Vicor introduces seven new DCMs in a ChiP package

November 30, 2016


DCMSummary: The DCM in a ChiP package is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter, operating
from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated DC output. With its high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter consistently delivers high efficiency
across the input line range. Modular DCM converters and downstream DC-DC products support
efficient power distribution, providing superior power system performance and connectivity from
a variety of unregulated power sources to the point-of-load.

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

Aimed at a variety of applications, including UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls, Vicor has added four new 30 V input nominal modules (9 – 50V range) in a 3623 Chip package (1.52 x 0.90 x 0.29 in). These converters have output voltages of
5, 24, 28, and 48V, and power levels up to 160W, achieving a power density up to 404 W/in3. Also announced is a 28V input nominal module (16 – 50V range) in a 3623 ChiP package with a 3.3V output at 120W, a 375W module with a nominal input voltage of 275V
(120 – 420V) and 12V output in a 4623 ChiP package, and a 270V input nominal module (160 – 420V range) in a 4623 ChiP package with a 48V output at 500W (1.89 x 0.90 x 0.29 in), achieving a power density of 1,014 W/in3.
