Aimtec Intros Programmable POL DC-DC Converters
POL converter.
Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec, Canada — New from Aimtec, are two series of non-isolated point-of-load converters that meet 5V and 12V input bus requirements.

The AMPL-UZ 10A and AMPL-UZ 16A series POL converters are said to provide exceptional performance in a compact 1.3 x 0.53 x 0.27-in. (33 x 13.46 x 6.7mm) industry standard SMD footprint, allowing for significant real estate savings and close-to-load placement to reduce power losses and improve transient response. With programmable low output ranges of 0.75V to 5V, all models are feature-rich with no minimum load operation, remote output sense, over-current and over-temperature protection, remote On/Off control and standard trim equations.

Targeted to meet the demands of Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA) applications, the AMPL-UZ 10A and AMPL-UZ 16A provide a high efficiency rate of up to 97 percent, with advanced thermal properties to ensure flawless operation within a temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

The versatile POL converters are well suited to meet a wide variety of technical configurations, including low-voltage applications where more current is required (with inputs of 5 or 12V), critical voltage requirements (with up to 9 preset output voltages) and nonstandard output voltage conditions (with use of an external resistor).
