Sixteenth Brick DC/DC Converters Debut As Industry's First

Measuring 41.9 mm x 20.3 mm x 8.3mm, the 50W ALX series dc/dc converters debut as the industry's first sixteenth-brick converters, while maintaining the same quarter-brick and eighth-brick pin locations and functionality. They provide 15A to 20A of output current with input voltages from 36V to 75V. The 1.8V and 1.2V models deliver up to 20A, the 2.5V model 15A, and 3.3V units up to 18A. Efficiencies are as high as 88% for a 1.8V model with minimal power derating at high ambient temperatures. Standard features include over-voltage, over-current, and over-temperature protection, under-voltage lockout with hysteresis, an output trim pin, and an enable pin with positive or negative logic controls. The converters also include basic insulation from input to output and have a mean time between failures of greater than 1-million hours. Prices start from $40.75 each in OEM quantities.
