R78 – the perfect substitute for inefficient linear supplies

When we started the development of the R-78 in 2005 we soon realized the enormous potential. This product enabled the replacement of inefficient linear supplies with a converter that features 97% efficiency, thereby obsoleting the use of a heat-sink. Being also pin-compatible it was easy to integrate into already existing designs.

Meanwhile our product has been copied by our competitors – which we observe with some satisfaction, particularly when we see them economizing “at the wrong end”. Lately we have come across copies featuring our RECOM-logo, which prompted us to also protect our name in China.
