DC/DC Converter Replaces 78xx Linear Regulator

Murata’s OKI-78SR-E series three-terminal, non-isolated dc/dc converters are reliable for use in harsh environment applications. They are offered as cost effective, highly efficient alternatives to a T0-220/78xx series linear regulator and viable for almost any application where a single output of 3.3V, 5V or 12V is required.


Efficiency of the 12V OKI-78SR-12/1.0-W36E-C device when powered from a 24 V source is greater than 95%, eliminating the need for a heat sink, reducing cost, and complexity during the manufacturing process. Other features include:
