Vicor Expands Family of 300V Input Mini Modules

Andover, MA, March 22 , 2007... The Brick Business Unit of Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR), leading the power industry in parts availability and customization with very short lead times, today announced the addition of nine mid-power Mini DC-DC converters to the 300 Vdc input family: a 100 W model at 2 and 3.3 Vout, 150 W models at 5, 12, 15, 24, 28, 36, and 48 Vout. The modules - which incorporate Vicor's patented low-noise Zero-Current and Zero-Voltage Switching (ZCS/ZVS) -can be used in a variety of applications, including off-line systems with auto-ranging front ends, industrial and process control, distributed power, medical, ATE, communications, defense, and aerospace. Low-noise ZCS/ZVS greatly reduces the design effort and filtering costs required for power converters to meet agency conducted emissions requirements.

With these new entries, the 300 Vin Mini family now comprises 17 models with output voltages spanning 2 to 48 Vdc and power levels from 100 to 250 W. The converters operate from 300 V nominal input, with an input range of 180 V to 375 V. Efficiencies range up to 89% for the higher output voltages. These models are available in five different environmental grades, with six different pin options and three baseplate options. They can be also be configured in any combination using Vicor's PowerBench(TM) tools which allow a customer to configure an infinite array of custom module designs on-line, and verify them in real time, at www.vicorpower.com.

The modules, which are optionally available in RoHS compliant models, are a compact 2.28 x 2.2 x 0.5 inch (57,9 x 55,9 x 12,7mm) in size with a height above board of 0.43 inch (10,9mm).

"These new models complement our broad portfolio of DC-DC converters and provide designers with additional cost-effective options," said Joe Sullivan, Product Marketing Manager.

Pricing for the 300 Vdc Mini models begin from as low as $87 USD (5V, 150W, E Grade) in 100-piece quantities. Lead times can be as short as three weeks for prototype quantities.
