85W DC/DC converters are fully regulated

The new AVD85 family from Artesyn Embedded Technologies is made up of 85W, 1/16th brick DC/DC converters.

The fully regulated modules offer strong thermal performance, high power density of 72.5W/in2 and a peak efficiency of 92%.

Optimised for high density applications with restricted space, the converters also offer an adjustable output voltage range with a 36 to 75Vdc input range.

Artesyn says they yield an almost flat derating curve to 85°C ambient temperature under forced airflow conditions.

The 3.3 and 12V modules are the first voltage variants available as standard with the 5V variant to follow. Standard product options include baseplate and open frame, surface mount or plated through hole with different pin lengths and positive and negative enable options.
