BCM®
Bus Converter Module

BCM.jpg

Description

A Sine Amplitude Converter that offers superior performance, the highest efficiency, and highest power density in the smallest package available. BCMs provide an isolated intermediate bus voltage to power
non-isolated PoL (Point-of-Load) converters or serve as an isolated voltage source for ATE, server, telecom, and industrial control applications.
