Vicor has rolled out four additional DC-DC converters deployed in the rugged, chassis-mountable versions of its DCM family. According to the company, the products extend the line-up by adding a couple of 270V and two 28V nominal products to provide the highest densities in a smaller footprint than similar devices in the market.

The recently unveiled products are aimed at industrial and process control markets, distributed power, ATE, communications, defence/aerospace, semiconductor manufacturing equipment (SME) and transportation.

The DCM in a VIA package is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated and regulated output. The device flaunts an input voltage up to 420V and delivers up to 500W. With its high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter claims to consistently deliver high efficiency across the input line range.

The DCM provides tight output voltage regulation and offers a secondary-referenced control interface for trim, enable and remote sense operation. DCM converters and downstream DC-DC products support efficient power distribution, providing superior power system performance and connectivity from a variety of unregulated power sources to the point of load.
