The Tomodachi Brick series has an ultra-wide input voltage range from 18Vdc to 75Vdc that covers both 24Vin and 48Vin and provide a tightly regulated output voltages. There are three (3) modules, 3.3Vdc/15A, 5Vdc/10A and 12Vdc/4.2A and the modules are compatible with those from GE Energy.

The modules are offered in DOSA standard 1/16th Brick footprint measuring 33 x 22.9mm (1.3” x 0.9”) in both through-hole and SMD package. They are targeted toward telecommunications, data communications, and industrial applications where board space, cost, efficiency, and reliable operation in elevated temperature environments are critical. These modules employ output overcurrent/voltage protection, over-temperature protection, remote ON/OFF and output voltage margining.

“The Tomodachi Brick series gives customers the ability to establish multiple sources with minimal design effort,” said Mr. Hitoshi Matsushima, chief technical officer at FDK. “FDK will continue to add the ultra-wide input voltage products to its isolated power module product line.”

All the Tomodachi Brick series products are RoHS II compliant. In quantities of 1,000, the module costs $16.
