Plano, Tex.—Ericsson Power Modules’ latest PKR DC/DC converters, an updated version of the series introduced in November 2004 as a higher-power and more thermal-efficient alternative to the company's PKF MacroDens family, has a new open-frame design to cut cost and improve compatibility with lead-free soldering processes, to which the MacroDens' molded construction is not suited.
The first models in the single- and dual-output family (12 additional models planned for the coming year), for datacom and telecom applications, include the PKR4110B SI (4.5 amps at 3.3 volts from an 18-75 or 36-75 volt input), and the PKR4910A SI (3 amps at 3.3 volts).
