Tyco Electronics Converters Used by Xilinx Inc.

Four of Tyco Electronics Power Systems dc-dc converters have been adopted by Xilinx Inc.’s AdvancedTCA-compliant development platform. Xilinx launched its Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA) platform at the Intel Developer Forum held the week of February 17 in San Francisco, Calif. Tyco Electronics’ 60-A QPW isolated quarter-brick, 25-A EQW isolated eighth-brick, 10-A Austin Lynx nonisolated and 5-A Austin MicroLynx nonisolated converter series will be standardized on Xilinx’s AdvancedTCA development board. Xilinx’s new offering aims to ease development and reduce design time for designers of line card and backplane applications.

“Tyco Electronics Power Systems offers a wide range of converters that were able to meet all of the AdvancedTCA board’s power requirements, including EMI filtering, hot swap and power protection,” said Robert Bielby, senior director of Strategic Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. “Tyco Electronics provided the design support from a power perspective as well as the modules with output voltages at the right power levels. This board will enable a broad range of applications.”
