Power-One Launches New Family of Wide Input Voltage Isolated DC/DC Converters
Jun 16 14
Power-One introduced a new family of wide input voltage range DC/DC Isolated Converters (Bricks). The Universal Input Brick (UIB) family consists of DOSA compatible Quarter (UIQ), Eighth (UIE) and Sixteenth (UIS) Brick form factors that support a wide input voltage range of 18V(DC) -- 75V(DC) and output voltages of 12.0V(DC), 5.0V(DC) and 3.3V(DC.) The UIB series supplies output power of 240W for the UIQ, 120W for the UIE and 72W for the UIS. These series of DC/DC isolated converters provide efficiencies above 91% at full load and across the entire input voltage range. The UIB family of products provides good power density, for these DOSA compatible models, in the market. Digital control coupled with a forward converter topology that incorporates an active clamp allows for this level of performance. All models support protection for the following events: Over Voltage (OVP), Over Current (OCP), Over Temperature (OTP) and Under Voltage (UVLO). All protection schemes allow for recovery to normal operation once the event is over. The UIB family is available with a baseplate /heat spreader option. Paste-in-Hole (PIH) compatibility is common to all the UIBs including models utilizing the baseplate /heat spreader. The UIQ, UIE and UIS isolated DC/DC converters can be used in telecom, datacom, instrumentation, test equipment, embedded equipment, servers, and storage equipment, or any application that requires isolation and high performance. The wide input voltage range allows for the same model to be used in systems that utilize 24V(BATT,) 48V(BATT) or both backplane voltages providing reduction of inventories in such applications.
