9. SynQor Unveils 53V, 7.6A Output Half Brick DC/DC Converter

SynQor has introduced a 53V, 7.6A output half brick dc/dc
converter in both an open frame and base plated version,
ideal for VoIP applications.

The PQ5553HEA08 (open frame version) and PQ5553HEB08 (base-
plated version) converters use synchronous rectification and
SynQor’s own topology to support an input voltage range of
38-55V, while operating at 95% efficiency. The open frame
device can supply up to 265W at 55∞C ambient with just 200LFM
(1m/s) of forced air-cooling. The base-plated option allows
the addition of a heatsink to increase the available power
to the full 360W rating.

The device has a basic isolation level from input to output
of 2250Vdc. The wide trim range of -50% to +5% adds additional
flexibility for the user to adjust to their desired output
voltage. Other control and protection features include remote
sense, input UVLO, output OVP, current limit, short circuit,
and thermal shutdown.

Sample and production quantities are available immediately with
a stock to 8-week lead-time. The modules are priced at $97.00 in
OEM quantities for the open frame version.
