1.3kW quarter brick with digital control

Components Bureau has announced that it is stocking the new BDQ1300 1,300W quarter-brick DC-DC converter from Artesyn Embedded Power.

The BDQ1300 has been designed to provide the highest efficiency (over 97%) on-board 12V output with optional digital control. It can accept an input voltage range of 40 ~ 60 V, making it ideal for data centre and communications network equipment.

The four-pin (length 4.6mm) PMBus header provides standard PMBus control and is responsible for monitoring functions such as voltage, current monitoring, start-up, shutdown control, protection feature warning, shutdown limits, temperature monitoring and revision-control information. To achieve the maximum conversion performance with minimum control complexity you can choose the BDQ1300 without the four pin PMBus connection.

It has an operating temperature range from -40°C ~ 85C with air cooling and offers options for base plate cooling.

The quarter brick is EN/UL/IEC/CE/TUV safety approved and ROHS 3.0 (2011/65/EU) compliant.
