Low Power Converters Added to Sixteenth-brick Series
NetPower Technologies added two low-current families to its high efficiency Sixteenth-brick SRS Series. The 25A Series of sixteenth-bricks output power in the 25W to 60W range, and the 15A Series targets applications requiring power from 15W to 45W. Many customers are using 15A sixteenth bricks to replace traditional 1" × 2" converters, thereby gaining more power at higher efficiency in a smaller space. These two sixteenth brick series share the same features as the 35A Series, with output voltages ranging from 0.8V to 15V. The 3.3V sixteenth-bricks, as an example, provide 91 percent efficiency at both 18A output (25A Series) and 10A output (15A Series).
