Vicor introduces three new DCMs in a VIA Package

December 13, 2016


DCMSummary: The DCM in a VIA Package is a ruggedized modular DC-DC converter operating
from an unregulated, wide range input, to generate an isolated and regulated high efficiency
output with much higher power densities than competitive products. The new DCMs offer
power system engineers a better brick with their enhanced functional integration by incorporating
EMI filtering, transient protection, inrush current limiting, and a secondary-referenced control
interface for trim, enable and remote-sensing. Configurations are available for both on-board
mounting and for chassis mounting.


Announced today:

Voltage Range
Output Voltage
5V 12V 15V 24V 28V 48V
300V 3714 200 – 420V   400W   600W   500W
270V 3714 160 – 420V   500W     500W  
28V 3414 16 – 50V 180W 320W 320W 320W 320W  
48V 3414 36 – 75V   320W   320W   320W

Table 1 – Vicor's DCM Family – Items in green are newly released, others were previously announced.

Aimed at a variety of applications, including Industrial and Communications, Vicor has added three new 48V input nominal modules
(36 – 75V range) in a 3414 VIA package (3.38 x 1.40 x 0.37 in). These converters have output voltages of 12, 24, and 48V, with power levels of 320W, achieving a power density up to 183 W/in3.

Power Component Design Methodology
Vicor’s Power Component Design Methodology enables power system designers to reap all of the benefits of modular power component design – predictable component and system functionality and reliability, fast design cycles, and easy system configurability, re-configurability and scaling – while achieving system operating efficiency, power density and economy that rival the best alternative solutions. Utilizing Vicor’s online tools, power system designers select from an extensive portfolio of proven Vicor power components to architect, optimize and simulate their complete power system, all the way from their input sources to their points of load. This innovative approach to power system design delivers fast time-to-market and state-of-the-art performance while minimizing the possibility of last minute surprises and delays that so often occur with conventional or custom design methodologies.
