Eighth-bricks reach 300 watts

Framingham, Mass. – Artesyn says the three new intermediate bus converters (IBCs) in its Typhoon family are the first eighth-bricks in the industry capable of delivering up to 300 watts. These open-frame, single-board DC/DCs, one which delivers an unregulated output and two that provide semi-regulation, are designed to generate a 12-volt intermediate bus voltage for powering multiple downstream (non-isolated) POL converters in distributed power systems.
