Innovative Power Device to Support Intermediate Bus Architecture Designs

November 05, 2012 // By Jeffrey A. Ham, Douglas Ping, Vicor
For a majority of applications implemented today, the Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA) has become the preferred power architecture. This power architecture has led to the development of the isolated, semi-regulated DC-DC converter known as the Intermediate Bus Converter (IBC). IBCs are an improvement to the standard regulated “Brick” DC-DC module, yet system requirements continue to evolve and are pushing the limits of these power devices. A new generation of IBC products, called Bus Converter Modules (BCMs), has been developed to address these challenges.
