Bel Power has announced the launch of the SLIN series of non-isolated, point-of-load (PoL) DC/DC converters.

The converters are the latest addition to the company’s range of parts targeting distributed power architectures and intermediate bus voltage applications.

Under the terms of a licensing agreement with Lineage Power, Bel’s SLIN series features Tunable Loop technology, which allows engineers to optimise the dynamic response of the converter to match customers’ specific load requirements.

This is said to minimise the quantity, type and size of the capacitors needed for any given application.

Packaged in a standard Distributed-Power Open Standards Alliance footprint, and available in 3A, 6A, 12A and 20A versions, the SMT modules offer OEMs/ODMs flexibility and efficiency without compromising development schedules.

The SLIN series is engineered to operate over a wide input voltage range of 4.5V to 14V and provide a precise output voltage of 0.59V to 5.5V, programmable via an external resistor.

The series moreover consists of modules, which operate at efficiencies of up to 94.3 per cent.

Parts are RoHS EU Directive 2002/95/EC compliant and carry a full set of international safety approvals, including UL and UL60950.

The cost-effective, compact, open-frame construction of the SLIN series is said to make these converters ideally suited for an array of high-current microchip designs requiring dense inter-board spacing.

Parts are used in a variety of applications, ranging from standalone operation to an integrated component of sophisticated power architecture.

They are most commonly specified for use on PC boards in telecommunications equipment, server and storage applications, and enterprise networks.

The power modules’ features include tight 10-millivolt load voltage regulation, fixed frequency synchronous rectification control, remote on/off, adjustable output voltage, over-current and over-temperature protection, output voltage sequencing, and paralleling with active current sharing.

In addition, they provide a power-good signal and current sink/source capabilities.

Parts operate over an ambient temperature of -40C to +85C.
