New FIAM Family Product for Defense Applications

Vicor’s Filtered Input Attenuator Modules (FIAMs) are designed for power systems engineers needing front-end EMC filtering and transient protection without incurring excessive costs, delay or demands on space. The FIAM family has just been extended for defense applications by the addition of the MIL-COTS 28Vin M-FIAM7B. This new device, like the existing FIAMs, provides EMC filtering, transient protection and inrush current limiting, to meet relevant MIL Standards. The M-FIAM7B is compatible with 28 VDC V•I Chip and VI BRICK modules. The M-FIAM7B, which uses active clamping, is qualified to MIL-STD-1275A/B/D for transient spike and...

How to Meet European Standards for Rail Applications

September 4, 2011
By

In this video, Marco Panizza, Vicor’s European Applications Manager shows how Vicor’s modular DC-DC converters can meet or exceed European railway standards IEC571/EN51055 and RIA12 if design guidelines are carefully followed. These standards address the harsh environment issues that characterise rail applications, including shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, restricted space, varying voltages, EMC and reliability.
