The transfer of energy from one atom to another through physical contact is generally termed as conduction. Conduction based power supplies remove the need to depend upon fans for cooling. These devices utilise external metal structures, which act as a large heat sink surface for dissipation of internal energy. In some power supplies, liquid cooled plates are made up of serpentine channels through which liquid circulates for removing the unwanted heat. The conduction process is generally classified into three categories: Ionic Conduction, Electric Conduction and Heat Conduction.

Components Bureau are pleased to announce the new BDQ1300 1,300W quarter-brick DC-DC converter from Artesyn Embedded Power. The new BDQ1300 is designed to provide the highest efficiency (over 97%) on-board 12V output with optional digital control. It can accept an input voltage range of 40 ~ 60 V, making it ideal for data centre and communications network equipment. “The BDQ1300 has been designed to primarily support two power conversion architectures”, according to the company Technical Marketing Director, Andy Brown, he also quotes “Either the conventional and widely used ‘two-stage’ conversion architecture network, where the BDQ1300 only provides power to non-isolated, 12V input point-of-load converters such as Artesyn’s LGA80D or LGA50D families; or the module can also be used to support a hybrid conversion architecture. This is where some of the application’s power is converted with 48 V to low-voltage ‘direct conversion’ products”
