SynQor adds 12V, 16A Eighth Brick to its BusQor Family

4:1 Fixed Ratio Output Ideal for 12V Bus Applications

Boxborough, Mass. - March 27, 2006 - As evidenced by today's release of the BQ55120ETL16, SynQor continues to expand its BusQor family of bus converters. The BQ55120ETL16 has a 35-55V input voltage range, a 4:1 fixed ratio output voltage, and up to 16A of available output current, making it a solid choice for 12V bus converter applications that are under 200W.

The BQ55120ETL16 meets the industry standard eighth brick footprint and pinout, and has a low-profile height of just 0.32". Available in a single board, open frame construction, it is able to provide the full rated load of 16A at 48Vin, 55C with 200LFM (1.0 m/s) of airflow. The BQ55120ETL16 has exceptional performance, providing greater than 95% efficiency at half and full loads, which significantly reduces the amount of power dissipated by the module and the amount of cooling required for operation.

Standard protection features include input UVLO, input over-voltage shutdown, current limit, short circuit, and thermal shutdown. The modules meet UL60950 basic insulation requirements and provide isolation from input to output of 2000Vdc.

Sample and production quantities are available with general lead times being stock to 8-weeks. Fully RoHS compliant modules are available in sample and production quantities with a stock to 12-week lead-time. The modules are priced at $53.90 in OEM quantities.
