DC-DC Converter
The PowerQor® Eighth-brick converter series is composed
of next-generation, board-mountable, isolated, fixed
switching frequency dc-dc converters that use synchronous
rectification to achieve extremely high power conversion
efficiency. The power dissipated by the converter is so low
that a heatsink is not required, which saves cost, weight,
height, and application effort. All of the power and control
components are mounted to the multi-layer PCB substrate
with high-yield surface mount technology. Since the
PowerQor converter has no explicit thermal interfaces, it is
extremely reliable. RoHS Compliant (see page 15).

Note 1: The UVLO values represented here are typical of lighter load conditions. The unit may shut down under high load conditions before the typical
UVLO limits.
Note 2: For applications requiring reduced output voltage ripple and noise, consult SynQor applications support (e-mail: [email protected])
Note 3: The module requires a minimum amount of capacitance (100μF) in order to ride through a No Load to Full Load transient (0.1A/μs) without
shutdown.
Note 4: Higher values of isolation capacitance can be added external to the module.

BASIC OPERATION AND FEATURES
The single stage power converter switches at a fixed
frequency for predictable EMI performance. Rectification of
the transformer’s output is accomplished with synchronous
rectifiers. These devices, which are MOSFETs with a very low
on-state resistance, dissipate far less energy than Schottky
diodes. This is the primary reason that the PowerQor
converter has such high efficiency, even at very low output
voltages and very high output currents.
Dissipation throughout the converter is so low that it does
not require a heatsink for operation. Since a heatsink is not
required, the PowerQor converter does not need a metal
baseplate or potting material to help conduct the dissipated
energy to the heatsink. The PowerQor converter can thus be
built more simply and reliably using high yield surface mount
techniques on a PCB substrate.
The PowerQor series of eighth-brick, quarter-brick and halfbrick converters uses the industry standard footprint and
pin-out configuration.
CONTROL FEATURES
REMOTE ON/OFF (Pin 2): The ON/OFF input, Pin 2, permits
the user to control when the converter is on or off. This input is
referenced to the return terminal of the input bus, Vin(-). There
are two versions of the converter that differ by the sense of the
logic used for the ON/OFF input.
In the positive logic version, the ON/OFF input is active high
(meaning that a high turns the converter on). In the negative
logic version, the ON/OFF signal is active low (meaning that a
low turns the converter on). Figure A details five possible circuits
for driving the ON/OFF pin. Figure B is a detailed look of the
internal ON/OFF circuitry.
REMOTE SENSE(+) (Pins 7 and 5): The SENSE(+) inputs
correct for voltage drops along the conductors that connect the
converter’s output pins to the load.
Pin 7 should be connected to Vout(+) and Pin 5 should be
connected to Vout(-) at the point on the board where regulation
is desired. A remote connection at the load can adjust for a
voltage drop only as large as that specified in this datasheet,
that is
[Vout(+) - Vout(-)] – [Vsense(+) - Vsense(-)] <
Sense Range % x Vout
Pins 7 and 5 must be connected for proper regulation of
the output voltage. If these connections are not made, the
converter will deliver an output voltage that is slightly higher
than its specified value.
Note: the output over-voltage protection circuit senses the
voltage across the output (pins 8 and 4) to determine when
it should trigger, not the voltage across the converter’s sense
leads (pins 7 and 5). Therefore, the resistive drop on the board
should be small enough so that output OVP does not trigger,
even during load transients.

Technical Specification
OUTPUT VOLTAGE TRIM (Pin 6): The TRIM input permits the
user to adjust the output voltage across the sense leads up or
down according to the trim range specifications.
To decrease the output voltage, the user should connect a
resistor between Pin 6 and Pin 5 (SENSE(-) input). For a desired
decrease of the nominal output voltage, the value of the resistor
should be
Rtrim-down =
( 511
∆%)
- 10.22 (kW)
where
∆% =
Vnominal – Vdesired
Vnominal
x 100%
To increase the output voltage, the user should connect a
resistor between Pin 6 and Pin 7 (SENSE(+) input). For a desired
increase of the nominal output voltage, the value of the resistor
should be
Rtrim-up =
(
5.11VOUT(100+∆%) _ 511 _
10.22
1.225∆%
∆%
)
(kW)
where
VOUT = Nominal Output Voltage
Figure C graphs the relationship between the trim resistor value
and Rtrim-up and Rtrim-down, showing the total range the
output voltage can be trimmed up or down.
Note: the TRIM feature does not affect the voltage at which the
output over-voltage protection circuit is triggered. Trimming the
output voltage too high may cause the over-voltage protection
circuit to engage, particularly during transients.
It is not necessary for the user to add capacitance at the Trim
pin. The node is internally bypassed to eliminate noise.

Total DC Variation of Vout: For the converter to meet its
full specifications, the maximum variation of the DC value of
Vout, due to both trimming and remote load voltage drops,
should not be greater than that specified for the output
voltage trim range.
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 Limit: Once the output current reaches the
current-limit point, the converter is in the cycle-by-cycle current
limit mode for a short time that the typical value is 210µs. If the
over current no longer exists during this short time, the converter
resumes the normal condition. If the over current still persists
after this short time, the converter enters a “hiccup mode” where
it repeatedly turns on and off at a 5 Hz (nominal) frequency until
the over current condition is removed. The dual advantages of
this design are that a short term overload will not cause a hiccup
mode restart and it prevents excessive heating of the converter
or the load board in extended over current condition.
Output Over-Voltage Limit: If the voltage across the output
pins exceeds the Output Over-Voltage Protection threshold, the
converter will immediately stop switching. This prevents damage
to the load circuit due to 1) excessive series resistance in output
current path from converter output pins to sense point, 2) a
release of a short-circuit condition, or 3) a release of a current
limit condition. Load capacitance determines exactly how high
the output voltage will rise in response to these conditions. After
200 ms the converter will automatically restart.
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 System Instability: This condition can occur because
any DC/DC converter appears incrementally as a negative
resistance load. A detailed application note titled “Input System
Instability” is available on the SynQor website which provides
an understanding of why this instability arises, and shows the
preferred solution for correcting it.
Application Circuits: Figure D below provides a typical circuit
diagram which details the input filtering and voltage trimming.
Input Filtering and External Capacitance: Figure E below
provides a diagram showing the internal input filter components.
This filter dramatically reduces input terminal ripple current,
which otherwise could exceed the rating of an external
input electrolytic capacitor. The recommended external input
capacitance is specified in the “Input Characteristics” section.
More detailed information is available in the application note
titled “EMI Characteristics” on the SynQor website.
Startup Inhibit Period: The Startup Inhibit Period ensures
that the converter will remain off for approximately 200ms
when it is shut down for any reason. In all, there are five ways
that the converter can be shut down, initiating a Startup Inhibit
Period:
• Input Under-Voltage Lockout
• Output Over-Voltage Protection
• Over Temperature Shutdown
• Current Limit
• Turned off by the ON/OFF input

Figure F shows three turn-on scenarios, where a Startup Inhibit
Period is initiated at t0, t1, and t2:
At time t1, the unit is disabled by the ON/OFF pin, and it cannot
be enabled again until the Startup Inhibit Period has elapsed.
Before time t0, when the input voltage is below the UVL threshold,
the unit is disabled by the Input Under-Voltage Lockout feature.
When the input voltage rises above the UVL threshold, the
Input Under-Voltage Lockout is released, and a Startup Inhibit
Period is initiated. At the end of this delay, the ON/OFF pin is
evaluated, and since it is active, the unit turns on.
When the ON/OFF pin goes high after t2, the Startup Inhibit
Period has elapsed, and the output turns on within the typical
Turn-On Time.
