CHiP DCMs generate an isolated DC output

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. 

Modular DCM converters and downstream DC/DC products support efficient power distribution, providing power system performance and connectivity from a variety of unregulated power sources to the point-of-load.

Announced today:

(Items in green are new/others were previously announced).

Aimed at a variety of applications, including UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls, Vicor has added four 30V input nominal modules (9-50V range) in a 3623 Chip package (1.52x0.90x0.29"). These converters have output voltages of 5, 24, 28, and 48V, and power levels up to 160W, achieving a power density up to 404W/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 500 W (1.89x0.90x0.29"), achieving a power density of 1,014W/in3.
