Artesyn Adds New Models to High-Efficiency 300W Eighth-brick Converter Series for Telecom and Computing Applications

Posted January 15, 2018

Artesyn Embedded Technologies today announced two new models in its ADO300 series 300W eighth-brick converters, providing single 3.3 V or 5 V outputs.

The ADO300 is a new generation digitally-controlled dc-dc converter with standard eighth-brick outline and pin configuration. It can handle an input range of 36 to 75 V, delivers up to 60 A output current at 3.3 V or up to 60 A output current at 5 V output voltage.

The ADO300 converter series features an outstanding 95.2% ultra-high full load efficiency with excellent thermal performance. It has an enhanced pre-bias start-up capability and for high current applications two converters can be connected in parallel, automatically using droop current sharing.

Ideally suited to telecom, computing and server applications, the ADO300 series is available with baseplate or open frame options. High efficiency and superior thermal performance enables operation between -40 degrees Celsius and 85 degrees Celsius with air cooling - now demanded by telecom network and data center equipment manufacturers.

The new converters provide flexible and comprehensive digital communication via the PMBus® command protocol with control and monitoring functions for voltage, current, temperature and the reporting of fault conditions. They are ideal as isolated converters supplying power to downstream digital dc-dc converters such as Artesyn’s LGA80D series or analog point-of-load converters.
