Tyco Unveils SMT POL DC/DC Converters
SMT converter package.
Dallas, TX — Tyco Electronics' Power Systems has introduced its Austin MegaLynx point-of-load (POL) DC/DC converters in SMT packages. Designed to meet the power needs of the latest generation of FPGAs and ASICs, the Austin MegaLynx converter series extends the output current range of the Austin SuperLynx converters up to 30Amps in an efficient SMT package.

The converter series includes four versions. The ATS020 and ATS030 supports an input voltage range of 6 to 14VDC, with a programmable output voltage range of 0.8V to 3.63VDC and 0.8V to 2.75VDC respectively. The ATH version supports an input voltage range of 4.5 to 5.5VDC, with a 0.8 to 3.63VDC output voltage range. The ATM version supports 2.7 to 5.5VDC input with 0.8 to 2.0VDC output range.

According to the company, the Austin MegaLynx converter can reach efficiencies of greater than 92.5 percent at nominal input voltage conditions and rated output current. In addition, standard features include programmable output voltages, remote on/off, remote sense, monotonic start up, EZ-SEQUENCE, over current and over temperature protection. Current share (-P) and base plate (-H) with additional ground pins for improved thermal performance are available as options.

The Austin MegaLynx converter is offered in SMT packaging and RoHS compliant versions are available. It measures 1.30 in x 0.36in x 0.53 in (33.0 mm x 9.1mm x 13.5mm). This robust construction enables the converter to operate under a temperature range of -40°F to +185°F (-40°C to +85°C), while ensuring industry standard handling, cleaning and soldering processes.
