Vicor ChiP DCM DC-DC converter for railway applications

Wednesday, 07 February, 2018 | Supplied by: Vicor Corporation

Vicor has released its next generation of DCMs, with a family of wide input range (43–154 V), 36 x 23 mm ChiPs with power levels up to 240 W and 93% efficiency, targeted at rail transportation and infrastructure applications.

Modern rail infrastructure requires a wide range of DC-DC converters to power a variety of services for both freight and commuter markets. Commuter rail systems require mobile office communication capabilities with the infotainment capabilities of home. Freight rail systems require monitoring and control capabilities to assure the safe and timely delivery of all goods onboard. Both commuter and freight systems demand high-performance power systems for the necessary safety and security measures (onboard and at station).

Vicor’s DCM is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter module that can operate from an unregulated, wide-range input to generate an isolated DC output. The ChiP DCM simplifies power system designs by supporting multiple input voltage ranges in a single ChiP.

Contained in a ChiP package less than 10 cm2, the DCM offers engineers density and efficiency. All models are also available in an M-Grade version capable of operating down to -55°C.
