Why Engineers Need a Non-Isolated Bus Converter (NBM)

Why Engineers Need a Non-Isolated Bus Converter (NBM)

Bus converters are highly popular, flexible power components that traditionally provide an isolated intermediate bus voltage to power PoL (Point-of-Load) converters or serve as an isolated voltage source. They are widely used in applications such as ATE, server, telecom, and industrial control. Last week we announced a different type of bus converter – a non-isolated fixed ratio bus converter module (NBM) based on our ChiP package: the first bus converters that do not offer isolation. So why did we create this new category of power components? There are several advantages in removing the isolation:...

What’s the Opposite of Derating?

Engineers are very familiar with the concept of derating: under certain circumstances, such as elevated temperatures, devices are unable to deliver their full performance. Data sheets or application notes provide the information to derate the device
