When designing power distribution systems in applications where large amounts of power are needed – such as in telecommunications or datacenters – it’s important to use highly efficient modular DC-DC converter solutions which maximize efficiency and minimize running costs. This handy guide details Vicor’s substantial family of DCMs and explains how to use them effectively, covering design requirements, operation of the modules (including parallel operation) and how to improve output voltage/current regulation. Other factors covered in detail include thermal management, PCB layout considerations and soldering considerations.

  • Extensive family of high-performance DCMs in a ChiP package
  • Minimal power distribution system design costs
  • Ideal for military, industrial and commercial applications
