DC/DC Converter Trims Design Footprint

Diamond Electric’s business card-sized, thin isolated bidirectional dc/dc converter (IBDC) is suitable for use in electric vehicles (EVs) and smart grids. In recent years, requirements of large-capacity batteries for EVs and smart grids are causing rechargeable batteries to have higher voltage. Therefore, demands are growing for higher-level isolation of DCDC converters to ensure safety and meet safety standards.

 

The IBDC employs a unique controlling technology and combines both charger and discharger circuits. Adopting a high-frequency switching technology up to 2 MHz), the IBDC measures 93.5 mm x 60 mm x 10.5 mm excluding control circuit and heatsink. Furthermore, the use of gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductor enables an efficiency up to 95%. For more details, checkout an IBDC datasheet.
