High Performance 120W DC-DC Converters for Harsh Environments

High Performance 120W DC-DC Converters for Harsh Environments

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the 12V, 24V and 28V output HQA DC-DC converters, with additional output voltage models to be added in the coming months.  Packaged in a ruggedized quarter brick form factor, the encapsulated HQA120 models can deliver 120W output power and will operate over a 9V to 40V input range (50V for 1 second).   These 89% efficient converters are suitable for use in COTS, communications and industrial equipment.

The HQA120 has been qualified using methods consistent with MIL-STD-883 & 202, and offers a two screening and operating temperature options.  The M-Grade has functional testing in cold, hot and room ambient temperatures, and an extended 96 hour burn-in with ten-cycle temperature testing.  The S-Grade has functional testing at room ambient temperature and a standard burn-in period.  The full load operating temperature for the M-Grade is -55 to +115°C and -40 to +115°C for the S-Grade.

Two baseplate mounting versions are available.  All models are fully regulated, have a constant switching frequency for easier system EMC integration and utilise no opto-couplers in the control loop for increased reliability.   Full auto-recovery protection is provided and the output can be adjusted ±10% or turned on or off remotely.

Safety certification includes IEC/EN 60950-1, UL/CSA 60950-1 with CE marking for the Low Voltage and RoHS2 Directives.  Input to output and input to baseplate isolation is 2250Vdc.
