Press Release


SynQor's Sixteenth Brick Provides up to 66W

1.3" x 0.9" package provides best in class thermal performance

Boxborough, Mass. - May 31st, 2006 - SynQor is proud to announce the release of the PQ60033SGL20, the first in our fully 6/6 RoHS compliant, sixteenth brick DC-DC converter family. The PQ60033SGL20 has a full 36-75V Telco input range and provides an isolated 3.3V output with up to 66W of usable power in a 1.17sq in footprint. Using the DOSA standard pinout and footprint, the sixteenth brick uses 43% less board space than eighth brick converters.

The PQ60033SGL20 utilizes a synchronous rectification topology to provide excellent thermal performance with a virtually flat derating curve. The module provides the full rated current of 20A at 70degC, 200LFM - over 3A more available current than other sixteenth bricks on the market, and up to 4A more than similarly rated eighth bricks.

The compact size of 1.3" x 0.9" frees up board real estate for designs with limited board space. The low profile height of 0.332" also makes the converter optimal for applications with low board-to-board spacing constraints.

The 35-75Vin PQ60033SGL20 is capable of withstanding transients on the input to 100V for 100ms, and has a basic isolation level from input to output of 2000Vdc. Standard control features include +/-10% trim, remote sense, and remote on/off. The converter's standard protection features include input under voltage lockout (UVLO), output over voltage (OVP), over current (OCP), over temperature (OTP), and short circuit protection. Operating temperature range is -40 to +100degC.

Sample and production quantities are available immediately with a stock to 8-week lead-time. The modules are priced at $48.00 in OEM quantities. For additional information, please contact your local SynQor representative.
