VICOR DCM5614 Isolated Regulated DC Converter

Vicor’s DCM5614 Isolated Regulated DC-DC Converter provides high efficiency and high-density power conversion for applications in defense, aerospace, and communications systems. The DCM5614 operates from a 180V to 400V input and can deliver up to 1300W on an isolated and regulated 28V Safety Extra Low Voltage output. 

The low-profile and high power density modules are available in chassis- or PCB-mount VIA packages with low thermal top- and bottom-side thermal resistances for flexible mounting. The converters use ZVS and ZCS high-frequency switching for high efficiency and high power density with low noise and fast transient response. This also enables low-profile, high-density output filtering. The DCM5614 is available with PMBus management or an analog control interface and includes multiple protection features and a fully operational current limit.
