Artesyn Embedded Technologies’ AVO200 series dc-dc converters are aimed at telecom and networking equipment manufacturers. The first two models in the series of 200W fully-regulated 1/8th brick dc-dc converters address 12V and 5V needs of communications installations.

AVO200 series converters accept the telecommunication standard wide input range of 36 to 75 Vdc. The 12V model delivers up to 16.7A output current, while the 5 V model provides up to 40A output. Operating range is -40 to 85C, with open frame or baseplate design, allowing for conduction or forced airflow cooling.

Features include low ripple and noise, fixed switching frequency, high capacitive load capability, pre-bias start-up capability, output voltage remote sense. All variants are fitted with through-hole terminations. The converters are protected against overcurrent, over-temperature and over-voltage conditions. They also have an enable pin on the primary side of the converter and remote-sense features and output voltage adjust function on the secondary side. The industry-standard eighth-brick outline measures 58.4 x 22.9 x 9.6 mm for open frame and 58.4 x 22.9 x 12.7 mm for baseplate.
