High current density DC modules suit use as 5G Nodes

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has launched the LGA50D DC-DC module, which boasts one of the highest current density ratings available.

With a footprint of just 1 x 0.5 inches or 25.4 x 12.5mm, this non-isolated unit offers two independent and configurable 25A, 50W outputs, which can also be combined to a single configurable 50A, 100W output.

Design engineers can also generate higher current rated rails by connecting up to 4 units in parallel so that up to 200A can be supplied as a single power rail.

A low-profile variant that is just 6 mm high is said to be ideal for height-constrained applications, such as compact 5G wireless network nodes.

Applications such as graphics, data or video processing, using high power devices, such as server processors, FPGAs, supercomputers, network, storage and telecom equipment, can also benefit from the current density, efficiency and flexibility of control of Artesyn’s LGA50D digital dc-dc converter.

For simple evaluation, configuration and monitoring, Artesyn offers a PC-based graphical software package in conjunction with an evaluation kit. Two intuitive tabs allow developers to enter the required settings for individual converters and monitor the status and parameters.

The demonstration board is fitted with two LGA50D modules allowing design engineers to test independent-channel or stacked-module operation.

The LGA50D series is compatible with the company’s 80A LGA80D series, offering equipment makers scalability with a common fit, form and function at different power and current ranges.
