DC-DC Selection Just Got Better… and Easier to Find

July 20, 2012

At Vicor we’ve developed a wide range of tools to make it easy to search for the right product from the over 100,000,000+ possible product permutations that we have available (one of our apps guys summed them all up in this post: Check All the Options and Find the Power Product for you).

The most recent, our DC-DC selection tool, has been developed with a twist in that it also incorporates a simulator for a growing list of DC-DC converters. This means an engineer can interactively model the electrical and thermal performance in application-specific operating conditions and thermal environments. Pretty impressive. And the functionality of the tool we’ve been promoting.

But customers have been telling us we’ve been hiding our light under a bushel as we’ve not let everyone know just what a great selection tool it is. As the name suggests this tool allows a user to quickly find the most appropriate DC-DC converter from our range of products. All you need to do is enter your required power-related parameters. The system then calculates the various ways for you to achieve those parameters, allowing you to order the suggested solutions by the criteria most important to you, whether that be efficiency, PCB area taken, no load power dissipation, mounting style, or the myriad of other filters provided.

What makes it even better is that the range of products that the selector searches against has just been expanded, with the addition of our range of Brick power modules and the newly-launched Picor Cool-Power ZVS Buck Regulators.

Try it out: DC-DC Solution Selector

To make it easier to use and find we’ve created a widget, which has been added to our newly redesigned home page. Alternatively you can bookmark the DC-DC Solution Selector, or add the widget to your own site.

To place the widget on your website just incorporate the following code:

<iframe src=”http://sapps.vicorpower.com/SolutionSelector/web/extInit.do?bgColor=f9f9f9&appTitle=DC-DC Solution Selector” frameborder=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” width=”211″ height=”350″></iframe>

This widget will pop up a new window with the results of your search.  You may change frame border, margin width, margin height and width / height to fit your web page needs.

Let us know what you think of the widget by posting below…

    Widget did not seem to work. We are looking for a 400 VDC(300-430) to 12 and 24 V – 300 W isolated DC/DC converter. Do you have anything?

      Thanks for your comment. The widget may not have worked because of your browser’s pop-up blocker. All the tools can be found at http://www.vicorpower.com/powerbench. And we will contact you directly regarding your 300 W isolated DC/DC converter question.
