No description available.
This reference design is an application circuit of the APXW012A0X3-SRZ 9-36V ProLynx DC-DC converter, a power module that can deliver up to 12A of output current. This module operates over a wide range of input voltage ranging from 9V to 36V and provides a regulated output voltage from 3V to 18V, which is programmable via an external resistor.
This power module can be used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from simple standalone operation to an integrated part of sophisticated power architecture. It has features like the ability to externally tune the voltage control loop and a variable current limit inversely dependent on output voltage. The Tunable LoopTM, allows the user to optimize the dynamic response of the converter to match the load with reduced amount of output capacitance leading to savings on cost and PWB area and AutoLimit enables the module to deliver the maximum possible output power across the entire voltage range. Other features include remote On/Off, adjustable output voltage, over current, over temperature protection and sync capability.
This product is good for applications like industrial equipment, distributed power architectures, telecommunications equipment, and intermediate bus voltage applications. The 9-36V ProLynx can also be used for negative output voltage loads through the use of a specific application schematic discussed on its datasheet.
