Semiconductor Circuits – Open-frame 16th-brick modules provide up to 100W of output power Jul 21 2015 Semiconductors Print Article Jul 21 2015 Semiconductors Semiconductor Circuits has expanded the power rating of its Cool Power Technologies wide input range 16th-brick DC-DC converter series. The open-frame modules provide up to 100W of output power at output voltages of 2.5, 3.3, 5, and 12VDC making them ideal for distributed power architecture applications or as a fully-regulated intermediate bus converter. The modules are compliant with DOSA 16th-brick footprint and interface standards. The converters have a wide input voltage range of 18VDC to 36VDC or 36VDC to 75VDC and provide 2250VDC input to output isolation. The CPT 2:1 input series meets EN 60950 basic insulation requirements and is UL94 V-0 flammability rated. The module complies with all of the typical industry requirements including no load operation, 2X nominal input voltage transient and pre-biased load start-up. Other features include: fixed-frequency operation, auto-restart OVP, OCP & OTP protections, UVLO, remote sense and +10%/-20% output voltage trim using industry standard equations. Remote ON/OFF is standard with positive or negative logic options available. The modules feature a standard 16th- brick pinout with dimensions of 33.02mm x 22.86mm. They have a maximum height of 10.3mm which accommodates tight card spacing with minimal airflow blockage of downstream components, says the company.
