Development of High Density Mini Point-of-Load dc-dc Converter by FDK
FDK leading Japanese and global electronic component and battery manufacturer made an announcement on development of yet another non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) dc-dc converter with a low profile single in-line (SIP) package. The newly developed FPDK12TR8006PSV dc-dc converter is capable of delivering up to 6 Amperes of output current at a power density of over 950 Watts per cubic inch. The newly developed converter has an efficiency of 93% plus it provides a complete power conversion solution without any needs for external input and output capacitors. This new product with in the FDK’s DK Series product is designed to be used in various applications such as telecom, datacom, computing, industrial as well as consumer application where there is a demand for board space saving, smaller profile, higher efficiency, and low overall product cost. The new converters are ideal in such applications where reliable operations in high thermal environments are critical. The new converter comes in a (10.0 x 5.6mm) SIP package with a height of 12.0mm. The onboard footprint of the new FPDK12TR8006PSV is less than 0.6 square centimeters which make it ideal for high density racks, blade systems and consumer applications with limited board-to-board and board-to-case clearances. The FPDK12TR8006PSV operates from 5.6Vdc to 14.0Vdc input providing a tightly programmable output voltage with in the range of 0.8Vdc to 6.6Vdc. Furthermore, the newly developed FPDK12TR8006PSV comes with programmable output voltage, remote ON/OFF, over-temperature protection as well as start-up into a pre-biased output.
