Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. Introduces the New Cool Power Technologies 36W Wide Input Range 32nd Brick DC-DC Converter Series

Press release date: Apr 10, 2014

Atkinson, NH – Semiconductor Circuits, Inc. introduces the new Cool Power Technologies 36W wide input range 32nd brick DC-DC converter series. These open frame modules provide 36W of output power @ 12Vdc – ideal for distributed power architecture applications or as a fully regulated intermediate bus converter. These modules are compliant with DOSA 32nd brick footprint and interface standards. It has a wide input voltage range of 18 to 36 or 36 to 75 VDC & provides 1500 VDC input to output isolation. Other modules in the 2:1 series are available – 3.3V @ 8A and 5V @ 6A, or submit a request for a custom output voltage.

The CPZ 2:1 input series 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, 100V/100mS input voltage transient and pre-biased load startup.

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

The modules feature a standard 32nd brick pinout with dimensions of 0.76¡± L x 0.92¡± W (19.3mm x 23.4mm.) It has a maximum height of 0.35" (8.9mm) which accommodates tight card spacing with minimal airflow blockage of downstream components.
