MINMAX MJWI15 Series of DC-DC Converter Modules Offer Excellent Minimization for Industrial and Other Space-Critical Applications

By WPG AmericasDecember 14, 2017

MINMAX — a specialist in the design and manufacturing of DC-DC converters — offers the MJWI15, a cost-optimized DC-DC converter series, as part of the company’s portfolio. The series offers 15W of output power in a 1"x1"x 0.4" shielded metal package with industry standard pinout.

The new DC-DC converter modules, providing ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage range and tight output voltage regulation, integrate state-of-the-art circuit topology that leverages a high efficiency of up to 91 percent.

Keeping pace with evolving design trends, the MINMAX MJWI15 series is revolutionizing board designs with minimization in DC-DC converter modules that utilize reduced board area in industrial, and other space-critical applications. Minimization of board space is facilitating the development of next-generation PCB designs that are ultra-light, ultra-thin, and more eco-friendly.

Applications of MINMAX MJWI15 Series of DC-DC Converter Modules

With the ever-increasing demand for cost-effective, high-performance power systems that consume less board space, system designs are incrementally becoming more and more complex and challenging than ever before.

Today's designers are tasked with selecting board-mounted power solutions that can readily adapt to diverse operating environments without getting affected by speedy design-to manufacture cycles while being performance-driven, cost effective, and energy efficient. 

The MINMAX MJWI15 DC-DC converter modules address these growing design challenges, enabling system designers to engineer solutions that dramatically reduce costs and ensure high-level manufacturing efficiencies that next-gen applications demand.

Typical applications of the MJWI15 DC-DC converter series include instrumentation, distributed power architectures in industrial and communication electronics, battery-operated equipment, and a variety of space critical applications that are focused on portability and energy-saving capabilities.

The MINMAX MJWI15 DC-DC converter modules, with smaller size, power-efficient conversion topologies, and minimization at its core, help shrink board space, making way for lighter and thinner PCB designs with accelerated time-to-market periods.
