DC-DC Converter

Tue, 02/13/2001 - 9:48am
Vicor has introduced a new power conversion architecture — called PowerStick™— specifically designed to address the market for low profile, high density, board mounted DC-DC converters. Featuring an above-board height of 0.35 and a footprint as small as 2.28L × 0.5W, PowerStick converters deliver up to 75 Watts per module and up to 900 Watts in fault tolerant arrays.

Vicor's through-the-board mounting results in an effective power conversion density of 188W/in3. A wraparound aluminum body, available in a variety of options, provides integral cooling in a broad range of applications and thermal environments, allowing customers to achieve peak power density within the 0.35 low profile.

All members of the PowerStick family maintain the complete feature set of Vicor 2nd Generation converters. And, because PowerSticks are environmentally sealed and encased in aluminum, they offer superior ruggedness, reliability, electrical shielding and noise performance.

The initial 48V input family of PowerStick DC-DC converters addresses a broad range of communications, data processing, test equipment and industrial applications. The initial 48Vin product offering will provide predefined outputs of 1.5, 1.8, 2.0, 2.5, 3.3, 5.0, and 12 Vdc.
