FDK America's digital Tomodachi series of non-isolated DC-DC converters delivers exceptional electrical and thermal performance in DOSA-based footprints for Point-of-Load converters. Operating from a 3.0 VDC to 14.4 VDC input, these are the converters of choice for Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA) and Distributed Power Architecture applications that require high-efficiency, tight-regulation, and high-reliability in elevated temperature environments with low airflow. The PMBus interface supports a range of commands to both control and monitor the module. The module also includes the Tunable Loop™ feature that allows the user to optimize the dynamic response of the converter to match the load with reduced amount of output capacitance, leading to savings on cost and PWB area.
The FGSD12SR6003*A converter of the digital Tomodachi series delivers 3 A of output current at a tightly regulated programmable and PMBus control output voltage of 0.45 VDCc to 5.5 VDC. The thermal performance of the FGSD12SR6003*A is best-in-class. Little derating is needed up to 85°C under natural convection.
