Vicor Introduces Two New DCM DC-DC Converters in High-density ChiP Packaging
New DC-DC converters feature zero voltage switching (ZVS) topology
Vicor has announced the expansion of its DCM series of DC-DC converters utilizing the Converter housed in Package™ (ChiP) power component format. The DCM in a ChiP package is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated DC output. With its high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter consistently delivers high efficiency across the input line range. Modular DCM converters and downstream DC-DC products support efficient power distribution, providing power system performance and connectivity from a variety of unregulated power sources to the point-of-load.
Aimed at a variety of applications, including UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls, Vicor has added a new 30V input nominal module (9 – 50V range) in a 3623 ChiP package (1.52 x 0.90 x 0.29 in). This converter has an output voltage of 15 V maximum power of 160W, achieving a power density of 404 W/in3. Also announced is a 375W module with a nominal input voltage of 275V (120 – 420V) and 24V output in a 4623 ChiP package (1.89 x 0.90 x 0.29 in), achieving a power density of 775 W/in3.
