Bel Power: Point-of-Load Power Converters
DC/DC converters.
Westborough, MA — Bel Power, a division of Bel Fuse Inc. (NASDAQ: BELFA & BELFB), has introduced the SLIN Series of non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) DC/DC converters. The new products are added to the company's growing portfolio of parts targeting distributed power architectures and intermediate bus voltage applications. Under the terms of a licensing agreement with Lineage Power Corporation, Bel's new SLIN Series provides Tunable Loop technology, which allows engineers to optimize the dynamic response of the converter to match customers' specific load requirements. This minimizes the quantity, type and size of the capacitors needed for any given application, and offers significant cost and performance advantages over other solutions and technologies.

Packaged in a standard Distributed-power Open Standards Alliance (DOSA) footprint, and available in 3A, 6A, 12A and 20A versions, the SMT modules offer maximum flexibility and efficiency without compromising development schedules. The SLIN Series is engineered to operate over a wide input voltage range of 4.5V to 14V and provide a precise output voltage of 0.59V to 5.5V, programmable via an external resistor. The series consists of modules which operate at efficiencies of up to 94.3 percent. Parts are RoHS-complaint, and carry a full set of international safety approvals including UL and UL60950.

The cost-effective, compact, open-frame construction makes the converters well suited for an array of state-of-the-industry, high-current microchip designs requiring dense inter-board spacing. The converters are most commonly specified for use on PC boards in telecommunications equipment, server and storage applications, and enterprise networks.
