BOHEMIA, N.Y., 10 Nov. 2007.North Atlantic Industries is offering the 55LQ2 high-power-density, low profile, single card slot, CompactPCIDC-DC converter that provides as much as 100 Watts of output power at full load over its operating temperature range of -55 to 85 degrees Celsius.

It operates from an input of 16 to 36 volts DC and provides quad outputs of 5, 3.3, and 12/15 volts DC, as well as -12/-15 volts DC. The 55LQ2 plugs into a standard CompactPCI backplane. With its low noise output and rugged design, the 55LQ2 is for military and aerospace programs, including airborne, shipboard, and ground applications.

The 55LQ2 is designed and manufactured to NAVSO P3641 component derating guidelines and each unit receives ESS screening, including burn-in and temperature cycling. The unit is designed to meet the EMI/RFI requirements of MIL-STD-461E and the Input Transient requirements of MIL-STD-704, when installed within the system.

The efficiency of the 55LQ2 is 75 percent minimum. Noise and ripple is 50 mV p-p and output load transient recovery is 0.5 milliseconds. The unit includes remote error sensing and numerous fault protection features, including continuous short circuit protection (with automatic recovery), output current limiting, and output overvoltage protection.
