Point-of-load power converters for rugged applications in harsh environments introduced by Crane Interpoint

REDMOND, Wash., 25 July 2010. Crane Interpoint in Redmond, Wash., is introducing the MFP Series of rugged point-of-load POL converters for applications in harsh environments. These power electronics devices produce stable power in temperatures from -70 to 150 degrees Celsius. The MFP Series delivers low noise performance, requiring no external capacitors. Four preset output voltages of 0.8, 1.6, 2.5, and 3.3 can be configured with no trim resistors required. Trim resistors can be used to achieve voltages over the range of 0.8 to 3.4 volts.

REDMOND, Wash., 25 July 2010. Crane Interpoint in Redmond, Wash., is introducing the MFP Series of rugged point-of-load POL converters for applications in harsh environments. These power electronics devices produce stable power in temperatures from -70 to 150 degrees Celsius. The MFP Series delivers low noise performance, requiring no external capacitors.

Four preset output voltages of 0.8, 1.6, 2.5, and 3.3 can be configured with no trim resistors required. Trim resistors can be used to achieve voltages over the range of 0.8 to 3.4 volts.

The MFP Series converters have input synchronization from 300 to 600 kHz to sync to the system or other MFPs, output current monitor, output remote sense, output short circuit protection, and input inrush current limiting. With an input voltage range of 3.0 to 6.0 volts, the converters can handle up to a 15 volt transient for a second in addition to full input over-voltage protection.

The converters support input voltages as low as three volts with no external supply. The MFP Series converters will be available to the general market in the range of screening options. For more information, download the technical preview at www.interpoint.com.
