Dual Output Quarter-brick DC/DC converter
SynQor's new Dual Output Quarter-brick DC/DC converter delivers 40W at 3.3V & 2.5V
SynQor announced today a dual output voltage, industry standard "quarter-brick" sized isolated dc/dc converter. The DualQor™ series is capable of delivering up to 40 Watts of total output power at 3.3V and 2.5V, without the need for an attached heatsink. The converter module employs synchronous rectification and a patented topology to achieve efficiencies up to 87%.

The DualQor converter has a 48V nominal input (35V to 75V range) and meets input voltage transient requirements up to 100V for 100ms. The quarter-brick sized units can deliver up to 12 amps at 3.3Vout or 16 amps at 2.5Vout for a total of 40 Watts of output power. The converter features an industry-standard footprint of 1.45" x 2.3", a low profile of 0.43" and the industry recognized pin out configuration.

SynQor's expansion of the dual output converter line complements their broad offering of single output, high-efficiency converters. Their unique no-baseplate, no-heatsink design offers lower height, weight, cost, and application effort while providing more useable power in less space. Advanced control and protection features include on/off control, voltage trim, short circuit, output over-voltage, and thermal shutdown.

The DualQor series of dc/dc converters is targeted towards the converging telecom and datacom markets. These companies require high power densities with multiple low output voltages to power today's next-generation communications products. SynQor is meeting these challenges by increasing efficiency and output power while reducing converter size and eliminating the need for a heatsink.

The DualQor 3.3/2.5V dual output quarter-brick converters will begin production volume shipping in February 2002 and are available direct from SynQor and through their network of distributors. The standard modules are priced at $104.00 in 1,000 unit quantities.
