DC to DC Converters are Electronic Switch-Mode devices that convert one DC voltage level to another, by storing the input energy temporarily and then releasing that energy to the output at a different voltage. This conversion method is significantly more power efficient (75 % to 98 %) than linear voltage regulation (which dissipates unwanted power as heat). This efficiency is beneficial especially to increase the running time of battery-operated devices.
Drawbacks of switching DC-DC Converters include complexity, electronic noise (EMI / RFI) and to some extent cost, although this has come down with advances in chip design. DC/DC Converters are now available as integrated circuits needing minimal additional components. They are also available as a complete hybrid circuit component, ready for use within an electronic assembly.
DC-DC Converters are available with either no isolation between the input and output, or with complete input/output isolation which is ideal where two portions of a circuit need to be electrically isolated from each other, such as with noisy digital processors.
Accutronics offers a complete range of DC-to-DC Converters that are either Chassis-mount or PCB-mount and with output power ranging from as low as 0.25 W to as high as 800 W in a single module. Devices are available for all requirements, ranging from low-cost Commercial grade to Industrial and full Mil-Spec Military grades.
