Product Description


DCDC-USB-200 – Intelligent buck-boost DC-DC converter with USB interface

   DCDC-USB-200 is a high power buck-boost microcontroller DC-DC converter. This unit accepts any input ranging from 6-34V.

   Output is 12V regulated or output can be changed with simple jumper settings to 5V, 6V, 9V, 12V, 13.5V, 18V or 24V or via USB in fine increments (0.25V) anywhere from 5-24V.

Applications:
powering motherboard with single rail power from any voltage to any voltage, laptops, custom electronics.     This module can be used to convert any voltage ranging 6-34V to any output volatage from 5-24V.

   The DCDC-USB-200 has 4 modes of operation:

  • Dumb mode: Acts as a regular buck-boost DC-DC converter with wide input (6-34V) and produces a fixed 12V output (or any output from 5-24V)
  • Automotive mode: Acts as an intelligent PSU, ignition aware, will send ON/OFF pulse to the motherboard to turn ON/OFF. Standby power consumption is well under 1mA.
  • UPS mode: The unit will act as an intelligent UPS unit, will shut down at prescribed battery voltages.
  • Script mode: Unit can be programmed to wake up, sleep, based on pre-programmed scripts.
