Vicor Announces New High Voltage, High Density VoI Chip Bus Converter

Isolated 352 V to 11 V, 300 Watt converter for HV Distribution Systems, AC-DC SMPS and RF Amplifiers

Andover, MA, December 13, 2006...Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) announced the availability of a high-voltage VoI Chip Bus Converter with a power density of greater than 1000 W/in3. Designated B352F110T30, this BCM(TM) converter is a high-efficiency (>95%), Sine Amplitude Converter(TM) (SAC) operating from a 330-365 Vdc primary bus to deliver an isolated 10.3 - 11.4 V secondary.

Used individually or in multiple with paralleled outputs for higher power, the converter offers the highest power density HV DC-DC system for offline AC-DC SMPS and high voltage distribution systems. Additionally, outputs may be connected in series to create higher voltages for applications such as RF amplifiers.

This Telecom-grade BCM module - which is a 25% power upgrade over previous high-voltage VoI Chips - enables faster, easier design (faster time to market) and offers smaller, more efficient, and higher power density power conversion solutions.

The VoI Chip Bus Converter Module package ? measuring 1.28" x 0.87" x 0.26" ? is compatible with standard pick-and-place surface-mount machinery and assembly processes. It provides flexible thermal management through its low junction-to-case and junction-to-board thermal resistance. Due to its high conversion efficiency and safe operating temperature range, the BCM may not require a heatsink in typical applications.

"The extreme efficiency and high power density of the new 300 W high-voltage BCM enables new application form factors that would not be possible with a traditional discrete implementation," said Stephen Oliver, Vice President of Marketing and Sales.

The Bus Converter Module B352F110T30 is priced at $37.40 in OEM quantities, and is available immediately from stock. To order, contact Vicor Customer Service at 800-735-6200 or e-mail custserv@vicr.com.
