Murata Power Solutions is using Powervation’s PV3012 digital controller in its a new DC/DC module. The OKLF-T/25-W12N-C is a non-isolated, DC/DC converter delivering a maximum of 25 A at an output of 1.2 V, when operating up to 70°C with a 200 LFM airflow. The adjustable outputs provide precision regulation from 0.69 V to 3.63 V over a wide input range (6.5 V to 14 V). The new modules are for powering the latest FPGAs and ASICs used in networking, telecom, and computing applications.
Murata Power Solutions’ OKLF 25 A module, is the first device in a new series and has been designed as a complete power solution capable of delivering ultra-fast load transient response, exceptional de-rating performance, and >90% typical efficiency in a high power density form-factor. The module is a complete, stand-alone power supply; with the use of the PV3012 digital control IC, it provides a full-line of protection features and precision set-point accuracy.
According to Bill Smith, Director of Marketing, Board Mount Power, for Murata Power Solutions: “Our OKLF 25 A module extends the ease of design-in of POL converters. With the Powervation controller, our module delivers precision set-point accuracy of ±0.5% over line, load, and temperature range – far better than analogue options. Additionally, this new offering adds value by the use of space saving elevated inductors and Powervation’s Auto-Control, while also achieving exceptional de-rating performance.”
Powervation’s Auto-Control is an intelligent auto-tuning technology. The patented adaptive compensation technology optimises dynamic performance and system stability in real-time without requiring any noise injection or the drawbacks of periodic techniques – a key benefit for modules and other designs that drive unknown or variable output loads, and addresses the challenges of load parameter drift that occurs over temperature and time.
