1kW from a quarter brick
- Release on:2017-12-04
Called BMR480, is has the industry standard 58.4 x 36.8 x 12.19mm format and operates from 40 to 60V and outputs 10.4, 12 or 12.5V (+/-2.5%), or can be factory configured anywhere from 9V to 13.2V.
“BMR480 module employs ‘hybrid regulated ratio’ technology, which enables better utilisation of the powertrain to deliver high-power conversion across its wide input voltage range,” said Flex. In addition, for applications that operate in high ambient temperatures with limited airflow, the module offers power conversion of up to 97% efficiency – at 53V and half load.”
Key features include dynamic load compensation and support for PMBus v1.3 communication specification and the Ericsson Power Designer software tool.
It has droop load sharing capability, 1.5kV input/output isolation, monotonic start-up, remote control, and protection for over-temperature, output-short-circuit and output-over-voltage.
It is aimed at intermediate bus conversion, dynamic bus voltage and distributed power architectures, as well as high-power applications powered by multi-cell batteries or rectifiers in ICT (information and communication technology). Other market sectors include networking, telecommunications, industrial, server and data storage.
The module comes with a standard base plate, and can be connected to a heatsink or cold plate.
