160/375W DC/DC converters in IC-style packaging

February 17, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Vicor has added two items to its range of DCM DC/DC converters in the company's s ChiP integrated-circuit-style package.

Aimed at a variety of applications, including UAV, ground vehicle, radar, transportation and industrial controls, the first added device is a 30V input nominal module (9 – 50V range) in a 3623 ChiP package (1.52 x 0.90 x 0.29 in). This converter has an output voltage of 15V maximum power of 160W, achieving a power density of 404 W/in ³. Also announced is a 375W module with a nominal input voltage of 275V (120 – 420V) and 24V output in a 4623 ChiP package (1.89 x 0.90 x 0.29 in), achieving a power density of 775 W/in ³.


The DCM in a ChiP package is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated DC output. With its high frequency zero-voltage switching (ZVS) topology, the DCM converter delivers high efficiency across the input line range. Modular DCM converters and downstream DC-DC products support efficient power distribution, providing power system performance and connectivity from a variety of unregulated power sources to the point-of-load.
