DC:DC Converters

Ideal Power are now offering a wide range of DC/DC converters from Glary Power Technology, one of the leading innovators of small footprint board mounted power conversion. Glary are renowned worldwide for producing extremely reliable power converters that exceed 90% efficiency, are thermally efficient and have an impressive power density to size ratio. These innovative DC/DC converters 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.

Established in 1998, Glary have proved to be a reliable source for electronic design engineers seeking uncompromising PCB mounted power solutions. Glary offer a unique combination of industry-leading design, immense reliability and superior technical knowledge. The Glary business model is built on patents pushing the boundaries of technology by exceeding expectations for the design and manufacture of DC/DC converters.

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.

Glary’s Continuous improvement of designs to produce market-leading products provides an impressive feature-rich product with fewer components on system board, faster transient response, lower ripple and lower RFI noise, no Tantalum capacitors are used increasing reliability, high power density in a small form factor, along with extremely low heat generation and power loss. Single-sided component layout allows for easy mounting on the base-plate, Sink-Plate options eliminate the need for extra heat-sinks, vertical or horizontal heat-sink fins may be specified to increase compatibility with system air-flow and smooth and precise edges of the base plate allow for compact assembly.

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 become a technical partner to the customer’s in-house design engineers to match the exact application power requirements. The IP Support team has over 40 years of experience in the power supply industry and provides local assistance throughout the whole design process from concept, design, quotations, samples and testing to approvals and standards compliance, shipping, stock-holding and after-sales service.
