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). The product is aimed at a variety of applications, including UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls.
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.
This new converter has an output voltage of 15V maximum power of 160W, achieving a power density of 404 W/in3.
Simultaneously, the firm has also announced 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.
Leveraging high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter modules claim to consistently deliver high efficiency across the input line range. Modular DCM converters and downstream DC-DC products support efficient power distribution, providing superior power system performance and connectivity from a variety of unregulated power sources to the point-of-load, as stated in the announcement.
