Artesyn's PTH12050 is a next generation series of non-isolated DC-DC converters that offer some of the most advanced POL features available in the industry. The primary new feature provides for sequencing between multiple modules. This type of functionality is becoming a necessity for powering advanced silicon, including DSPs, FPGAs, and ASICs that require controlled power-up and power-down.
Another industry leading feature is the up to 93% efficiencies of these converters. The PTH12050 has an input voltage of 10.8 VDC to 13.2 VDC and offers a wide output voltage range adjustable with an external trim resistor. This allows for maximum design flexibility and a pathway for future upgrades.
