DC-DC Converter

Product Details

The PQ60012HPAA0 PowerQor™ Peta converter is a next-generation, board-mountable, isolated, fixed switching frequency 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 Peta series converters offer industry leading output current for a standard “half-brick” module. The Peta units also feature active current sharing for N+1 and parallel applications.

Operational Features

• High efficiency, 95% at full rated load current
• Delivers up to 20A of output current
• Input Voltage Range: 9-20 Vdc
• Output Voltage Range: 0 - 20V (negative output is possible)
• Extensive on-board input and output filtering
• No minimum load requirement means no preload resistors required
• Buck or buck-boost versions available
• Adjustable current limit with current monitor (C option)

Mechanical Features

• Industry standard eighth-brick pin-out configuration
• Sizes: .99" x 2.39" (25 x 60.6 mm)
• Total height only 0.500" (12.7 mm)
• Total weight: 1.7oz (48g)

Control Features

• On/Off control referenced to input side (positive and negative logic options are available)
• Remote sense for the output voltage compensates for output distribution drops
• Output voltage trim permits custom voltages and voltage margining

Safety Features

• 2000V, 30 MΩ input-to-output isolation
• UL 60950 recognized (US & Canada), basic insulation rating
• TUV certified to EN60950
• Meets 72/23/EEC and 93/68/EEC directives
• Meets UL94V-0 flammability requirements

Protection Features

• Input under-voltage lockout protects the converter at low input voltage conditions
• Over-current shutdown protects converter from excessive load current or short circuits
• Input/output over-voltage protection protects load and regulator from damaging voltages
• Thermal shutdown protects converter from abnormal environmental conditions
