TDK 1.4 to 3W DC-DC converters operate from a 12V input and provide very low noise output voltages of up to 2,000V

May 26th, 2021
tdk-lambda-logo

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the high voltage output CHVM series of DC-DC converters. Capable of operating from a nominal 12V input, these non-isolated converters deliver output voltages ranging from 180V to 2,000V. Low output ripple and noise is achieved through the use of a metallic case that provides five-sided shielding to reduce radiated emissions. The CHVM has been designed for use in noise sensitive applications, including photomultiplier tubes, photodiodes, scanning electron microscopes, X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, mass spectrometers and ultrasonic probes.
