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.
