Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2009
Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced its latest line of high density, non-isolated board-mount power converters for space sensitive applications. LGA C Series power converters offer users a cost-effective, surface-mount power solution capable of delivering 15-100W of scalable power via a low profile land grid array package.
LGA C Series power converters are packaged in a 16.26 x 16.26 mm outline and utilize an identical footprint for all models (3A, 6A, 10A and 20A) to provide designers with a convenient power migration path if system requirements change. Input voltage ratings range from 3.0 to 13.8 VDC (4.5V to 13.8 VDC for the 20A model), making the power converters compatible with a variety of input bus voltages. The power converters also feature a wide adjustable output range from 0.59 to 5.1 VDC through external resistor trimming, reducing the number of module types needed to support multiple applications.
The converters' ultra-compact Land Grid Array (LGA) packaging enables a uniform, low profile (3.2mm typical) form factor, making them ideal for power applications where board space, airflow and height dimensions are critical. The power converters can be mounted on either side of many circuit boards for flexible space management and are fully-compatible with automated circuit board assembly processes. The packaging's design also offers designers an opportunity to employ a variety of conductive cooling techniques (heatsinks, coldplates, etc) via either surface.
LGA C Series power converters are certified RoHS compliant, offer high efficiency (92 percent typical at full load) under standard operating conditions and accommodate a wide range (-40 to +85 ºC) of ambient operating temperatures. The power converters are also fully equipped with a variety of best-in-class features - including under-voltage lockout, differential remote sense, output margining and short-circuit protection - to ensure high power reliability at a competitive price point.
LGA C Series power conversion modules are currently available, with a standard lead time of stock to eight weeks, and are priced starting at $5.40US per unit in OEM quantities. For additional information, visit http://www.PowerConversion.com/LGA
