Sine Amplitude Converter topology explained

January 18, 2012

Sine Amplitude Converter or SAC topology is the driving force behind the high performance achieved by Vicor’s V•I Chip converters: superior speed, efficiency and flexibility.

To see how, watch this explainer video “How the Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC™) Topology works” by Paul Yeaman, Director, V•I Chip Application Engineering…

In just over four minutes Paul will walk you through the technology, using one possible implementation of the topology, consisting of a full bridge primary stage and a center-tap rectifier output stage.

There is also a white paper that looks at its use in IBA applications, “The Sine Amplitude Converter Topology Provides Superior Efficiency and Power Density in Intermediate Bus Architecture Applications“.
