Vicor Launches 800V Bus Converter
June 28, 2019
Vicor's 800V BCM4414 is a 1.6kW, isolated, 1/16 fixed-ratio, bus converter module (BCM) that can operate from a 500V to 800V input voltage.
Vicor’s 800V BCM4414 is a 1.6kW, isolated, 1/16 fixed-ratio, bus converter module (BCM) that can operate from a 500V to 800V input voltage, to deliver SELV output voltages with 97 percent peak efficiency. The new 800V module complements the existing Vicor 700V BCM4414, to create a family of products with reinforced isolation (4,242VDC) and bidirectional voltage conversion capability.
The BCM can be paralleled into higher-power arrays, and the SELV outputs can be stacked (connected in series) for higher output voltages. Both BCMs are available in a 111 x 36 x 9.3mm VIA (Vicor Integrated Adapter) package, which has integrated PMBus communication, EMI filtering, and voltage-transient protection. The VIA’s planar form factor package simplifies heat management and ease of interface to a wide variety of cooling technologies. The BCMs are available in either M-Grade (-55 to 100°C) or T-Grade (-40 to 100˚C).
