Date added: 03 Jun 2015 Black Arrow launches BA-PM60A-V1 - high current digital power module

BA-PM60A-V1 - 60 A Digital Power Module Provides Full-Features & PMBus™ Programmability in 1 Inch2 Design

3 June 2015: Black Arrow LTD (www.blackarrowsoftware.com) today announced that has completed development and manufacture of a cost effective, high power DC/DC power module named BA-PM60A-V1. Currently selling at 1/4 of the price of the closest competitor while providing similar performance and dual power output while maintaining the pin-to-pin compatibility of its competitors.

The BA-PM series products support low-voltage, high-current operation while providing ±0.5% set-point accuracy over line, load, and temperature range and supplies dual voltage (in excess of 60 Amperes for the range 0.5 to 2 Volts and 0.5 Amperes at 5Volts) allowing customers to reduce the BOM, development costs and time considerably. While the PMBus functionality of the module provides real-time telemetry of voltage, current, and temperature and enables full programmability of the DC/DC converter, the BA-PM series products also employ function setting pins, enabling them to be used in non-PMBus applications. The target applications for the BA-PM series include: servers, routers and other Information & Communication Technology (ICT) equipment, T&M and industrial equipment.

altThis module uses intelligent auto-tuning technology, Auto-Control, the BA-PM modules bring better dynamic performance and system stability to the application - autonomously managing circuit and load variations due temperature, component tolerances, ageing and board impedances.”

Auto-Control is the industry’s leading intelligent auto-tuning technology. The patented adaptive compensation technology optimizes dynamic performance and system stability in real-time without requiring any noise injection or the drawbacks of periodic techniques. This is a key benefit for modules and other designs that drive unknown or variable output loads, and addresses the challenges of load parameter drift that occurs over temperature and time.

BA-PM series delivers industry-leading power density with this 60 A solution requiring only one square inch of board space. Optimized system and component design and deployment of the advanced digital control features provided by this module has resulted in higher efficiency & reliability, faster transient performance and precision voltage control over all conditions.”

The BA-PM60A-V1 Series POL module is available now (http://www.blackarrowsoftware.com/store/ba-pm60a-v1.html).
