UCC12040/50 3 kVRMS and 5 kVRMS Isolated DC/DC Converters

UCC12040/50 3 kVRMS and 5 kVRMS Isolated DC/DC Converters


Texas Instruments’ 500 mW, high-efficiency low-EMI converters are suitable for ultra-high voltage applications.

Texas Instruments’ UCC12040 and UCC12050 DC/DC converters with 3 kVRMS and 5 kVRMS reinforced isolation ratings, respectively, are designed to provide efficient, isolated power to isolated circuits that require a bias supply with well-regulated output voltages. These devices integrate a transformer and DC/DC controller with proprietary architecture to provide 500 mW (typical) of isolated power with high efficiency and low EMI.

The UCC12040/50 converters integrate protection features for increase system robustness. The devices feature an enable pin, synchronization capability and regulated 5 V or 3.3 V output options with the headroom. These low-profile, miniaturized converter solutions are available in a wide-body SOIC package with 2.65 mm height (typical).
