Video: Cool-Power ZVS DC-DC High Density Converter Modules

Vicor’s new Cool-Power DC-DC converters utilize an advanced Zero-Voltage Switching (ZVS) architecture and high-performance planar magnetics to enable IC-like density and greater PCB layout flexibility in space-constrained environments. The high-switching frequency (900 kHz) of series converters reduces input filter and output capacitance requirements, drastically reducing space requirements.

How Adaptive Cell Topology Benefits AC Applications

With the wide variation in AC line voltages around the world, universal power supplies are typically designed to accept 85VRMS to 264VRMS inputs. This range has imposed significant design trade-offs on the power factor corrected AC rectification typically used in front end converters. The Vicor PFM isolated AC-DC converter with PFC, and the AC Front End Module both have Adaptive Cell™ topology at their heart, providing a breakthrough in AC front end power factor correction that addresses these trade-offs to provide a consistently efficient solution. It does so by introducing innovation at three different...

Back to Basics: What are Y-Capacitors?

What’s the background? When electronic equipment is connected to the AC mains, it has the potential to generate common-mode electrical noise. If this is allowed to flow back on to the mains supply line, it can disturb other equipment also connected to the same line.
