FDK DC/DC Converter Comes In SIP Package

FDK has extended its DK Series of non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) DC/DC converters with the FPDK12TR8006PSV converter in a low-profile single-in-line (SIP) package. The converter delivers up to 6A of output current at a power density exceeding 950W/in3. It has an efficiency of up to 93 per cent and provides a complete power-conversion solution without the need for external input and output capacitors.

The converter is designed for a range of telecommunications, data-communications, computing, industrial and consumer applications where board space, cost, profile, efficiency and reliable operation in elevated temperature environments are critical. The FPDK12TR8006PSV is offered in a 0.394 x 0.220in (10.0 x 5.6mm) SIP package, with a height of 0.472in (12.0mm).

Its low profile makes it particularly suitable for high-density racks, blade systems and consumer applications with limited board-to-board and board-to-case clearances. The converter operates from a 5.6 to 14.0V DC input and provides a tightly regulated, programmable output voltage in the 0.8 to 6.6V DC range.

It is a true single-input converter in that it does not require an external VCC (bias) supply for operation. At an output voltage of 3.3V DC, this 6A converter delivers the full rated output current with no derating up to 65C with 400LFM (2m/s) airflow. It features programmable output voltage, remote on/off, over-current and over-temperature protection, and startup into a pre-biased output.
