Miniaturised DC-DC Converters Aimed At Multiple Apps


Vicor Corporation has expanded its DCM series of DC-DC converters with seven new devices offered in Package (ChiP) power component platform. The converters are 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. “With its high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter consistently delivers high efficiency across the input line range”, according to the firm.

The new devices include four new 30 V input nominal modules (9 – 50V range) in a 3623 Chip package (1.52 x 0.90 x 0.29 in). These converters have output voltages of 5, 24, 28, and 48V, and power levels up to 160W, achieving a power density up to 404 W/in3.


Also announced is a 28V input nominal module (16 – 50V range) in a 3623 ChiP package with a 3.3V output at 120W, a 375W module with a nominal input voltage of 275V (120 – 420V) and 12V output in a 4623 ChiP package, and a 270V input nominal module (160 – 420V range) in a 4623 ChiP package with a 48V output at 500W (1.89 x 0.90 x 0.29 in), achieving a power density of 1,014 W/in3.
