The Next Generation of Bricks Launches Today

The Next Generation of Bricks Launches Today

The brick DC-DC converter is a form-factor that has become incredibly popular with power system designers since we introduced the industry’s first full-brick in 1984. They are reliable, robust and easy-to-use, with an integrated baseplate that significantly simplifies cooling, no requirement to mount on a PCB and integrated peripheral components. Continual innovation has improved the internal electronics, enabling increases in performance within the same footprint.
