ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced a new platform of isolated, regulated DC-DC converter modules based on the company's Converter housed in Package (ChiP) power component platform. Delivering up to 2X the power density of conventional DC-DC converters, Vicor's new ChiP DCMs™ enable power engineers to conserve valuable board space. ChiP DCMs can be utilized for a wide range of applications requiring high power density and thermal management flexibility.
Vicor's ChiP DCM platform spans DC-DC conversion requirements from 12 V to 420 V input and 12 V to 55 V output. Coupled with FPA™ and ZVS regulators, these novel power components enable dense, efficient and scalable source-to-load power system solutions.
Today's announcement features two pre-configured ChiP DCMs. The first is a 4623 (46x23mm) 600 W ChiP DCM, with nominal 290 Vin and 13.8 Vout for applications such as HV Li-Ion battery to 12 V systems. The second is a 3623 (36x23mm) 320 W ChiP DCM with 16-50 Vin range and nominal 28 Vout, optimized for 28 V MIL-COTS systems. ChiP DCMs provide up to 1244 W/in3 power density and 93% efficiency, with parallel array capability of up to eight units.
