Murata Unveils 600 W DC-DC Converter Module for Wireless Infrastructure Applications

Murata has announced a new product for growing telecommunications and networking equipment needs. The MPQ600 was designed to enable hardware engineers the flexibility to meet demanding RFPA (Radio Frequency Power Amplifier) system design goals. The solution features a Vin range of 36 – 75 Vdc, a Vout range of 14 V – 35 V, and offers 96.5 percent efficiency. It was developed specifically for powering wireless infrastructure equipment such as RFPA, 5G base stations, wireless repeaters, distributed antenna systems, industrial (robotics, transportation, digital signage, communications), infrastructure point-to-point radios, networking equipment, public safety wireless equipment, and test and measurement equipment.

Additional features include remote on/off control, remote sense and trim functions, input under voltage, over-current, over-temperature, and short circuit protection. Additionally, the MPQ600 module features a PMBus interface that can be used to monitor input and output voltages, output current, and device temperature. The PMBus also allows users to configure many operational parameters, including output voltage, current limit, Vout ramp rate, Vout delay, soft start/stop, and optimization of the modules for stable operation under a wide range of conditions.

The solution was designed, tested, and qualified according to the industry standard IPC9592 design for reliability requirements. Electrical performance is state-of-the-art, with an efficiency rating of 96.5+ percent typical at full load, pre-bias protection under all conditions, and tight line and load regulation. The MPQ600 has low output ripple and noise and fast load transient response, all packaged in an industry-standard quarter brick package measuring just 58.4 x 36.8 x 14.4 mm (2.3 x 1.45 x 0.57 in). All I/O-isolated MPS modules are designed to comply with IEC/EN/UL 62368-1 safety standards.

“Murata Power Solutions is proud to offer the MPQ600-28V21-D48NBMC modules to power system architects around the world. We employ a highly rigorous reliability design and manufacturing process and an advanced digital control platform with Murata’s proprietary firmware, providing the power system designer with the tools for the next generation of high-performance systems,” said Bill Smith, Sr. Product Manager, Murata Power Solutions.
