Artesyn Embedded Technologies has introduced a line-up of DC-DC converters that promises to give telecom and networking equipment manufacturers up to 94.5 per cent efficiency. The first two models in AVO200 series of 200W fully-regulated 1/8th brick DC-DC converters target the 12V and 5V needs of communications installations, stated the company.

The devices are intended for cost-sensitive, small space, high current and low voltage applications such as wireless, optical, or access networks, or server and computing infrastructure.


The AVO200 series converters accept the telecommunication standard wide input range of 36VDC to 75VDC. The 12V model delivers up to 16.7A output current, while the 5V model provides up to 40A output. They offer excellent thermal performance in an operating range of -40C to 85C and are available in either open frame or baseplate design, allowing for optimised conduction or forced airflow cooling, detailed the company.

The converters boast features that allows for easier design and deployment, as well as low ripple and noise, fixed switching frequency, high capacitive load capability, pre-bias start-up capability, output voltage remote sense. All variants are fitted with through-hole terminations. The converters are protected against overcurrent, over-temperature and over-voltage conditions. They also have an enable pin on the primary side of the converter and remote-sense features and output voltage adjust function on the secondary side. The industry-standard eighth-brick outline measures 58.4mm x 22.9mm x 9.6mm for open frame and 58.4mm x 22.9mm x 12.7mm for baseplate.
