Vicor develops lower power DC/DC module for high-rel applications
A lower power variant of Vicor’s DCM2322 series has been announced. The family of isolated, regulated DC/DC modules targets power density, low weight and ease-of-use, all of which are critical considerations when designing isolated, regulated DC/DC converter systems for robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), rail, communications and defence or aerospace applications, reports Vicor.
The DCM2322 ChiP is packaged in a ChiP, measuring 22 x 23 x 7.0mm and with input voltage ranging from 43 to 154V, 14 to 72V and 9.0 to 50V. Power levels range from 35 to 120W and efficiencies are up to 90.5 per cent.
Vicor DCMs use high-frequency zero-voltage switching topology to achieve industry-leading thermal and electrical performance with power densities five times greater than competing DC/DC converters, claims Vicor.
Vicor designs, develops, manufactures and markets modular power components and complete power systems based on patented technologies.
The company’s products are sold in the power systems market, including enterprise and high performance computing, industrial equipment and automation, telecommunications and network infrastructure, vehicles and transportation, aerospace and defence sectors.
The company is headquartered in Andover, Massachusetts, USA.
