PQ60050QTx30 DC-DC Converter










DC-DC Converter

Product Details

The PQ60050QTA30 PowerQor® Tera quarter-brick 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. 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. The Tera series offers the maximum useable output current for any standard “quarter-brick” module. RoHS compliant (see page 13).

Operational Features

• Ultra-high efficiency, >90% at full rated load current
• Delivers up to 30 amps of output current (150W) with minimal derating - no heatsink required
• Wide input voltage range: 35 – 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 quarter-brick pin-out configuration
• Industry standard size: 1.45” x 2.3” (36.8x58.4mm)
• Total height less than 0.43” (10.9mm), permits better airflow and smaller card pitch
• Total weight: 1.5 oz. (42 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

• 2000 V, 30MΩ input-to-output isolation
• UL 60950-1:2003, basic insulation
• CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60950-1:2003
• EN60950-1:2001
• RoHS compliant (see page 13)

Protection Features

• Input under-voltage lockout disables converter at low input voltage conditions
• Output current limit and short circuit protection protects converter and load from permanent damage and consequent hazardous conditions
• Active back bias limit prevents damage to converter from external load induced pre-bias
• Output over-voltage protection protects load from damaging voltages
• Thermal shutdown protects converter from abnormal environmental conditions
