MINMAX MDW(I)15 Watt & MDW(I)12 Watt DC-DC Converters in a tiny DIP-16 housing (package)

Match your choice of converter with your choice of application

MINMAX supplies the MDW(I)15 and MDW(I)12 DC-DC converter families, offered in 15 W and 12 W respectively. They feature wide input voltage, 1500VDC isolation, high efficiency and ambient temperature ranges by -40℃ to +85℃, in addition to the necessary safety features to enable design flexibility in key end designs.

These DC-DC converters occupy just 0.5in2 of PCB space within a small encapsulated industry-standard DIP-16 package, the power density up to 75W/in3 making them ideal for space-constrained applications.

Both the MDW(I)15 and MDW(I)12 converters by MINMAX come in many different variations with wide voltage ranges; the MDW12 & MDW15 being a 2:1 input voltage range and the MDWI12 & MDWI15 featuring an ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage range.
