DC/DC converter takes all-digital form

Carlsbad, Calif. – Emerson Network Power bills its Astec DTX as the industry’s first all-digital DC/DC (isolated) converter. The first offering as part of the company’s Digital Power Initiative, the DTX42K48, with a footprint approximately the size of an industry-standard eighth brick and just 5 mm high, delivers up to 50 watts at 0.96 to 1.44 volts from a 36-75 volt input for OEM designers seeking the performance and flexibility of an all-digital approach (control, monitoring, and power conversion circuitry).
