Communications Applications No Longer Need Isolated Bus Converters

Communications Applications No Longer Need Isolated Bus Converters

Communications infrastructure equipment has traditionally used lead-acid batteries as a backup supply, which requires the batteries to power a positive referenced 48 V distribution system to avoid corrosion (cathodic protection). As this -48 V supply is used to power +48 V electronics, isolation between the batteries and the communication electronics is required. So the use of isolated bus converters became standard practice in these applications. With modern communications systems merging with server technology, and the communication portion moving from electrical to optical systems, today’s equipment can use negative referenced+48 V backup, meaning isolation is...

White Paper Describes How Eliminating Isolation Improves Performance of 48 V Power Systems

The telecommunications industry has traditionally used positive-referenced DC power distribution to reduce the chance of copper wiring corroding. Modern systems, however, often use active cathodic protection, eliminating the need for a positive-referenced power system.

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:...
