Flex Power Modules announces encapsulated sixteenth-brick DC-DC converters for industrial/railway and telecom applications

  • Encapsulated sixteenth-brick package for harsh environments
    9 to 36V and 18 to 75V inputs ideal for industrial/railway and telecom applications
    Output up to 50W, with 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V and 24V outputs available
    High efficiency of up to 91%

    Flex Power Modules introduces the PKU-S series of DC-DC power modules for the industrial/railway and telecom sectors, to provide highly reliable, high performance and rugged DC-DC solutions.

    The modules are housed in the industry-standard sixteenth-brick form factor (35.3 x 25 x 10.4mm / 1.39 x 0.984 x 0.41 in), with sealed and encapsulated packaging. This ensures their reliability when exposed to dust, moisture, severe vibration and other harsh environmental conditions.

    There are two variants: the PKU3500S series has an input voltage range of 9 to 36V, and the PKU5500S operates from 18 to 75V. The converters can deliver up to 15A and 50W of output power and achieve up to 91% efficiency. Input-to-output isolation is 2250VDC.

    The series achieves high levels of reliability, with mean time between failures (MTBF) of up to 8 million hours. The new modules meet safety requirements according to the latest IEC/EN/UL62368-1 standard.

    Olle Hellgren, Director of Product Management and Business Development at Flex Power Modules, said: “Further strengthening our product offering for harsh environments such as those found in the industrial/railway and telecoms sectors, the PKU-S family enables our customers to benefit from the high power density offered by the sixteenth-brick footprint, while also offering the environmental and physical protection of these encapsulated versions”.

    The PKU3000S and PKU5000S families are available now for sampling and volume production requirements.

Cloud Computing for Electronic Design (Are We There Yet?)

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

When your project is at crunch time, a shortage of server capacity can bring your schedule to a crawl. But, the rest of the year, having a bunch of extra servers sitting around idle can be extremely expensive. Cloud-based EDA lets you have exactly the compute resources you need, when you need them. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Craig Johnson of Cadence Design Systems about Cadence’s cloud-based EDA solutions.
