BR200 Series POL Converter Module

The Sanken BR200 series consists of thin-type POL converter modules with an industry-standard exterior shape and footprint. They are responsive to very-high-speed loads and compatible with ceramic capacitors.

These products can be used as design-free POL converters for 5 V or 12 V system intermediate buses. They can be configured easily, reducing overall design time, and allowing reuse of designs. Miniaturization was achieved by high-frequency switching technology, saving space on the application PCB. Soldering capability has been significantly improved by adoption of end-face through holes.

Applications include communication devices, computer servers, and other low-power conversions.
