Vicor widget serves up DC-DC selection tool
The twist, says the company, is that it also incorporates a simulator for a growing list of DC-DC converters. ‘This means an engineer can interactively model the electrical and thermal performance in application-specific operating conditions and thermal environments,’ states Vicor.

Customers have been telling us we’ve been hiding our light under a bushel as we’ve not let everyone know just what a great selection tool it is. As the name suggests this tool allows a user to quickly find the most appropriate DC-DC converter from our range of products. All you need to do is enter your required power-related parameters. The system then calculates the various ways for you to achieve those parameters, allowing you to order the suggested solutions by the criteria most important to you, whether that be efficiency, PCB area taken, no load power dissipation, mounting style, or the myriad of other filters provided.
