Sales FAQs



How do I stay informed about new product releases ?
SynQor has a dedicated space on our website highlighting all press releases, which details new product announcements and company news.

Where can I find a list of your channel partners?
Please see our list of contacts by geography.

Can I buy SynQor's products directly from SynQor?
Many customers prefer to work directly with SynQor. SynQor's automated and flexible domestic factory achieves lead times and smaller MOQs than is typical in the industry allowing many customers to work directly with us by way of our manufacturers representatives or SynQor's Order Acquisition group at 1-978-849-0600 or via power@synqor.com. Customers with less predictable demand and those buyers seeking evaluation or prototype quantities may prefer to purchase products through a distribution channel. Please refer to our list of channel partners or contact a SynQor sales person for more information.

What information do I need to specify the correct DC-DC converter?
Product recommendations can be provided more quickly and accurately if you are able to provide the following information at the time of your inquiry:

  • Required input voltage (Vdc)
  • Required output voltage (Vdc)
  • Required load current (Adc) or total output power (Watts)
  • Expected operating temperature range (degrees C)
  • Expected air flow adjacent to the converter (linear feet/minute)
  • Preferred package size, enable logic and pin length
  • Any specific performance requirements

Please provide an explanation of your part numbering system.
SynQor's part numbering system is explained here.

How do I obtain evaluation samples of your products?
SynQor's goal is to make our products readily available and easy to evaluate for qualification purposes. To that end, we offer our customers evaluation boards that allow easy testing of any module with simple connections to your test equipment. You can contact SynQor or one of our channel partners to purchase sample units and evaluation boards.

Does SynQor have minimum order quantities based on packaging requirements?
SynQor has the flexibility to ship any quantities of units. However, ordering in quantities that fill a shipping container will likely reduce shipping cost. Our product shipping container sizes are defined below:

  • PowerQor, InQor, BusQor, CFQor, RailQor, DualQor iQor, NiQor, PFCQor and MCOTS are covered by the following guidelines:
    • Full Bricks: (8th Character in part number = "F"): 15 units per tray
    • Half Bricks: (8th Character in part number = "H"): 25 units per tray
    • Quarter Bricks: (8th Character in part number = "Q"): 35 units per tray
    • Eighth Bricks: (8th Character in part number = "E"): 50 units per tray
    • Sixteenth Bricks: (8th Character in part number = "S"): 56 units per tray
    • (NiQor) SIPS: (Part Number starts with "NQ", 8th letter "V" or "H"): 40 units per tray
    • (NiQor) SMT: (Part Number starts with "NQ", 8th letter "S"): 40 units per tray or 320 units per reel

Sample and prototype quantities less than these amounts may be shipped in our standard single piece box packaging. Other products are individually packaged and thus order quantity has less effect on unit shipping cost.

What are the current lead-times on your products?
SynQor maintains consistent lead times of stock to 14 weeks. Generally, non-MilQor products have a lead-time of 6 to 8 weeks, MilQor products up to 14 weeks.

Please contact SynQor for updated availability on items from stock or check directly with our channel partners for inventory stock status.

How do I determine pricing on your products?

Many of SynQor's channel partners provide online inventory status and pricing information on their websites. Please check our channel partner list for more information.

Do you make custom power supply products?
SynQor offers a broad line of standard DC-DC converters to cover a wide range of power requirements and applications. However, customers often have special requirements that are not covered with a standard product. This may include a specific package size, input/output voltage, power level or a special feature. SynQor will consider all requests for modified and custom power supplies. In addition, SynQor will consider providing system level products as well. To discuss your individual requirements, contact the SynQor sales group.
