Vicor has announced a 20 A version of its Cool-Power ZVS Buck, PI3325-00-LGIZ. It represents the highest current output ZVS buck to date for 24 V / 28 V applications, providing a regulated 5 V output at up to 20 A. Packaged within a 10 mm x 14 mm x 2.5 mm LGA SiP package, the PI3325-00-LGIZ addresses the continued need for high power density across a growing spectrum of applications. It also offers pin-for-pin compatibility to a 48V input version ZVS buck, the PI3525-00-LGIZ, enabling designs to be quickly ported from 24 VIN capability to 48 VIN.
The PI3325-00-LGIZ requires only an output inductor and minimal passives for a complete, cost-effective, compact design that consumes less than 740 mm2 of PCB real estate. Higher current is also achievable by parallel operation of the regulator. The PI3325-00-LGIZ represents one regulator within a new portfolio of higher current 24V ZVS bucks already or soon to be released.
According to Vicor, Cool-Power ZVS regulators deliver more power at higher temperatures than competitive devices, without sacrificing power density or efficiency. Key attributes to the Cool-Power ZVS regulators’ high performance include zero-voltage switching topology, high silicon integration, and high density LGA SiP packaging. These high performance regulators are also simple to use.
