Sanken has developed a non-isolated step-down DC/DC converter converter module, the BR200 series. The new series features a lineup of seven products with an output current of either 10 A or 20 A. Samples of the BR200 series will be available from the end of June.
Mass-produced units are scheduled to be available from July this year. The BR200 series will initially be produced on a scale of 10,000 units/month, to be expanded to 100,000 units/month by April 2014. Samples of the BR200 series will ship at a unit price of JPY 1,800 for 10 A models and JPY 2,700 for 20 A models.
Sanken says the BR200 series offer a fast response to changing loads and a low profile, making them easy to mount and they provide a stable supply of output power to the FPGA, DSP, and MCU components, whose loads fluctuate quickly and sharply.
