The NiQor SMT DC/DC converter is a non-isolated
buck regulator, which employs synchronous
rectification to achieve extremely high conversion
efficiency. The NiQor family of converters are used
predominately in DPA systems using a front end DC/
DC high power brick (48Vin to low voltage bus).
The non-isolated NiQor converters are then used at
the point of load to create the low voltage outputs
required by the design. The wide trim module can
be programmed to a variety of output voltages
through the use of a single external resistor. RoHS
compliant (see page 12).

BASIC OPERATION AND FEATURES
The NiQor series non-isolated converter uses a buck-converter
that keeps the output voltage constant over variations in
line, load, and temperature. The NiQor modules employ
synchronous rectification for very high efficiency.
For a desired increase of the nominal output voltage, the value
of the resistor should be:
Rtrim=
up
VDES - 0.7525
VOUT = 0.7525 +
The NiQor series of SIPs and SMT converters uses the established
industry standard footprint and pin-out configurations.
REMOTE ON/OFF: The ON/OFF input permits the user to
control when the converter is on or off. There are currently
two options available for the ON/OFF input described in the
table below. Others may become available if demand exists.
10500
_ 1000
(W)
or
Dissipation throughout the converter is so low that it does not
require a heatsink or metal baseplate for operation. The NiQor
converter can thus be built more simply and reliably using high
yield surface mount techniques on a single PCB substrate.

SMT
10500
Rtrim-up + 1000
(W)
where V
DES = Desired Output Voltage
To maintain the accuracy of the output voltage over load
current, it is vital that any trim-up resistor be terminated
directly to the converter’s ground foot, not at the connection
to the load. A separate Kelvin connection to the PCB pad for
the ground foot is optimal. Trim-down resistors should be
terminated at the converter’s Sense+ pin.
We do not recommend bypassing the trim pin directly to
ground with a capacitor. The voltage gain from the trim pin to
output is rather large, 15:1. Ground bounce through a bypass
capacitor could introduce significant noise to the converter’s
control circuit.
OUTPUT VOLTAGE TRIM: The TRIM input permits the user
to adjust the output voltage according to the trim range
specifications by using an external resistor. If the TRIM feature
is not being used, leave the TRIM pin disconnected.
TRIM-UP: To increase the output voltage from the nominal
setpoint of 0.7525V using an external resistor, connect the
resistor Rtrim-up between the TRIM and the Ground pin according
to the diagram below.

PROTECTION FEATURES
Input Under-Voltage Lockout: The converter is designed to
turn off when the input voltage is too low, helping avoid an
input system instability problem, described in more detail in the
application note titled “Input System Instability”. The lockout
circuitry is a comparator with DC hysteresis. When the input
voltage is rising, it must exceed the typical Turn-On Voltage
Threshold value (listed on the specification page) before the
converter will turn on. Once the converter is on, the input
voltage must fall below the typical Turn-Off Voltage Threshold
value before the converter will turn off.
Output Current Limiting: To provide protection in an output
over load fault condition, the unit is equipped with internal
over-current protection. When the over-current protection
is triggered, the unit enters hiccup mode. The units operate
normally once the fault condition is removed.
Internal Over-Voltage Protection: To fully protect from
excessive output voltage, the NQ16 series contains an Output
Over-Voltage Shutdown circuitry.
This OVP is independent of the trimmed setpoint. As such,
the converter’s load is protected from faults in the external
trim circuitry (such as a trim pin shorted to ground). Since the
setpoint of this OVP does not track trim, it is set at 6.0V, in the
wide-trim W50 model.
The shutdown point is fixed on standard option. SKA also
offers adjustable OVP set point. For more detailed information
contact SynQor technical support.

Over-Temperature Shutdown: A temperature sensor on the
converter senses the average temperature of the module. The
thermal shutdown circuit is designed to turn the converter
off when the temperature at the sensed location reaches the
Over-Temperature Shutdown value. It will allow the converter
to turn on again when the temperature of the sensed location
falls by the amount of the Over-Temperature Shutdown Restart
Hysteresis value.
APPLICATION CONSIDERATIONS
Input Filtering/Capacitance/Damping: The filter circuit of
Figure E is often added to the converter’s input to prevent
switching noise from reaching the input voltage bus.
In the SKA10 (surface mount) converters Cin = 30µF of high
quality ceramic capacitors. With Lin of 1µH, Cd should be
100-200µF and Rd should be 0.1-0.2W, in most applications.
For more information on designing the input filter and
choosing proper values, contact SynQor technical support.
Figure F: Converter with Additional Output Capacitance
Thermal Performance (SKA10): While impossible to be exact,
a simplified thermal model for the mounted converter is
detailed below.
Figure E: NQ16 converter with Input Filter
Adding significant external pure ceramic capacitance directly
across the converter’s input pins is not recommended.
Parasitic inductance associated with the input pin geometry
and PCB traces can create a high-Q CLC circuit with any
external capacitors. Just a few nano-Henries of parasitic
inductance can create a resonance (or an overtone) near
the converter’s switching frequency. Cin has a reactance of
10-20mW at the 300kHz switching frequency. To avoid this
high-frequency resonance, any external input filter should
exhibit a net source impedance of at least 20mW resistive
through this frequency range. This requirement is easily met
with the damping elements discussed above. Adding a small
amount (a few µF) of high-frequency external ceramic will
not violate it.
If using converters at higher powers, consider the ripple
current rating of Cd. Contact SynQor technical support for
details.
Output Capacitance: It is recommended to add at least 100µF
of capacitance, with an ESR in the 0.1W range, to the output
of the SKA10 series of converters. The VMA16 series has this
capacitance included internally. In many applications, however, additional external output capacitance is required to
reduce the response to load transients to an allowable level.

PCB to the air stream. It ranges from about 15oC/W at
400LFM to about 25oC/W 100LFM.
• Rt_Pcb-Feet expresses the thermal path from the converter’s
PCB though its mounting feet; it is about 3oC/W.
• Rt_spread models the heat spreading on the PCB to which
the converter is mounted and is largely dependent upon the
construction and layout of that PCB.
• T_mount is the temperature of that PCB in the greater
vicinity of the converter.
As is evident, the values for Rt_spread and T_mount will have
great effect upon the thermal operation of the converter.
With Rt_Pcb-Amb being 5 to 8 times as large as Rt_Pcb-Feet,
in most applications these converters will be predominantly
cooled via thermal conduction through their feet. Airflow
and T_Amb will have only a minimal cooling effect. www.synqor.com

Technical Specification
• Rt_spread should be minimized. Attach the converter to
large copper planes, on multiple layers, with multiple vias
near the mounting feet.
• T_mount should also be minimized. Place the converter far
enough away from other sources of heat on the PCB so that
it is as cool as practical.
• If operation near derating limits is even suspected, thermal
performance should be verified with the unit mounted in its
intended manner and powered in circuit with all neighboring
circuitry active. Attach a thermocouple to the converter’s
hotspot as shown in Figures 4, 6, and 8 in the Performance
Curves section.
SURFACE MOUNT INFORMATION
PCB Layout Considerations: SynQor recommends that the
customer use a non-solder mask defined pad design. The
minimum recommended pad size is 0.074” x 0.122” (1.88mm
x 3.1mm) and the maximum pad size is 0.095” x 0.140”
(2.41mm x 3.56mm), see the mechanical diagram on page
2. Interconnection to internal power planes is typically
required. This can be accomplished by placing a number
of vias between the SMT pad and the relevant plane. The
number and location of the vias should be determined based
on electrical resistance, current and thermal requirements.
“Via-in-pad” design should be avoided in the SMT pads.
Solder mask should be used to eliminate solder wicking into
the vias.

Reflow Soldering Guidelines: Figure J shows a typical reflow
profile for a eutectic solder process. Due to variations in
customer applications, materials and processes, it is not feasible for SynQor to recommend a specific reflow profile. The
customer should use this profile as a guideline only. Since
the NiQor surface mount modules have a larger thermal
mass and lower thermal resistance than standard SMT components, it may be necessary to optimize the solder reflow
profile based on limitations of the other components on the
customer board. Sufficient reflow time must be allowed to
fuse the plating on the connection to ensure a reliable solder joint. The solder reflow profile should be confirmed by
accurately measuring the SMT interconnect leads. Maximum
case temperature of 260°C (exposure for 5 seconds or less) is
not exceeded for the NiQor units.
Moisture Sensitivity: The NiQor surface mount modules
have an MSL rating 1 per IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033A.
Cleaning and Drying: When possible, a no-clean solder paste
system should be used to solder the NiQor SMT units to their
application board. The modules are suitable for aqueous
washing, however, the user must ensure sufficient drying to
remove all water from the converter before powering up.
Inadequate cleaning and drying can affect the reliability of
the converter and the testing of the final assembly.
RoHS Compliance: The EU led RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous
Substances) Directive bans the use of Lead, Cadmium,
Hexavalent Chromium, Mercury, Polybrominated Biphenyls
(PBB), and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) in Electrical
and Electronic Equipment. This SynQor product is 6/6 RoHS
compliant. For more information please refer to SynQor’s
RoHS addendum available at our RoHS Compliance / Lead Free
Initiative web page or e-mail us at [email protected]
Pick and Place: The NiQor surface mount modules are
designed for automated assembly using standard SMT pick
and place equipment. The modules have a centrally located
inductor component with a flat surface area to be used for
component pick-up. The units use open frame construction
and have a low mass that is within the capability of standard
pick and place equipment. Those modules however have
a larger mass than most conventional SMT
components and so variables such as nozzle
Maximum Temperature (+210-260 C)
size, tip style, handling speed, and placement
pressure should be optimized for best results.
A conformal tipped placement nozzle design
Eutectic Solder Melting Point (+183 C)
is recommended. Coplanarity of better than
0.004” (0.1mm) is achieved through the SMT
(+150-155 C)
NiQor’s terminal design.
