Artesyn's PTV03020 is a non-isolated DC-DC converter conforming to the Point of Load Alliance (POLA) standard. The vertical mounting option of the PTV03020 module provides performance in less than 20% of the space required by alternative solutions.
The Auto-Track feature provides for sequencing between multiple modules, a function quickly becoming a necessity for powering advanced silicon including DSPs, FPGAs, and ASICs requiring controlled power-up and power-down.
The PTV03020 has an input voltage of 2.95 VDC to 3.6 VDC and offers a wide 0.8 VDC to 2.5 VDC output voltage range with up to 18 A output current, allowing for maximum design flexibility and a pathway for future upgrades.
