Vicor Adds Four New DC-DC Converter ChiP Modules to its DCM Family

Vicor announces the launch of its four new DC-DC converter ChiP modules ideal for defence and industrial applications.

The new entries in the extensive DCM family are available in the 3623(36 x 23mm) ChiP (Converter housed in Package) with an unrivaled power density of 1,032W/in3. The new 80W DCM ChiPs, feature a wide-input voltage range of 9V to 75V and are available with nominal output voltages of 12V, 24V, 28V and 48V.

The DCM ChiP is a DC-DC converter module that provides a proven, faster power system design option than alternate discrete solutions. DCMs operate from an unregulated, wide-range input to generate an isolated, regulated DC output. By utilizing a high frequency, zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, DCMs consistently deliver high efficiency across their entire input voltage range.

The new DCMs are used broadly across defence and industrial applications where tighter output voltage regulation is required. These applications include UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls. The DCM ChiPs are available in M-grade, which can perform at temperatures as low as -55°C.
