For Immediate Release

50V, 1.2A 2:1 Input High Performance
8th Brick DC-DC Converter for POE applications

CPE Series POELondonderry, NH – March 10, 2014 – Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. introduces the CPE1U48 “Cool Power Technologies” 50V, 1.2A wide input range 8th brick DC-DC converter. This open frame module provides a full 60W of 50V power @ 70C & 200lfm of airflow – ideal for power over Ethernet or distributed power architecture applications. This module is compliant with DOSA footprint and interface standards. It has a wide input voltage range of 36 to 75VDC & provides 2250VDC input to output isolation.

The CPE1U48 is a high efficiency module with efficiencies exceeding 90%. It meets EN 60950 basic insulation requirements and is UL94 V-0 flammability rated. The module complies with all of the typical industry requirements including no load operation and 100V/100mS input voltage transient.

Other features include: fixed-frequency operation, auto-restart OVP, OCP & OTP protections, UVLO, remote sense and +10%/-20% output voltage trim using industry standard equations. Remote ON/OFF is standard with positive or negative logic options available.

The module features a standard 8th brick pinout and dimensions of 2.3” L x 0.9” W (58.4mm x 22.9mm.) It has a maximum height of 10.3mm (0.404”) which accommodates tight card spacing with minimal airflow blockage of downstream components.
