hazardous material compliance is specified as standard.
