DC-DC Converter & Input Filter Meet Military SwaP-C Requirements


Vicor has announced new high performance DC-DC converters and input filter designed to meet low size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) requirements in military and aerospace applications.

The DCM VIA converters are ruggedised modular DC-DC converters in a thermally adept, low profile (9.3 mm) VIA package, with wide input voltage range specifications and isolated, regulated high efficiency outputs.

Two new MIL-COTS (M-Grade) versions are available now, with 270V (160 – 420V input voltage range) and nominal output voltages of 24V and 28V with up to 500 Watts of output power.

These new DC-DC converters feature EMI filtering, transient protection, inrush current limiting, as well as a secondary-referenced control interface for trim, enable and remote-sensing.


To complement these high voltage DC-DC converters, the firm has also announced a new MFM 270V filter module (MFM filter). This extremely dense, low profile DC front-end module provides EMI filtering and transient protection when used with any Vicor M-Grade 270V DCM 3714 VIA module.

“This combination enables power engineers to rapidly meet conducted emissions and conducted susceptibility requirements per MIL-STD-461E/F and input transients per MIL-STD-704F”, the firm stated in the announcement.

The MFM DCM Filter accepts an input voltage of 160 – 420VDC (270VIN ) and delivers output power up to 640W. It is offered in a 1714 VIA package (1.76” x 1.40” x 0.36”).
