SynQor Introduces 12V/7A SMT Non-Isolated DC-DC Converter for IBA Applications
Exceptional efficiency and transient response sets new industry standards for performance
Boxborough, Mass. - January 24, 2006 - Today, SynQor announces a new addition to
its non-isolated, NiQor product line - the NQ10W50PKA07 series. This new DC-DC converter
is optimized to provide high efficiency, fast transient response, and low output
noise in one of the smallest packages in the industry. The NQ10W50PKA07 series delivers
a full 7A of output current and is perfect as a low voltage POL converter in Intermediate
Bus Architecture (IBA) applications.
Reducing output noise by as much as 75% and providing up to 5% improved efficiency,
the NQ10W50PKA07 series sets a new standard in high performance, non-isolated DC-DC
converters. These converters have a 10.2-13.2V input voltage range and a 0.75-5.0V
output voltage range. The modules are up to 94% efficient and can supply the full
rated output of 7.0A up to 85C with just 100LFM (0.5m/s) of airflow. Excellent thermal
performance, minimal power dissipation, and a low profile height of just 0.232"
make the NQ10W50PKA07 ideal for environments with low airflow and strict power requirements.
In addition, the small footprint of 0.4" x 0.9" enables increased layout and design
The NQ10W50PKA07 is available in four different variations, allowing the customer
to choose the version most optimized for their application. These versions include
a discontinuous mode to achieve high conversion efficiency at both low and high
output voltages, or a forced continuous mode to achieve an extremely fast transient
response and low output voltage ripple. Both modes have an option to use an internal
reference point, which provides +/- 5% margining using digital input signals, or
an external reference point, which allows custom voltages to be set using an external
reference voltage. Standard control and protection features include On/Off control
positive logic, input UVLO, remote sense, foldback current limit and short circuit
protection, and thermal shutdown.
Sample and production quantities are available immediately with a stock to 8-week
lead-time. The modules are priced at $15.70 in OEM quantities. For additional information,
