DC-DC Converter

Product Details

The PQ55540HTL05 PowerQor® Tera half-brick converter is a next-generation, board mountable, isolated, fixed switching frequemcy DC/DC converter that uses synchronous rectification to achieve extremely high conversion efficiency. The power dissipated by the converter is so low that a heatsink is not required, which saves cost, weight, height and application effort. The Tera series converters offer the maximum useable output power for a standard "half-brick" modules. The 54V Tera units are designed to be used primarily in Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications. RoHS compliant (see page 12).
