For Immediate Release

5V, 8A (40W) 4:1 Input

1×1 DC-DC Converter

CP40B 4:1 SeriesAtkinson, NH – June 2, 2016 – Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. introduces the new “Cool Power Technologies” ultra-wide input range 5V, 8A (40W) 1×1 DC-DC converter. This open frame or optional encapsulated module provides 40W of output power @ an output voltage of 5VDC. The CP40 series is the only 40W 1×1 4:1 input module available on the market today (a 12V version is also available.) This module is ideal for industrial or distributed power architecture applications. The module is compliant with the standard 1×2 pinout and interface standards. It has an ultra wide input voltage range of 18 to 75 VDC (9 – 36 Vin versions available) & provides 2250 VDC input to output isolation in open frame configuration, 1600VDC in the encapsulated module.

The CP40 4:1 input series is ROHS II Directive 2011/65/EU Compliant, meets UL/EN 60950 requirements and is UL94 V-0 flammability rated. The module complies with all of the typical industry requirements including no load operation, 2X nominal input voltage transient and pre-biased load startup.

Other features include: fixed-frequency operation, auto-restart over-voltage, over-current & over-temperature protections, undervoltage lockout and +/-10% output voltage trim. Remote ON/OFF is standard with positive or negative logic options available. Modules can also be ordered without enable pin, trim pin or with neither.

The modules feature a standard 1×2 pinout with dimensions of 0.94” L x 0.94” W x 0.35″ Max. Height (23.9mm x 23.9mm x 8.9mm.) The encapsulated versions are standard 1″ x 1″ x 0.4″ Tall (25.4mm x 25.4mm x 10.2mm.)

A technical datasheet is available here & sample quantities can be ordered directly from stock via the website.
