Industry’s smallest 3A POL DCDC converter from Avnet Abacus saves design iterations

Keeping up with the demands of embedded, industrial and storage applications, the EN5339 enables a 20% solution footprint reduction and a 40% lower profile compared to previous Enpirion 3 Amp products. With a footprint of just 55mm² and a profile of just 1.1mm, the EN5339 is particularly suitable for high-density embedded computer-on-modules which, in particular, require this small area and a low profile to enable under-side PCB mounting. The POL converter is suitable for equipment based on a diverse range of form factors such as Ultra COM Express, PC104, Qseven, ATCA Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMC), Compact PCI and others.

Mark Cieri, Enpirion’s director of marketing and business development commented: “I was told by a hardware engineering manager at a leading European embedded computer maker that his most difficult design challenge was fitting both the processors and discrete DC-DC converters onto the same card.” Enpirion PowerSoCs require fewer design steps with significantly less exposure to design cycle iteration. Fully validated and proven PCB layout and design files are provided enabling customers nearly 100% first-pass reported success.

Additionally EN5339’s low ripple (6mV) and EMI eliminate the need for external noise filters, while its thermal performance and construction negate the need for heatsinks. These two factors combine to reduce component count. Enpirion PowerSoCs achieve 21,800 years MTBF, and the high-efficiency devices are industrial-graded so they do not require load de-rating at 85degC ambient temperature.

Alan Jermyn, VP European Marketing at Avnet Abacus said:  “Enpirion’s leading edge development of Integrated DC/DC switching solutions are one of the reasons design engineers are turning to Avnet Abacus when they are looking to design the power system for their new projects. We offer innovative solutions that help engineers differentiate their products.”
