Barracuda™ Series DC-DC Converters

Digitally-controlled, fully-regulated bus converters for DC-DC intermediate bus architectures

Image of GE Critical Power's Barracuda™ Series DC-DC ConvertersGE's Barracuda™ series of DC-DC converters are a new generation of DC-DC power modules designed to support intermediate bus applications where multiple low voltages are subsequently generated using Point-of-Load (POL) converters, as well as other applications requiring a tightly-regulated output voltage. With an input voltage range of 36 VDC to 75 VDC in a DOSA-standard quarter brick, the converter incorporates digital control, synchronous rectification technology, and a fully-regulated control topology. This leads to lower power dissipations, so for many applications a heat-sink is not required.


  • Wide input voltage range: 36 VDC - 75 VDC
  • Low output ripple and noise
  • Constant switching frequency
  • Positive remote On/Off logic
  • Output over-current/voltage protection
  • Over-temperature protection
  • Tightly-regulated output voltage
  • Wide operating temperature range (-40°C to 85°C)
  • Industry-standard quarter brick: 58.4 mm x 36.8 mm x 11.7 mm


  • Distributed power architectures
  • Intermediate bus voltage applications
  • Servers and storage applications
  • Networking equipment including Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Fan assemblies other systems requiring a tightly regulated output voltage
