Recom – Regulated 6W DC-DC converters offer high power density


RECOM’s new RS6 series of 6W-rated DC-DC converter modules is intended for use in space-constrained applications which require high power density.

The modules feature power density of 2.7W/cm3, and will operate at full load across a wide temperature range from -40°C to 75°C. Output accuracy is rated at ±1%.

The new RS6 DC-DC converters have a 2:1 input-voltage range at nominal voltages of 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V DC. Housed in a 21.8mm x 9.2mm x 11.1mm package, they are pin-compatible with the RSO, RS and RS3 models, providing for easy upgrading without the need to change the PCB design.

The RS6 module is available in versions with a single 3.3V, 5V, 12V or 15V DC output. Dual-output versions rated at ±5V, ±12V and ±15V DC are also available. A Trim pin allows for accurate matching of the output voltage to the load requirement.

The RS6 series devices offer high efficiency at both full and low loads. At full load, conversion efficiency is up to 88%. Even at 30% load, efficiency can be as high as 80%.
