Vicor announced the released of the DCM5614, a new isolated DC-DC converter. The converter is isolated and regulated at 270V-28V.

Additionally, it features an output power rating of 1300W, while it measures in at just 5.6in x 1.4in x .3in. Power density comes in at 451W/in3 with a weight of 178g. DCM5614 was developed for efficient-critical applications such as airborne, shipboard, and UAV systems.

Power dissipation is reduced due to a 96% efficiency. Furthermore, the planar and VIA package enables multiple cooling capabilities for increased thermal performance. For increased power, modules can be paralleled, while those looking for increased output voltage can stack the modules.
