For Immediate Release – 96W, 48Vout 4:1 Input 8th Brick for POE Applications

For Immediate Release

48V, 2A 4:1 Input High Performance
8th Brick DC-DC Converter for POE applications

CPE Series POELondonderry, NH – December 27, 2018 – Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. introduces the CPE2U36 “Cool Power Technologies” 48V, 2A wide input range 8th brick DC-DC converter. This open frame module provides up to 96W of power and is ideal for power over Ethernet or other distributed power architecture applications. This module is compliant with DOSA footprint and interface standards. It has a wide input voltage range of 18 to 72VDC (9-36Vin version available soon) & provides 2250VDC input to output isolation.

The CPE2U36 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%/-30% output voltage trim using industry standard equations (33 – 53 Vout.) 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 13.2mm (0.520”) or 12.7 (0.50″) in a baseplated model for applications needing extended thermal performance.

A technical datasheet is available at this link & sample quantities can be ordered directly from stock via the website. Please contact or call 603-893-2330 for OEM pricing and availability.
