Power-One Inc. (Camarillo, CA) introduced its new QNT36ZEDB 80 W, quarter-brick, dc-dc converter, which converts a 36 Vdc to 75 Vdc input into three 12 A outputs that adjust from 0.95 V to 5 V. The combination of flexibility, performance and full-isolation facilitates the use of one part for a variety of applications. In selected applications, the converter can also provide a single-component alternative to distributed power architectures.
The QNT36ZEDB is available in through-hole and SMT-mountable packages. It has a low profile of 2.30 in x 1.45 in x 0.38 in (58.4 mm x 36.8 mm x 9.7 mm). Additional features include 1.5 kVdc input-to-output isolation, sequencing of outputs at startup, individual output enable, remote on/off, and operation to 110 °C. Internal protections include over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and over-temperature.
Pricing for the QNT Series is $65 each for 1,000-piece quantities. Evaluation units are usually available from stock. Production quantities are typically available in six to eight weeks.
