Vicor Corporation’s New Addition of High Density PFM AC-DC Front-End Modules Now Available Through Digi-Key

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 6, 2016 — Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, today announced they will be distributing Vicor Corporation’s new family of high density PFM® AC-DC front-end modules in the rugged VIA package that offers superior 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 400 W of isolated, regulated, DC output power at efficiencies up to 93%, these new modules provide unprecedented power density of 127 W/in3 (8 W/cm3) and best-in-class performance in a diminutive, 9 mm 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.

“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,” said Rob Russell, Vicor’s Vice President of Vicor Power Systems. “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.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to distribute Vicor’s new PFM front-end modules to our global customer base,” said Tom Busher, VP, Global I P & E at Digi-Key. “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.”
