Vicor introduces seven new DCMs in a ChiP package

19 JANUARY 2017

V336-4623_3623DCMsThe 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 superior 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 four new 30V input nominal modules (9-50V range) in a 3623 Chip package (1.52 × 0.90 × 0.29 in).  These converters have output voltages of 5, 24, 28, and 48 V, and power levels up to 160 W, achieving a power density up to 404 W/in3.  Also announced is a 28 V input nominal module (16-50V range) in a 3623 ChiP package with a 3.3V output at 120 W, a 375 W 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 500 W (1.89 × 0.90 × 0.29 in), achieving a power density of 1,014 W/in3.
