SynQor's Dual Output Quarter-brick DC-DC converter delivers 60W at +12V/-12V


Hudson, Mass - SynQor announced today a dual output voltage, industry standard quarter-brick sized isolated DC-DC converter. The DualQor series is capable of delivering up to 60 Watts of total output power at +12V and -12V, without the need for an attached heatsink. The converter module employs synchronous rectification and a patented topology to achieve efficiencies up to 92%.

The DualQor converter has a 48V nominal input (35V to 75V range) and meets input voltage transient requirements up to 100V for 100ms. The quarter-brick sized units can deliver up to 5 amps at +12Vout for a total of 60 Watts of output power. The converter features an industry-standard footprint of 1.45" x 2.3", a low profile of 0.43" and the industry recognized pin out configuration. SynQor's DualQor family is designed and manufactured for increased reliability and features a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 2.5 million hours.

The DualQor series of DC-DC converters is targeted towards the telecom, datacom, computer, industrial and medical markets. The module is suited for a variety of applications where a dual source of +12V regulated DC current is needed, including DSL line drivers and op amps.

The latest DualQor module expands the dual output converter line and complements SynQor's broad offering of single output, high-efficiency converters. SynQor's unique no-baseplate, no-heatsink design offers lower height, weight, cost, and application effort while providing more useable power in less space. Advanced control and protection features include on/off control, voltage trim, short circuit, output over-voltage, thermal shutdown and back-drive current limit protection.
