Military COTS BCM bus power converter for aerospace and defense applications introduced by Vicor
ANDOVER, Mass., 10 March 2011. Vicor Corp. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the MBCM270F450M270A00 military commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) BCM bus power converter for aircraft, surface ships, submarines, land vehicles, and fixed-site military installations. The device is part of the Vicor (NASDAQ: VICR) V.I Chip power component family. The device operates from a 270-volt DC (230 to 330 volts) MIL-STD-704E/F power rail, and uses the Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC) proprietary topology to deliver isolated power to a nominal 45-volt rail at more than 96 percent efficiency, Vicor officials say.
The 45/48-volt-output MBCM270F450M270A00 and its partner 28/33-volt-output MBCM270F338M235A00 bus converters are available in surface mount technology (SMT), through-hole, and thermally-enhanced VI BRICK package versions. For more information contact Vicor online at www.vicorpower.com.
