PQ60015ETx45 DC-DC Converter










DC-DC Converter

Product Details

The PowerQor® Eighth-brick converter series is composed of next-generation, board-mountable, isolated, fixed switching frequency dc-dc converters that use synchronous rectification to achieve extremely high power 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. All of the power and control components are mounted to the multi-layer PCB substrate with high-yield surface mount technology. Since the PowerQor converter has no explicit thermal interfaces, it is extremely reliable. RoHS Compliant (see last page).

Operational Features

• High efficiency, 87% at full load
• Delivers up to 45 amps of output current with minimal derating
- no heatsink required
• Wide input voltage range: 35V – 75V, with 100V 100ms input voltage transient capability
• Fixed frequency switching provides predictable EMI performance
• No minimum load requirement means no preload resistors required

Mechanical Features

• Industry standard eighth-brick pin-out configuration
• Industry standard size: 0.90” x 2.3” (22.9x58.4mm)
• Total height only 0.320” (8.13mm), permits better airflow and smaller card pitch
• Total weight: 0.85 oz. (24 grams)
• Flanged pins designed to permit surface mount soldering (avoid wave solder) using FPiP technique

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

• 2250V, 30 MΩ input-to-output isolation provides input/output ground separation
• UL 60950-1 recognized (US & Canada),basic insulation rating
• TUV certified to EN60950-1
• Board and plastic components meet UL94V-0 flammability requirements

Protection Features

• Input under-voltage lockout disables converter at low input voltage conditions
