A DC to DC Converter is a device which is used to convert direct current from one level to another. It either converts a higher voltage level to lower or lower voltage level to higher. DC to DC Converter only changes the level of direct electric charge. For information, the flow of direct electric charge is in a single direction, whereas alternating electric charge is completely opposite to it. Alternating electric charge moves in multiple directions. Simply, there is a total change in both forward and backward positions among two different electric charges that are known as AC and DC. Some people who might not be familiar with physics may get confused after reading the word “electric charge”. For your kind information, electric charge is another name of current or you can say in the terminology of engineering, current is referred as electric charge.  So don’t take it very hard, just get familiar with it and move forward to read in which devices a DC to DC Converter is used.
  • Uses of DC to DC Converter
There are many uses of DC to DC Converter in the society, yet we are unaware of it. You might not know, but DC to DC Converter is used every day in chargers or connectors for laptops, mobile devices, cellular phones and tablets and so on. Moreover, you can say that it is used for most of the devices that contain a battery or anything relative to it. Knowing the definition and uses of this converter isn’t enough, whereas reading about its types/kinds is also good, because it will help you when you personally go to the market for purchasing any converter. To be very honest, rarely someone or technical professional goes to purchase DC to DC Converter, as all the devices contain built-in converters.
  • Types of DC to DC Converter
DC to DC Converter comes in different types that include chassis mounting, through-line, and SMD. These converters are not used alone. It is necessary to use switching regulators along with any of these converters. The main role of the regulator is to control the level of electric charge. You will find a great range of converters and may be regulators available at Chondatech.com in various wattages, which range from 2.25 watt to 200 watts. Further, it is really a major point that these converters are CE Approved, RoHS compliant and UL-listed. There might be need of an isolated DC to DC Converter in such a case when the device is going to be used for medical applications. For more info, please visit http://www.chondatech.com/
