For Immediate Release

1.2, 1.8, 2.5, 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 24 & 48 VDC expanded line of
4:1 Input High Performance 8th Brick DC-DC Converters

CPE Series Bus ConverterAtkinson, NH – December 6, 2017 – Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. expands it’s line of 4:1 input (9-36, 18-72, 40-160 Vin) “Cool Power Technologies” wide input range 8th brick DC-DC converters designed for use in industrial, test, telecom/communications, networking, data-processing, railway, military, medical and aerospace applications. These high efficiency modules can directly replace larger quarter brick modules saving space and cost (identical pin out and functionality.) These converters feature an industry standard 9-36Vdc or 18-72Vdc (24 or 48Vdc nominal) input voltage ranges and have outputs trimmable +/- 10%. The modules have a typical full load efficiency of 92% which allows for use over a wide ambient temperature range with minimal derating. The open frame design is also available with an optional baseplate for those applications where conduction cooling is required or preferred. This module is compliant with DOSA footprint and interface standards.

These modules meet EN 60950 basic insulation requirements and are UL94 V-0 flammability rated. The modules comply with all of the typical industry requirements including no load operation and 2X nominal input voltage transient capability.

Other features include: fixed-frequency operation, auto-restart OVP, OCP & OTP protections, UVLO and remote sense. Remote ON/OFF is standard with positive or negative logic options available.

The modules feature a standard 8th brick pinout and dimensions of 2.3” L x 0.9” W x 0.404″ Tall (58.4mm x 22.9mm x 10.2mm.) A baseplate version is available for conduction cooling applications with an industry standard height of 0.50″ (12.7mm.)
