Efficiently bridging 12V to 48V power supplies

Efficiently bridging 12V to 48V power supplies
The NBM provides bidirectional 48V to 12V conversion with 98% peak efficiency at 750W continuous and 1kW peak power in a package less than 3.3cm3. Switching at 1.7MHz, the NBM takes up a fraction of the space consumed by slow switching (sub 1MHz) solutions requiring a large multiplicity of discrete components. The NBM responds to transient loads quickly (1 microsecond) while maintaining its output within a narrow voltage band.
