Artesyn intros 85W, 1/16th brick DC-DC converters
Artesyn Embedded Technologies, formerly Emerson Network Power's embedded computing & power business, has introduced a family of 85W, 1/16th brick, high efficiency, fully regulated DC-DC converters. According to the company, the AVD85 delivers excellent thermal performance, high power density of 72.5W/in2 and delivers a peak efficiency of 92 per cent. Aimed at high density applications with restricted space, the devices promise to offer an adjustable output voltage range with a 36-75VDC input range.
The high efficiency of the 1/16th brick converters yields an almost flat derating curve, for the baseplate version of the module, to 85°C ambient temperature under forced airflow conditions. The 3.3V and 12V modules are the first voltage variants available as standard with the 5V variant to follow. Standard product options include baseplate and open-frame, surface-mount or plated through-hole with different pin lengths and positive and negative enable options.
The AVD85 and other DC-DC product ranges will be available through the company's global channel network or directly from Artesyn.
