Power-One Inc. (Camarillo, CA) announced the third series of products in its Y Series of Nex non-isolated, point-of-load (POL), dc-dc converters. The 20 A YNC products provide a high power density of up to 500 W/in³ (29 A/in³). The YNC products are available in two versions optimized for nominal 5 V and 12 V intermediate bus architecture (IBA) bus voltages. The maXyz IBA compatible products are designed and manufactured by di/dt, a Power-One company.
The Nex family combines industry-standard footprints and trim equations with enhanced features and improved electrical and thermal performance. The YNC converters have dimensions of 1.3 in x 0.53 in x 0.314 in (33 mm x 13.5 mm x 8 mm). The SMD products provide programmable outputs from 0.75 Vdc to 5.5 Vdc, facilitating the use of one part number for multiple applications.
In quantities of 1,000 pieces, the YNC products are priced at $16. Samples and production are available now. The converters are shipped in tape-and-reel packing to facilitate automatic handling and pick-and-place assembly.
