Tyco Electronics Power Systems Inc. released its EQW010-040 series of DC/DC converters, an extensive line of new generation, eighth brick, DC/DC power modules designed for regulated single output voltages ranging from 1Vdc to 12Vdc.

The EQW series delivers up to 10A at 12V, 20A at 5V, 30A at 3.3V, 35A at 2.5V, and 40A of output current for 1.8V and lower output voltages. These converters are designed for use in distributed power architectures, wireless networks, access and optical network equipment, enterprise networks for powering the latest generation ICs (DSP, FPGA, ASIC), and microprocessor powered applications.

The new converters operate over a wide input voltage range of 36Vdc to 75Vdc, providing a single, precisely regulated output with full load efficiency of 92 percent at 3.3V output. This high efficiency converter series employs half-bridge conversion topology with highly optimized synchronous rectification and incorporates innovative edge-plating and packaging techniques to deliver superior thermal performance. Built-in filtering for both input and output minimizes the need for external filtering.

The EQW010-040 series is rated for wide operating temperature range in an industry standard eighth-brick package of 57.9-by-22.9-by-8.5mm. Standard features include: remote on/off, remote sense, monotonic start-up under pre-bias conditions, zero reverse current during start-up and shutdown, over-temperature protection, input under/overvoltage protection, and output overcurrent/voltage protection.

Each EQW010-040 module is priced at $38.20 for 1,000 units. Samples are already available.
