Today density and efficiency are the new power duo in the electronics industry. System designers are seeking power solutions which offer the maximum usable power in the least amount of space and allow them to reclaim board space for high-value components that yield competitive advantages including greater system functionality.
Available now, the new IB050Q096T80N1-00 IBC module operates from a 36V to 60V input voltage range, with 2,250Vdc isolation from input to output while achieving 98% peak efficiency. Rated at up to 80 Amps, 850W from 55 to 60 VIN and 550W from 36 VIN, the 2.30 x 1.45 x 0.42 inch quarter-brick module allows designers to conserve valuable board space and achieve full load operation at 50 °C with 400 LFM airflow.
The module’s open frame construction facilitates airflow above and below the module. This helps the IBC minimize temperature rise of downstream components and deliver maximum usable power in thermally constrained systems. The IBC050 series modules, while pin-compatible with industry standard ‘square wave’ bus converters, offer the high performance of Vicor’s Sine Amplitude Converter™ topology. Operating at 1 MHz, the IB050Q096T80N1-00 IBC module cuts transient response time by a factor of 10 and eliminates the need for bulk capacitors across the intermediate bus.
The newest addition to Vicor’s IBC050 product line of high performance, wide input range VI BRICK™ is ideally suited for demanding telecom applications such as enterprise, optical access and storage networks.
