Aircraft cargo handling system

Vicor has recently provided a power solution to a commercial aircraft industry supplier that designs, manufactures and supports complete on-board baggage and cargo handling systems for many of the world’s major airlines. Simplicity of installation, operation and maintenance is important in such applications. The equipment must be durable and light-weight, yet be capable of withstanding shock, vibration and low temperatures. Vicor’s VI-Junior DC-DC converter products’ ability to meet all these requirements made them an ideal choice for the customer when designing the control units for the cargo handling system. Vicor’s long and broad experience...

Thermal management for Cool-Power isolated DC-DC converters

Communications and storage equipment designers remain under constant pressure to increase system performance whilst using less board area and smaller form factors. Improved power system density can make a significant contribution to this goal by freeing up board space for system-level features. Picor’s new PI3101 Cool-Power Isolated DC-DC converter offers designers an ideal solution, with a power density up to three times greater from less than half the size of conventional packages. The 60 W PI3101 has a regulated output of +3.3 V, operates from a 36 V – 75 V input voltage range...

MIL-COTS Bus Converter Module Reduces System Size and Weight

Military aircraft and ships typically use an isolated 270 VDC power distribution system, specified to MIL-STD-740E/F. However the equipment it supplies, such as radar, processors, radio, satellite and GPS all requires lower regulated or unregulated DC voltages. Vicor’s new high-efficiency, non-regulated MIL-COTS BCM bus converter MBCM270F450M270A00 operates from 270 VDC power and is fully MIL-STD-740E/F compliant. It provides a nominal 45 VDC output with better than 96% efficiency and over 800 W/in³ power density. Minimising equipment size and weight, while maintaining power capacity, is always a primary concern within mobile military applications, whether air,...
