Vicor 1300W Power Converter Offers 96% Efficiency

Vicor DCM5614

 May 4, 2020

Vicor has announced the DCM5614, an isolated, regulated 270V-28V DC-DC converter with an output power rating of 1300W in a 5.6×1.4×0.3 inch VIA package. Providing unmatched power density of 451W/in3 at a weight of just 178g, the DCM5614 supports advanced airborne, shipboard and UAV systems where power density, weight and efficiency are critical.

With 96% efficiency, power dissipation is significantly reduced, and the innovative planar and thermally adept VIA package enables multiple cooling strategies for enhanced thermal performance. Modules can also be easily paralleled for increased power or stacked for increased output voltage.

When combined with downstream regulators and PoL current multipliers, the DCM enables power system architects to achieve power-system solutions with outstanding performance metrics and low total cost.

  • Isolated, regulated DC-DC converter
  • Up to 1300W, 46.43A continuous
  • 96% peak efficiency
  • 451W/in3 power density
  • Wide input range 180 – 400VDC
  • Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) 28V nominal output
  • 2121VDC isolation
  • ZVS, ZCS high-frequency switching
