DC-DC Converters

New micro dc-dc converters in the 48-Vdc input family include a 50-W Model at 3.3 V and 75-W Models at 12, 15, 24, 28, and 48 V.

They target powersystem applications in distributed power, medical, communications, defense, and aerospace areas. The converters incorporate the patented low-noise Zero-Current and Zero-Voltage Switching (ZCS/ZVS) technology that reduces filtering costs in power converters meeting agency emissions requirements. Units come in five different environmental grades, with six different pin options, and three base-plate options. They can be configured in any combination on the online Custom Module Design System at vicorpower.com.
