TDK Corp. disclosed that it has started mass production of its CC-E series of compact, insulated dc-dc converters targeted at communications devices and industrial equipment.

According to the company, they developed the CC-E series with the main objective of making converters smaller. The new dc-dc converters require up to 50 percent less mounting space than earlier TDK products and are touted to be the smallest dc-dc converters in the industry.

In making the converters smaller, TDK employed its latest technologies and its transformer core ferrite materials to optimize the transformers. By using TDK original high-capacitance, multilayer ceramic capacitors, the use of aluminum electrolyte capacitors and tantalum capacitors can be avoided for enhanced reliability, safety and environmental performance, including RoHS compliance, said the press release. The new converters also offer excellent performance and functions, including a wide operating temperature range, an internal on-off remote control circuit and a built-in output voltage variable function.

The full lineup includes a total of 136 models, including surface mount types for ease of use under a wide range of environments in various applications. Promising high performance, these new products can operate at temperatures from -40C to 85C. The output voltage can be set with high precision to within 3 percent.

TDK added that prices are 30 percent lower than its earlier products.
