MIL-STD 704 Converter Trims Size And Weight

For airborne, naval, and land-based apps, the MBCM270F450M270A00 non-regulated, MIL-COTS BCM bus converter employs proprietary Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC) technology to deliver 45V of isolated power to a rail at more than 96% efficiency. This translates into a power density more than 800W/in.3 in a component with a 0.25” profile weighing 0.5 oz. According to the company, systems using the MBCM-series have a 60% smaller footprint, 3% higher efficiency, and enable powertrain systems 66% lighter than previous best-in-class offerings.
