Converter features dual O/P non-isolated digital DC-DC converter
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has added the LGA80D DC-DC module, stocked by Digi-Key, which offers one of the highest current density ratings in the industry and efficiency of 95.5% (typical), to its DC products line. This non-isolated unit offers two independent and configurable 40A, 100W outputs, which can also be combined to a single configurable 80A, 200W output with a footprint of 25.4mm x 12.5mm.
The module offers two independent and configurable 40A, 100W outputs, which can also be combined to a single configurable 80A, 200W output. You can generate higher current rated rails by connecting up to four units in parallel so that up to 320A can be supplied as a single power rail. The input voltage and output voltage specifications remain the same in any configuration so the input is defined as 7.5V to 14V and the output voltage can always be adjusted within the range of 0.6VDC to 5.2VDC at a maximum efficiency of 95.5% by either PMBus or via external resistor configuration.
The device is a unit that is applied in applications by surface-mount technology via its block-pin terminations, can withstand reflow oven temperatures, and is supplied in tape-and-reel packaging for simplest production management.
