DCM Arrays are Ideal Solution for Power-Hungry Applications from 320 W to 4.8 kW

With modern electronic systems demanding more and more power, it can be difficult to find a power component that is able to deliver sufficient energy. The Vicor power component design methodology is a simple approach that allows designers to build exactly the power chain they need by combining different functional blocks to create a flexible solution that delivers all the power rails the application requires. Engineers using this approach would simply select multiple power components to increase the current output. Increasing the output current by using several converters in parallel is not always straightforward...
