SynQor Introduces 24 Volt Input Quarter-brick Converters


Hudson, Mass - SynQor has expanded its performance-leading family of DC-DC converters to cover 24V input applications. The new "quarter-brick" sized converters provide high-efficiency, high current output and low heat dissipation, which allows for operation without a baseplate or heatsink.

The 24Vin quarter-brick converters support a 2:1 input voltage range from 18 to 36V, with nine models from 1.5Vout to 15Vout. The new high-efficiency units can deliver up to 25 amps of output current or 100 watts of power without the need for a heatsink. Modules use synchronous rectification and a patented topology to achieve full-load efficiencies up to 87 percent for a 3.3Vout unit. The converter features an industry-standard footprint of 1.45" x 2.3", while remaining low in profile and weight (0.4", 1.2 oz.).

Advanced control and protection features include on/off control, remote sense, voltage trim, short circuit, output over-voltage, and thermal shutdown. These features allow advanced functionality, while standard safety certifications allow easy integration into the end user's product. Additionally, the single PCB construction with no baseplate provides increased reliability.

"The 24V input converters will open new markets to SynQor's patented high-efficiency technology", Martin Schlecht, SynQor CEO, said. Markets applicable to the 24Vin converter include wireless base stations, process control, and industrial applications.

SynQor's line of PowerQor converters is available in a variety of performance grades. The "Tera" grade provides maximum power, output current and efficiency, while the "Giga", "Mega", and "Kilo" grades are fine-tuned for successively lower performance requirements. The new 24Vin quarter-brick converters are part of the "Giga" performance grade series.
