Advanced Energy DC-DC Converter Touts 30% Higher Power Density

Article By : Advanced Energy

Advanced Energy's Artesyn LGA110D DC-DC converter delivers a higher current rating at 30% higher power conversion density than any DC-DC converters in its class.

Advanced Energy’s Artesyn LGA110D is a 110A, non-isolated digital point-of-load DC-DC converter that delivers a higher current rating at 30% higher power conversion density than any DC-DC converters in its class, making it a superior solution for a broad range of applications in the industrial, medical, telecom, and IT infrastructure markets.

“Thanks to its market-leading power density, the LGA110D increases operational efficiency to more than 96%,” said Joe Voyles, vice president of marketing, industrial power conversion products at Advanced Energy. “The higher peak efficiency reduces power dissipation by 15% compared to older generations with the same small form factor.”

In addition to its superior current density of 220A/in2, the LGA110D features two independently controlled 55A/175W outputs, which means fewer power converters are needed in multiple channel or high current applications. The dual outputs can be selected as completely independent, configured to a single output or synchronized with up to three other LGA110D converters for truly flexible design combinations. This frees up PCB space and reduces overall system cost while addressing the increasing current requirements in FPGA or ASIC devices used in complex, demanding applications.

With both analog and digital control functions, the LGA110D can be conveniently controlled with external resistors or using the industry standard PMBus digital interface that features additional control functions to offer designers more system integration possibilities.
