FDK Intros Mini POL Converters
Mini power converters.
San Jose, CA and Tokyo, Japan — FDK Corporation has extended its DK Series with three new non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) DC-DC converters that operate from a 3.0 to 5.5VDC input bus.

These very small, low-profile surface mount devices deliver up to 3, 4, and 6A of output current with efficiencies up to 94 percent. They provide a tightly regulated programmable output voltage in the range of 0.8 to 3.465VDC and deliver the full rated output current with no derating in ambient temperatures up to 85°C with natural convection.

The 3A model FPDK05SR8003PSV, 4A model FPDK05SR8004PSV, and 6A model FPDK05SR8006PSV are offered in a 0.657 x 0.402-in. (16.7 x 10.2mm) SMD package. Occupying a footprint of less than 0.3-in.2 (2cm2), they provide significant space savings over discrete on-board solutions at a competitive price. Their low height of 0.134-in. (3.4mm), for the 3A and 4A converters, and 0.173-in. (4.4mm), for the 6A converter, makes them particularly suitable for high density racks, blade systems, and low profile consumer applications with limited board-to-board and board-to-case clearances.

The DK Series converters provide complete power conversion solutions without the need for external input and output capacitors. They are true single-input converters in that they do not require an external Vcc (bias) supply for operation. They have programmable output voltage, remote ON/OFF, over-current and over-temperature protection, a power good signal, and start up into a pre-biased output. They fit a wide range of telecommunications, data communications, computing, industrial, and consumer applications where board space, cost, profile, efficiency, and reliable operation in elevated temperature environments are critical.
