DC/DC Converter Breakout - Ding'n'Dent

Replacement:BOB-09370. These were the result of a manufacturing screw up and so we had a limited quantity, but you can still get the standard version. This page is for reference only.

This is a breakout board for our non-isolated, 6A DC-to-DC Converter Module. The module can convert any DC voltage between 4.5-14VDC to a selectable voltage between 0.59 and 5.5VDC.

To set the output voltage to the desired level, a resistor must be added between the Trim and GND pins. For example, to set the module to output 5V use a 1.34kΩ resistor, or to get 3.3V use a 2.182kΩ. See table 1 in the module's datasheet for more resistor values.

The ON/OFF pin on the board can be pulled high to turn the converter module on and low to turn it off.

Board comes as shown, with all components (aside from the trim resistor) populated. Access to all pins of the converter module is provided by two, 0.1" pitch headers.

  • 4.5-14V Input voltage
  • 0.59V-5.5VDC Regulated output
  • 6A max output current
  • Low output ripple and noise
  • -40C to 85C operating temperatures
  • All pins of converter module broken out to 0.1" headers

    Is that a Dorkbot board? I like his stuff, great quality boards in my opinion.

      No, SparkFun gets their boards from Gold Phoenix in China. This was just a manufacturing error.

      I like Laen's (from Dorkbotpdx) boards as well. They are very easy to solder to, especially since they have the immersion gold coating.

    Hideous color. ;)

    I was going to say that we could expect a bunch of these boards in the Scrap Boards, but I can't find them any more. What happened to the Scrap Boards?

    Shouldn't this product be named "The DC-to-DC converter formally known as BOB-09370?";)
