GE's Compact DC-DC Converters Provide Board Designers With a Single Power Module to Provide Bipolar Dual Output Voltages

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 --

  • Bipolar Dual Output and Reduced Footprint Provides Board Designers with a Compact Power Option
  • Modules Equipped with Built-in Current, Voltage and Temperature Protection

GE's Critical Power business (NYSE: GE) has launched its new SHHN000A3CL isolated DC-DC converters, providing board designers with a bipolar dual-output module in a compact (1-inch-by-1-inch brick) footprint. The latest addition to GE's extensive Hammerhead series of power modules, the SHHN000A3CL unit features a wide input voltage range of 9-36 volts DC and a bipolar dual output, precisely regulated output voltage at 15 volts DC and -15 volts DC, 9 watts output power and a 0.3-amp output current.

The SHHN000A3CL can be used as a traditional DC/DC module, powering applications such as insulated-gate bipolar transistors and other semiconductor device drive circuits, or in hybrid power architectures and industrial markets.

The wide input range supported by GE's SHHN000A3CL converter provides designers with increased flexibility when designing based on required input power capabilities. It also allows for sourcing consistency, equipping users with a single product that can fit into multiple sockets. The available configurations of the module -- in through-hole and surface-mount formats -- further add to the flexibility of the new converters.

Standard features of the SHHN000A3CL converters include remote on/off, remote sense and output voltage adjustment. In addition, the module is fully self-protected with output over-current and over-voltage, over-temperature and input under-voltage shutdown control. Available optional features include negative or positive on/off logic and surface-mount connections.

The outputs of the SHHN000A3CL are fully isolated from the input, allowing versatile polarity configurations and grounding connections. The unit's built-in filtering for both input and output minimizes the need for external filtering components and reduces the overall solution footprint.

Key features and benefits of the SHHN000A3CL isolated DC-DC converters:

  • Wide input voltage range (9-36 volts DC).
  • Space-efficient, low-profile footprint (1-inch-by-1-inch brick).
  • Flexible configuration with surface-mount and through-hole versions available.
  • Built-in current, voltage and temperature protection.
  • Wide-operating temperature range (-40 to 85 C).

Availability and pricing:

The SHHN000A3CL DC-DC converter is now available in original equipment manufacturer quantities, with pricing beginning at $8.20. For more information, please call +1 877 546 3243 or +1 972 244 9288.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
