Ideal Power launches high-efficiency DC/DC converters in sixteenth-brick form factor

Peterborough, UK – 22nd November 2018

Ideal Power, experts in power conversion, today announced the launch of the STB0xxxyyy-S-P-B50 series DC/DC converter modules from PowerGood. The new converters offer high efficiency and performance in the industry-standard sixteenth-brick form factor.

The ‘STB’ series modules are based around isolated, PCB mount, fixed switching frequency DC/DC converters, which use synchronous rectification to achieve extremely high-power conversion efficiency of 91% at 5V.

The modules offer a 2:1 / 4:1 ultra-wide input range (9-36 / 18-75 / 18-36 / 36-75), with input-to-output isolation of 2250V DC. They provide an output voltage trim range of -10%, +10%, and customisable output power of up to 60W. A fixed switching frequency provides consistent EMI, and the modules are RoHS-compliant.

Jon Vallis, Sales and Marketing Manager at Ideal Power, said, “PowerGood’s converter modules use advanced power processing, control and packaging technologies, resulting in premium performance, flexibility and reliability needed by critical applications that require minimal power losses.”

The new converter modules are provided in a robust metal case, making them suitable for the harsh environments seen in many industrial and agriculture vehicle applications. They have an industry-standard, DOSA-compliant pin out, and are compact in size, measuring 38mm x 37mm x 13mm (1.49” x 1.46” x 0.5”).

Operating temperature range is -40ºC to +70ºC, without derating, and reliability is improved because the modules do not include a constrained life-span capacitor, enabling them to achieve a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 1.6 million hours.

The new converter modules are ideally-suited to a wide range of applications, including telecoms, industrial control, data communications, wireless networking and railway systems.

Established in 1989, PowerGood started out as a design house, and now manufactures DC/DC converters for customers around the world; featuring products which are used in applications including military, railway transportation, industrial automation, medical care, and new energy.
