Vicor announces a new, lower cost option for its high performance line of 2nd Generation DC-DC converter modules and VIPAC Arrays – E-Grade versions.
These DC-DC converter modules use advanced power processing, control, and packaging technologies to provide high power density, flexibility and reliability, along with cost effectiveness achieved through high volume manufacturing. High frequency ZCS/ZVS switching provides high power density with low noise and high efficiency. Targeted applications for these products include off-line systems with autoranging or PFC front-ends, industrial and process control, distributed power, medical, ATE, communications, defense, and aerospace.

E-grade modules and power systems are priced approximately 15% below C-grade versions, allowing more power designers to reap the benefits of designing with high performance, high density dc-dc converters. These products are available in four different input ranges (24, 48, 300 and 375V), seven different output voltages (2-48V), and three package sizes (quarter, half, and full brick). Different baseplate and pin options are also available. Efficiency ranges from 80-90% depending on output voltage, operating temperature range is -10 to 100ºC and storage temperature range is -20 to 125ºC.

Pricing for E-Grade modules is as low as $0.29/Watt in quantities of 1000, and they are available in standard leadtimes.

Vicor’s comprehensive line of power solutions includes modular,
high-density AC-DC and DC-DC modules and accessory components, fully configurable AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies, and complete custom power systems.
