ANDOVER, Mass. – Power electronics specialist Vicor Corp. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the DCM2322 ChiP family of isolated, regulated DC-DC converters for military and transportation applications like unmanned vehicles, communications, and rail.
The DCM2322 operates from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated output. With its high frequency zero voltage switching (ZVS) topology, DCMs consistently deliver high efficiency across their specified input line range.
Modern rail infrastructure requires a wide range of DC-DC converters to power a variety of safety systems and passenger services, as well as creating a need for performance improvements in existing systems for both freight and commuter markets.
The power electronics device is a lower-power and smaller package variant of the DCM3623 family and provides power system engineers a smaller size.
Packaged in a 22-by-23-by 7-millimeter ChiP, the power electronics series offers engineers wide input voltage ranges of 43 to 154 volts and two more narrow input voltage ranges of 14 to 72 volts and 9 to 50 volts, with power levels ranging from 35 to 120 Watts and efficiencies to 90.5 percent.
The DCMs user the Vicor high-frequency zero-voltage switching topology for thermal and electrical performance, with power densities five times greater than competing DC-DC converters.
