Why Engineers Need a Non-Isolated Bus Converter (NBM)

Why Engineers Need a Non-Isolated Bus Converter (NBM)

Bus converters are highly popular, flexible power components that traditionally provide an isolated intermediate bus voltage to power PoL (Point-of-Load) converters or serve as an isolated voltage source. They are widely used in applications such as ATE, server, telecom, and industrial control. Last week we announced a different type of bus converter – a non-isolated fixed ratio bus converter module (NBM) based on our ChiP package: the first bus converters that do not offer isolation. So why did we create this new category of power components? There are several...

Maurizio Salato to Present Novel Non-Isolated Architecture for 48 V Systems at INTELEC 2015

Maurizio Salato to Present Novel Non-Isolated Architecture for 48 V Systems at INTELEC 2015

Maurizio Salato, director, power systems engineering at Vicor will present a new power architecture for equipment using a 48 V bus at INTELEC 2015. Traditionally equipment such as telecommunications and data processing systems that use a 48 V bus have chosen isolated bus converters, which offer less power density and lower efficiency than is possible with non-isolated components. In this paper, Maurizio explains why modern systems may not require isolation of the 48 V bus. He highlights benefits of eliminating the isolation, which go beyond the higher performance that...
