ANDOVER, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today introduced a new series of DC-DC bricks with the announcement of its "HD Brick Series" of converters. Vicor's new isolated HD Bricks retain the fundamental design attributes of conventional bricks, while providing up to 51% greater power density than competing brick products, with efficiency levels up to 94%.
HD Brick Series DC-to-DC converters enable system designers to harness more power in less space than with competing brick-based products and Vicor's earlier generation Maxi, Mini and Micro DC-to-DC converters. The first two standard offerings in Vicor's HD Brick Series portfolio are a 320 W HD Brick with nominal 28 Vin (16 - to 50 V input range) and 28 Vout, in a 48.6 x 46.5 x 16mm package, and a 400 W HD Brick with nominal 300 Vin (180 - 420 V input range) and 12 Vout, in a 57 x 46.5 x 16mm package. These DC-DC converters are available in flange and flangeless versions, can operate in harsh environments, and support three temperature grades, including operation to -55 degrees C. They can be deployed in combination with Vicor's ZVS Buck Regulators and VI Chip® power components to power the point of load portion of the power system.
