Magnetek Inc.'s Power Electronics Group has unveiled its HEQS family of dual-output, quarter-brick dc/dc converters that operate up to 60W and provide an efficiency >87 percent at full-load.

Designed for distributed power architectures (DPA), the HEQS family includes three models capable of delivering 16 different combinations of nominal voltage from 5V down to 0.8V.

Magnetek achieved this "16-in-3" power capability by making the two outputs of each quarter-brick independently adjustable over a wide voltage range.

Industry standard pin-out configuration and lightweight construction make the converters suitable for board-mounting using automated surface-mount technology processes.

Their open frame construction enable the converters to function without heatsinks up to 850C. However, heatsinks can be mounted to allow for higher temperature applications.
