The New MIL-COTS PRM® Regulator

The new Vicor PRM regulator (MPRM48NF480M500A00) is based on our VI Chip® platform, and provides power density of 106W/cm3 and efficiency of 97.7%. The new regulator delivers 500W output power in the same package size as our earlier generation 120W MIL-COTS PRMs. For applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) this fourfold increase in power density can provide a game-changing advantage. Designers of military systems are acutely focused on achieving aggressive size, weight and power (SWAP) profiles that will give military vehicles greater agility to fulfill increasingly ambitious missions. Reducing the weight of UAVs...
