DC/DC Converter
The PQ60018QPA60 PowerQor™ Peta Quarter-brick
converter is a next-generation, board-mountable, isolated,
fixed switching frequency DC/DC converter that uses
synchronous rectification to achieve extremely high
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. The Peta series offers industry leading
output currents for any standard quarter-brick module. RoHS
Compliant see last page.

(2.03 mm) diameter standoff shoulders.
2) Pins 4-5, 9-10 are 0.062” (1.57 mm) diameter with 0.100”
(2.54 mm) diameter standoff shoulders.
3) Other pin extension lengths available. Recommended pin length is 0.03” (0.76mm) greater than the PCB thickness.
4) All Pins: Material - Copper Alloy
Finish - Tin/Lead over Nickel plate
5) Undimensioned components are shown for visual reference
only.
6) All dimensions in inches (mm)
Tolerances: x.xx +/-0.02 in. (x.x +/-0.5mm)
x.xxx +/-0.010 in. (x.xx +/-0.25mm)
7) Weight: 1.5 oz. (42 g) typical
8) Workmanship: Meets or exceeds IPC-A-610C Class II
9) UL/TUV standards require a clearance greater than 0.04”
(1.02mm) between input and output for Basic insulation. This issue
should be considered if any copper traces are on the top side of
the user’s board. Note that the ferrite cores are considered part of
the input/primary circuit.
10) The flanged pins are designed to permit surface mount
soldering (avoiding the wave soldering process) through
the use of the flanged pin-in-paste technique.

BASIC OPERATION AND FEATURES
CONTROL FEATURES
The PowerQor series converter uses a two-stage power conversion topology. The first stage is a buck-converter that keeps the
output voltage constant over variations in line, load, and temperature. The second stage uses a transformer to provide the functions
of input/output isolation and voltage step-down to achieve the
low output voltage required.
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.
Both the first stage and the second stage switch 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 half-brick, quarter-brick and eighthbrick converters uses the industry standard footprint and pin-out
configuration.
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 8 and 6): The SENSE(+) inputs
correct for voltage drops along the conductors that connect the
converter’s output pins to the load.
Pin 8 should be connected to Vout(+) and Pin 6 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 8 and 6 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 lower than its specified value.
Note: the output over-voltage protection circuit senses the voltage
across the output (pins 9 and 5) to determine when it should trigger,
not the voltage across the converter’s sense leads (pins 8 and 6). Therefore, the resistive drop on the board should be small enough
so that output OVP does not trigger, even during load transients.

OUTPUT VOLTAGE TRIM (Pin 7): 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 7 and Pin 6 (SENSE(-) input). For a desired decrease
of the nominal output voltage, the value of the resistor should be
Rtrim-down =
- 10.22 (kW)
(511

D% =
Vnominal – Vdesired
Vnominal
x 100%
To increase the output voltage, the user should connect a resistor
between Pin 7 and Pin 8 (SENSE(+) input). For a desired increase
of the nominal output voltage, the value of the resistor should be
Rtrim-up =
(
5.11VOUT(100+D%) _ 511 _

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.

Trim Resistance (kOhms)
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.

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 TurnOff Voltage Threshold value before the converter will turn off.
Output Current Limit: The maximum current limit remains
constant as the output voltage drops. However, once the impedance of the short across the output is small enough to make the
output voltage drop below the specified Output DC Current-Limit
Shutdown Voltage, the converter turns off.
The converter then enters a “hiccup mode” where it repeatedly
turns on and off at a 5 Hz (nominal) frequency with a 5% duty
cycle until the short circuit condition is removed. This prevents
excessive heating of the converter or the load board.
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.

circuit to engage, particularly during transients.

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
Characteristics” on the SynQor website.
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 web site (www.synqor.
com) which provides an understanding of why this instability
arises, and shows the preferred solution for correcting it.
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. When an output short is present, this
generates a 5Hz “hiccup mode,” which prevents the converter
from overheating. In all, there are seven ways that the converter
can be shut down, initiating a Startup Inhibit Period:
Application Circuits: Figure D below provides a typical circuit
diagram which details the input filtering and voltage trimming.
• Input Under-Voltage Lockout
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

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.
