The FIAM072 accepts an input voltage of 43-110 Vdc and the FIAM110 accepts an input voltage of 66-154 Vdc. Both provide up to 500W of output power, with efficiencies up to 98%, and remote on/off control. The FIAM110 and FIAM072 modules are in the industry-standard ‘half-brick’ footprint measuring 2.28 x 2.2 x 0.5 inches, which is ideal for space constrained designs, and are compatible with the Mini, Micro and Maxi or VI/VE-200 and VI/VE-J00 DC-DC converters from Vicor's brick product portfolio.
The FIAM110 and FIAM72 are priced at $71.00 for OEM quantities and are available now.
