Murata Power Solutions announced a new product for growing telecommunications and networking equipment needs. The MPQ600 was designed to enable hardware engineers the flexibility to meet demanding radio frequency power amplifier (RFPA) system design goals. The solution features a Vin range of 36 to 75 Vdc, a Vout range of 14  to 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 PMBusTM interface that can be used to monitor input and output voltages, output current and device temperature. The PMBusTM 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 and comply with IEC/EN/UL 62368-1 safety standards.

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