Vicor offers GQFN package option for 48V ZVS Buck Regulator portfolio
The PI358x series is the latest addition to the Vicor 48V ZVS Buck Regulator portfolio, offering a GQFN package option to the existing LGA and BGA system-in-package (SiP) line up of products.
The PI358x’s ZVS topology enables 48V direct-to-PoL without any adverse effect on performance. With step-down regulation from a higher voltage source, Vicor says engineers are able to deploy more efficient power distribution architectures, reduce I2R losses, and eliminate costly and inefficient intermediate conversion stages.
Operating from 30VIN to 60VIN, the PI358x regulates an output voltage ranging from 2.2V to 14V and delivers an output current delivery up to 10A. The company states that power delivery can be increased further through use of single wire current sharing without any additional components.
The PI358x series is designed for a range of applications leveraging higher voltage distribution, including telecom, network infrastructure, data centres industrial, battery and lighting applications.
Headquartered in Andover, Massachusetts, Vicor Corporation designs, manufactures and markets high-performance modular power components, to enable customers to efficiently convert and manage power from the power source to the point of load.
