DC/DC converters boasting 90% efficiencyPower conversion specialists Ideal Power are now offering a wide range of DC/DC converters from Glary Power Technology. Glary are renowned worldwide for producing extremely reliable power converters that. These innovative DC/DC converters exceed 90% efficiency, are thermally efficient and have an impressive power density to size ratio.

They are available in industry-standard encapsulated and “brick” form factors ranging from 40W to 2KW and are ready to be fully customised to meet individual project requirements. Patented Buck Reset Forward Technology exclusive to Glary, improves synchronous rectification (SR) operation by reducing the amount of components required.

Achieved through a technique which improves the efficiency of rectification by replacing diodes with actively controlled switches, usually power MOSFETs or power BJTs, this innovative and unique topology design reduces heat generation, improves thermal efficiency through equal heat distribution and allows an incredible amount of power to be available.

Reducing the footprint required by the power supply on a PCB provides a major benefit for system hardware design as other system and application critical components can reclaim the saved space.

When a new design is commissioned or a modification to an existing product is required, the UK based IP Support Engineering Team at Ideal Power work together with Glary Technology. Ideal Power becomes a technical partner to a customer’s in-house design engineers to match the exact application power requirements.
