800/12V DC/DC Converter

Prodrive Technologies’ 800/12V DC/DC Converter (DCU8001) technology offers flexible solutions for high-voltage automotive systems. The DCU8001 series DC/DC converter is a cost effective solution to supply the 12V board net using high-voltage (HV) voltages of 470V – 840V nominal. The converter is software configurable up to full bi-directional power in buck mode and in boost mode. The peak power is 3.6kW to enable for example starting of the internal combustion engine. The continuous power level of 3kW increases to 3.6kW at low coolant temperatures.

Integration

The design of the DC/DC converter is modular and allows for seamless integration with Prodrive Technologies’ traction inverters or third party systems. Mechanics, cooling concept and housing are designed for integration in E-powertrain systems.

Applications

The DCU8001 can be applied in hybrid vehicles and full electric vehicles. The wide DC voltage range supports multiple battery voltages.
