Artesyn Embedded Technologies today reported the LGA80D dc-dc module, which is claimed to offers one of the highest current density ratings in the industry and business sector driving effectiveness of 95.5 percent typical. With a footprint of just 25.4 x 12.5mm, this innovative non-isolated unit offers two independent and configurable 40 amp, 100 watt outputs, which can also be combined to a single configurable 80 amp, 200 watt output. Design engineers can likewise create higher current evaluated rails by associating up to 4 units in parallel so that up to 320 amps can be supplied as a single power rail.
Both analogue control and digital control functions are empowered on this unit, so the LGA80D can be controlled with resistors or controlled and observed by utilizing the industry standard PMBus digital interface. Artesyn’s LGA80D digital DC/DC converter is appropriate for use in applications, for example, graphics, data or video processing, utilizing high power devices, such as , server processors, FPGAs, supercomputers, network, storage and telecom equipment
As the circuit board in telecom and data center system have turned out to bemore complex and densely populated, each component is under pressure to give maximum value with the extra focus of diminishing the physical size,” said Andy Brown, dc-dc technical marketing director for Artesyn Embedded Technologies. “The key is to increase the amps per square inch current density of non-isolated converters with the objective of freeing up space that can be used to increase the computing power of a board by reducing the amount of real estate used for power conversion.Including one square inch can have a noteworthy effect, with the released space accessible to be utilized for extra processing functions.”
