GAPTEC Electronic launches its new, non-insulated 0.5A SMD switching regulators with wide input voltage range (4.5V~28V). When in use the LMT78 does not require a heat sink and thus need less space on the PCB. The SMD switching regulator comes with an adjustable output voltage and includes a remote ON/OFF control. The series offers a MTBF of > 2 million hours and offer extremely high efficiency up to 96%. The operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C. The LMT78 series offers great short circuit protection and low ripple and noise (typically 10mVp-p at 20MHz bandwidth) and are ideally supply for space constrained mobile applications. At an order quantity of 1000 units, the price per unit (that applies as well for the through hole LMS78 series) is USD 2.49.
