Vicor Introduces New DCMs in VIA Package for Industrial and Communications

The DCM in a VIA Package is a ruggedized modular DC-DC converter that operates from an unregulated, wide range input, to generate an isolated and regulated high efficiency output, with much higher power densities than competitive products. Announced on February 7, 2017, the new DCMs offer power system engineers a better BRICK with their enhanced functionality of 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.
Nominal Input Voltage VIA Package Input Voltage Range Output Voltage
5V 12V 15V 24V 28V 48V
300V 3714 200-420V 400W 600W 500W 500W
270V 3714 160-420V 500W 500W
28V 3414 16-50V 180W 320W 320W 320W 320W
48V 3414 36-75V 320W 320W 320W 320W

(Items in green are new, others were previously announced).

Aimed at a variety of applications, including industrial and communications, Vicor has added two new models:  a 48V input nominal module (36-75V range) in a 3414 VIA package (3.38 x 1.40 x 0.37 in) with a 28V/320W output and a 300 input nominal module (200-420 range) in a 3714 VIA package (3.75 x 1.40 x 0.37 in) with a 28V/500W output, achieving a power density up to 257 W/in3.
