June 18, 2014 - Semiconductor Circuits expands the power rating of CPT “Cool Power Technologies” wide input range 16th brick DC-DC converter series. These open frame modules provide up to 100W of output power @ output voltages of 2.5, 3.3, 5.0, and 12Vdc – ideal for distributed power architecture applications or as a fully regulated intermediate bus converter. These modules are compliant with DOSA 16th brick footprint and interface standards. These converters have a wide input voltage range of 18 to 36 or 36 to 75 VDC & provide 2250 VDC input to output isolation. The CPT 2:1 input series meets EN 60950 basic insulation requirements and is UL94 V-0 flammability rated. The module complies with all of the typical industry requirements including no load operation, 2X nominal input voltage transient and pre-biased load startup. Other features include: fixed-frequency operation, auto-restart OVP, OCP & OTP protections, UVLO, remote sense and +10%/-20% output voltage trim using industry standard equations. Remote ON/OFF is standard with positive or negative logic options available. The modules feature a standard 16th brick pinout with dimensions of 1.3” L x 0.9” W (33.02mm x 22.86mm.) They have a maximum height of 0.404″ (10.3mm) which accommodates tight card spacing with minimal airflow blockage of downstream components.
