High density PFM AC-DC front-end modules

12 January 2016

Digi-Key announced they will distribute Vicor‘s family of PFM AC-DC front-end modules that offer high cooling performance and versatility in converter mounting.

Featuring a universal AC input range (85 – 264 VAC), power factor correction, and a fully isolated 24 VDC or 48 VDC output, and delivering 400W of isolated, regulated, DC output power at efficiencies up to 93%, these new modules provide a high power density of 127 W/in3 (8 W/cm3) and efficient performance in a diminutive, 9mm thin, VIA package. The new units are ideally suited for use in a broad range of industrial, process control, telecommunications, office equipment, test and measurement, LED lighting and other “off-line” applications.

Rob Russell, Vicor’s Vice President of Vicor Power Systems, said PFM AC-DC front-end modules in the VIA package provide designers with a quick and easy pathway to a high-performance, high-density AC-DC front-end solution, while eliminating the uncertainties and long design cycles associated with a custom front-end design. Leveraging Vicor’s modular power components and Power Component Design Methodology, Digi-Key customers can architect complete source to load power systems with unprecedented ‘building block’ ease and flexibility.

Offering power systems designers a rugged, modular, fully integrated AC-to-DC front end solution with much higher power density than alternative products, the new PFM AC-to-DC front-end modules are compatible with a wide variety of available downstream power conversion components.

Tom Busher, VP, Global I P & E at Digi-Key, said they are pleased to have the opportunity to distribute Vicor’s new PFM front-end modules to a global customer base. With these new products, engineers can rapidly design and deploy complete off-line power systems featuring predictable performance and unrivaled power density, efficiency and reliability.
