40W 32nd Brick DC-DC Converter

Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. introduces the CPZ "Cool Power Technologies" 40W, 32nd brick series of DC-DC converters. This pick & place capable surface-mount module uses solder ball pins that allow it to easily conform to large co-planarity deviations. The product is 0.92" L x 0.90" W x 0.374" H (23.37mm x 22.86mm x 9.5mm) in size, thus using 30% less area than a comparable 16th brick. These modules provide a full 40W of power @ 55C & 200lfm of airflow and are ideal for space constrained distributed power / intermediate bus converter applications. The converter is offered in three wide 2:1 input voltage ranges of 9 - 18, 18 - 36 or 36 - 75VDC. Output voltages of 3.3, 5 & 12V are standard, with other voltages available upon request. Call us with your application, we are your special specialists™!

The CPZ series is a high efficiency module with typical efficiencies exceeding 90% (5V & 12V models). It meets EN 60950 basic insulation requirements & provides 2250VDC input to output isolation. The module complies with the typical industry requirements including no load operation 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.

These units are ideally suited for space constrained applications including networking and telecommunications, data-processing, railway, military, medical and aerospace equipment.
