200V Input, Single/Dual Output
The HTA Series of DC-DC converters is a family of 20W,
single and dual output, high reliability devices designed to
operate in extremely high temperature environments such as
those encountered in oil exploration applications. Features
include small size, low weight and high tolerance to
environmental stresses such as wide temperature extremes,
severe shock and vibration. All internal components are
derated to meet the intended operating environment.
Documentation including electrical stress and thermal analysis
The converters incorporate a fixed frequency single forward
topology with magnetic feedback and internal EMI filter. All
models include an external inhibit port and have an adjustable
output voltage. They are enclosed in a hermetic 3.805" x 1.5"
x 0.430" AlSi package and weigh less than 70grams. The
package utilizes rugged ceramic feed-thru copper core pins
and is sealed using parallel seam welding.
Full environmental screening includes temperature cycling,
constant acceleration, fine and gross leak, and burn-in. Non-
screened versions of the HTA converters are available for
system development purposes. Variations in electrical
specifications and screening to meet custom requirements
can be accommodated.
The HTA series of converters utilize a single-ended forward
topology with resonant reset. The nominal switching frequency
is 500KHz. Electrical isolation and tight output regulation are
achieved through the use of a magnetically coupled feedback.
Output current is limited under any load fault condition to
approximately 125% of rated load at maximum operating case
temperature. An overload condition causes the converter
output to behave like a constant current source with the output
voltage dropping below nominal. The converter will resume
normal operation when the load current is reduced below the
current limit point. This protects the converter from both
overload and short circuit conditions.

An external Inhibit port is provided to control converter
operation. The converter’s operation is inhibited when
this pin is pulled low. It is designed to be driven by an
open collector logic device. The pin may be left open
for normal operation and has a nominal open circuit
voltage of 4.0V with respect to the Input Return (pin 2).
The output voltage of all models can be adjusted using
a single external resistor.
The current limit point exhibits a slightly negative temperature
coefficient to reduce the possibility of thermal runaway.
