CODICO - YOUR DESIGN-IN COMPONENT COMPANY

CODICO AND MURATA PS AGREE TO A FORMIDABLE DISTRIBUTION PARTNERSHIP!

2008-06-01

With this new distribution agreement, CODICO complements its lineup of DC/DC power conversion modules in the power range to 30W, as well as its portfolio of brick converters for applications in industrial environments where telecom specifications will not suffice. 

MURATA Power Solutions grew out of a friendly takeover of C&D Technologies’ Power Electronics Division and now unites the Datel and Newport brands. The new owner, Japan’s MURATA MANUFACTURING CO., Ltd., best known as a leading manufacturer of high-quality passive components, is especially focused on the long-term establishment of its power conversion business through market-shaping new products. Towards this goal, MURATA will take advantage of potential synergies with its existing MURATA Power Division, which until now has concentrated on power supplies for the Japanese market only. The increased R&D budget furthermore ensures that the company’s know-how centers will be up to the task of delivering new and innovative power solutions. Low-power DC/DC converters (up to 30W) will come from Milton Keyens (GB), formerly a Newport facility that built its reputation with high-quality modules in the 1W to 4W segment; while the segment from 30W will be handled by former Datel facilities in a two-pronged approach: top-performing product families from the USA and cost-optimized versions from China.

Examples of the top performance available in standard brick formats include: 1) an ultra-wide 4:1 input range (9VDC to 36VDC and 18VDC to 72VDC); 2) optional versions with an aluminum baseplate for contact cooling via all types of customer heat sinks; 3) a high temperature rating with pure convection cooling. The newest versions of unregulated ultra low-power converters (up to 4W) feature significantly improved efficiencies and a reduction in output voltage load dependence of up to -50%! And, with respect to the next generation of SMT-mounted ultra low-power DC modules, reliability is assured by avoiding circuit boards and instead using the stress-free leadframe technique for assembly.

Given the very broad spectrum of solutions, CODICO would be pleased to provide you with a convenient product overview or with the selection guide containing all the available options.

We can provide the information as a PDF file or in a printed version. Or, if you prefer, send us your specifications and we will recommend the ideal product for your application.
