The DCM in a VIA Package is a ruggedized modular DC-DC converter operating from an unregulated, wide range input, to generate an isolated and regulated high efficiency output with much higher power densities than competitive products. The new DCMs offer power system engineers a better brick with their enhanced functional integration by incorporating EMI filtering, transient protection, inrush current limiting, and a secondary-referenced control interface for trim, enable and remote-sensing. Configurations are available for both on-board mounting and for chassis mounting.
Nominal Input Voltage
Input Voltage Range
Aimed at a variety of applications, including industrial and communications, Vicor has added three new 48V input nominal modules (36-75V range) in a 3414 VIA package (3.38 x 1.40 x 0.37 in). These converters have output voltages of 12, 24, and 48V, with power levels of 320W, achieving a power density up to 183 W/in3.
Power Component Design Methodology
Vicor’s Power Component Design Methodology enables power system designers to reap all of the benefits of modular power component design – predictable component and system functionality and reliability, fast design cycles, and easy system configurability,
re-configurability and scaling – while achieving system operating efficiency, power density and economy that rival the best alternative solutions. Utilizing Vicor’s online tools, power system designers select from an extensive portfolio of proven Vicor power components to architect, optimize and simulate their complete power system, all the way from their input sources to their points of load. This innovative approach to power system design delivers fast time-to-market and state-of-the-art performance while minimizing the possibility of last minute surprises and delays that so often occur with conventional or custom design methodologies.
