Tempe, Ariz. — Artesyn Embedded Technologies launched its highest density sixteenth brick isolated DC/DC converter for distributed power applications such as telecom, computing and networking equipment. The AVD100 series of 100 to 120 watt (W), 1/16th brick DC/DC converters are optimized for high density applications with restricted space. They also offer excellent thermal performance and up to 92.5 percent efficiency.
Key features include output over current, short circuit, over voltage and over-temperature protection. The AVD100 series also has an enable pin on the primary side of the converter. The units are an open frame design with baseplate option that make them suitable for either contact-cooled or forced-airflow applications. Standard product options include surface-mount or plated through-hole with different pin lengths and positive and negative enable options.
