The 173011235 from Wurth Elektronik is a Fixed Buck DC-DC Converter that steps down an input voltage of 16 - 36 V to an output voltage of 12 V. It delivers an output current of up to 1 A. This converter has a switching frequency of 520 kHz and an efficiency of 92%. It consists of an inductor, and capacitors in a single package and uses an external input capacitor to deliver optimal performance that reduces both the design effort and complexity.
This REACH-compliant converter is designed to ensure fast time-to-market and low development costs. It consists of an internal soft-start function, cycle-by-cycle current limit, and short-circuit protection systems to prevent any over-current-related damages. This RoHS-compliant converter is available in a through-hole package that measures 11.6 x 8 x 10.4 mm and is ideal for point-of-load DC-DC converters, a replacement for linear regulators, interfaces, microcontroller supplies, and general-purpose applications.
