Supports 48-volt data center and network applications
HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 8 January
2020 - Artesyn
Embedded Power, an Advanced Energy (Nasdaq: AEIS) company, today announced
the BDQ1300, a new 1300 watt quarter-brick dc-dc converter, designed to provide
the highest efficiency on-board 12V output for telecom, computing and server
applications, with optional digital control. With efficiency rated over 97
percent, the BDQ1300 is designed as a voltage source for non-isolated
point-of-load converters. It can accept an input voltage range from 40 to 60
volts, making it ideal for 48-volt data center and communications network
Rated for up to 110 amps, the Artesyn BDQ1300 is a fully isolated dc-dc converter,
which can be applied with separate input and output ground connections. This isolation
means that EMI management and any possible fault condition can be contained within
the primary side of the converter. The modules use a standard high-current quarter-brick
pin-out. A pair of power pins are provided for the positive output and ground
connections to enable the current to be conducted to the host PCB. Conduction
losses from the module are minimized using large diameter pins.
BDQ1300 has been designed to primarily support two power-conversion
architectures," said Andy Brown, director of technical marketing dc-dc for
Artesyn Embedded Power. "Either the conventional and widely used 'two-stage'
conversion architecture network, where the BDQ1300 only provides power to
non-isolated, 12V input point-of-load converters such as Artesyn's LGA80D or LGA50D families; or the module can
also be used to support a hybrid conversion architecture. This is where some of
the application's power is converted with 48 V to low-voltage 'direct
conversion' products, such as those being developed by members of the Power Stamp Alliance, and -- operating alongside
this direct conversion network -- a conventional two-stage conversion network."
The module can operate between minus 40 degrees Celsius and
85 degrees Celsius with air cooling, and it offers options for base plate
is available without the four-pin PMBus connection, which gives a solution of
maximum conversion performance with minimum control complexity. The four-pin PMBus
header provides standard PMBus control and monitoring functions such as voltage
and current monitoring, start-up and shutdown control, protection feature warning
and shutdown limits, temperature monitoring functions and revision-control
The BDQ1300 is available from Artesyn's global network of sales
representatives, distributors and value added resellers.
