FDK America, Inc.
2270 N. First St.
San Jose, CA, 95134

Press release date: October 26, 2009

For high density and low profile racks, blade systems, and consumer applications

San Jose, CA and Tokyo, Japan - October 26, 2009 - FDK Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange 2nd Section: Code 6955) a global electronic component and battery manufacturer, extends its DK Series of non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) dc-dc converters with the addition of a new product in a low profile single in line (SIP) package. The FPDK12TR8006PSV converter delivers up to 6 Amperes (A) of output current at a power density exceeding 950 Watts/cubic inch. It has an efficiency of up to 93% and provides a complete power conversion solution without the need for external input and output capacitors. Like other products in the DK Series, this converter is designed for a wide 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 0.220 in. (10.0 x 5.6mm) SIP package, with a height of 0.472 in. (12.0 mm). Occupying a footprint of less than 0.1 in2 (0.6cm2), this converter provides considerable space savings over discrete on-board solutions. 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 FPDK12TR8006PSV converter operates from a 5.6Vdc to 14.0Vdc input and provides a tightly regulated programmable output voltage in the range of 0.8Vdc to 6.6Vdc. 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 3.3Vdc, this 6A converter delivers the full rated output current with no derating up to 65 degrees Celsius with 400LFM (2m/s) airflow. It features programmable output voltage, remote ON/OFF, over-current and over-temperature protection, and start up into a pre-biased output.

"This addition to the DK Series provides another attractive and cost-effective power solution from FDK for systems designers facing increasingly tighter constraints on both board space and available height," said Dr. Apurba Roy, executive advisor, FDK Corporation. "FDK will continue to leverage its power conversion expertise to expand this important product line."

All DK Series products are RoHS compliant. They are manufactured using FDK's state-of-the-art in-house manufacturing processes and systems in Japan. In quantities of 1,000 pieces, the FPDK12TR8006PSV converters are priced at $5.70. Lead time is 8 weeks. Samples are available now.
