Description

The High Voltage BCMs are a family of DC-DC bus converters which operate from a 380 VDC nominal input and deliver an isolated and Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) secondary output. Initial versions of the BCM family in the VIA package are rated at 1.75 kW and provide a 48 V output with integrated filtering and PMBus communication. Future versions will include 12 V and 24 V outputs, additional filtering options, and analog control capabilities. All HV BCMs are available in either a chassis or PCB mount VIA form-factor or the scalable and high density ChiP packaging as well as our classic VI Chips.
