BOSTON International Power Devices' 100-, 150- and 300-W VWS and VWB booster family of dc/dc converters are full-brick devices capable of providing up to 50 A. They use advanced planar magnetics and open-frame packaging, according to the company.
Those fixed-frequency converters are available with a range of 24- or 48-V nominal inputs. Output voltages include 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 24 or 48 V. VWB booster modules can be used in parallel with VWS modules to provide high-power solutions using multiple converters.
The VWx series is rated for 100 degrees C baseplate operation and has 1,500 Vdc of isolation. Other safety features include output overvoltage protection and short-circuit protection. The VWS family has remote-enable and sense pins, plus a voltage-adjust pin that allows for a plus/minus 10 percent trim range. Delivery is stock to six weeks. Pricing for the VWS300 is $110 each in OEM quantities.
