Addressing an industry need for DC/DC converters that perform efficiently at realistic ambient conditions up to 50 C, the Apollo series boasts a distinctive thermal-management strategy and a high-efficiency level of 90.5 percent at 3.3 V. Additionally, the open-frame converters have a 0.411-inch profile and support the tight, 0.6-inch card-pitch telecom requirements. The base-plate versions are ideal for wireless base stations deployed in uncontrolled ambient environments.
