ANDOVER, Mass., 9 Sept. 2010. Vicor Corp. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the MIL-COTS VI BRICK Filter power electronics device -- a 95-percent-efficient non-isolated regulator to boost and buck input voltage from 16.5 to 50 volts DC, and deliver output power as high as 120 Watts -- for military vehicles, aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, military communications, targeting systems, flat-panel displays, electronic warfare RF jamming, and GPS mobile tracking applications.
The device measures 2.19 by 1.91 by 0.37 inches, and meets mil specs such as MIL-STD-1275A/B/D and MIL-STD-704A-F for transients and MIL-STD-461E/F for electromagnetic interference (EMI).
The stand-alone MIL-COTS VI Brick Filter is a separate DC front-end module that provides EMI filtering and transient protection. The filter enables designers using Vicor's MIL-COTS VI BRICK and V-I Chip PRMs to meet conducted emission / conducted susceptibility per MIL-STD-461E/F and input transients per MIL-STD-704A/E/F and MIL-STD-1275A/B/D.
The MIL-COTS VI BRICK Filter is designed to provide a controlled factorized bus distribution voltage for powering downstream VI BRICK VTM current multipliers that are fast, efficient, isolated, low-noise point-of-load (POL) converters. In combination, VI BRICK PRMs and VTMs form a DC-DC converter subsystem. for more information contact Vicor online at www.vicorpower.com.
