TDK-Lambda Announces 2nd Gen DOSA SMT 3A to 20A PoL Converters
No Loop Tuning – Up to 97% Efficient – EPC Pads for Easy Solder Inspection
CA – March 2012– TDK-Lambda Americas, a group company of TDK Corporation, has announced their new family
of non-isolated SMT DC-DC converters that comply with the latest 2nd Generation DOSA standards for Point-of-Load (PoL) Converters.
Key advantages of the new DOSA-2 models include high power densities; no external tuning components (plug & play), low profiles, high
efficiencies, and Edge Plated Castellation (EPC) pads for easy SMT solder joint inspections. These converters are ideal for harsh
telecom/broadcast mast-mounted applications, as well as industrial, test & measurement, and medical equipment.
TDK-Lambda's DOSA-2 product line is comprised of four series with output current/power ratings as follows, iCF: 3A/16.5W, iCG: 6A/33W,
iBF: 12A/66W and the iAF: 20A/110W. All of these operate with a wide input voltage range of 4.5V to 14V and feature adjustable output
voltages from 0.7V to 5.5V with conversion efficiencies up to 97%. These miniature 2nd Generation DOSA modules range in size from
12.2 x 12.2 x 4.45 mm (less than 0.5 square inch) to 33 x 13.46 x 7.75 mm. Optional LGA (Land Grid Array) SMT solder pads are available
instead of the standard EPC pads.
Featuring fully-optimized control loops, all modules provide excellent transient response without external loop-tuning components (as is
the case with some competitive products). Remote On/Off, Remote Sense and Power Good Signal are standard. Units can operate in ambient
temperatures from -40°C up to +115°C and include a 3-year warranty.
These converters operate at a constant switching frequency of 600 kHz, which provides a low noise profile and facilitates easy EMI filtering.
All models are safety certified to UL/CSA60950-1 and VDE CB scheme per IEC/EN60950-1.
These DOSA-2 converters are available now and priced from $6.17 each in reel quantities. For more information, call TDK-Lambda Americas
