DC/DC power conversion modules target telecom, datacom
The SlimLynx Series of encapsulated and non-isolated DC/DC conversion power modules operate over a wide range of input voltages from 3 to 14.4V(DC) and provide a precisely regulated output voltage from 0.45 to 5.5V(DC), programmable via an external resistor or via PMBus control in the case of the digital modules. Module versions in the series offer either 6A or 12A of output current.
Solid State Supplies is now stocking the GE modules which come in both digital and analogue power converters that target applications in distributed power and intermediate bus voltage architectures widely used in the telecom and datacom sectors, as well as in servers, storage and networking equipment.
Available in a DOSA (Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance) approved footprint and measuring 20.32 x 11.43 x 3mm (maximum), the SlimLynx modules feature an ultra-low-height design for very dense power applications.
The ultra-slim modules provide industry-leading power density to reduce heat dissipation in industrial, networking and telecommunication devices, while also delivering exceptionally high efficiency, peaking at over 95 per cent.
Features of the digital modules include a digital interface using the PMBus protocol, which supports a range of commands to both control and monitor the module. All the modules feature remote On/Off, adjustable output voltage, plus over current and over temperature protection in the controller.
All devices also include GE’s Tunable Loop feature, which allows users to optimise the dynamic response of the converter to match the load with a reduced amount of output capacitance, leading to savings in terms of cost and board area.
