Seven new mid-power Micro dc-dc converters were added to Vicor's high-density 24Vin input family: 50W models at 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 24, 28, and 48Vout. The modules, which incorporate Vicor's low-noise zero-current and zero-voltage switching (ZCS/ZVS), are appropriate for power-system applications in industrial and process control, distributed power, medical, ATE, communications, defence, and aerospace.
These new modules double the size of the high-power-density 24Vin Micro family, which previously consisted of 75W at 3.3Vout and 100W at 5, 12, 15, 24, 28, and 48Vout. The converters operate from 24V nominal input, with an input range of 18V to 36V. Furthermore, they will operate down to 16V after startup. Efficiencies range up to 89% for the higher output voltages.
The RoHS-compliant (with F or G pin option) modules measure 57.9 by 36.8 by 12.7mm, with a height above board of 10.9mm.
