A Unique Technical Resource for Engineers

Vicor is proud to be a sponsor of a free technical website for engineers. We’ve invited David Morrison, the founder and editor, to tell you firsthand about this valuable resource.

As engineers push the performance of their system designs to higher and higher levels, the demands placed on the power supplies, modules, and components used to power these designs continue to grow too. Over time, engineers need these power products to deliver more current and more power across multiple supply voltages with greater efficiency, while occupying less space. Meanwhile, there are numerous other power supply requirements such as transient response, sequencing, fault protection and monitoring, EMC, safety approvals, etc., which complicate and create design challenges in powering your applications.

To help engineers address these design challenges, offers a number of unique

  • The How2Power Design Guide, a search tool that leads you to articles, app notes, videos and other pre-screened materials from various sources on all aspects of power conversion and power system design. How2Power’s unique summaries of these source materials help you locate relevant design information quickly.
  • The How2Power Today Newsletter, which presents some of the industry’s most in-depth technical articles on design techniques, solutions, and products for power conversion in a range of applications and across a range of power levels. These articles are written by respected experts in industry. Sign up for your free subscription today.
  • The Consultants Corner directory of power supply design consultants, which describes the special services and experience offered by some of the industry’s most accomplished power electronics experts.
  • Power Around The Web, a section of the website that points to over 150 free, power-related resources across the Internet. In this section, you’ll find descriptions of blogs, charts & references, design notes and tools, industry organizations, job listings, product guides, publications, and more.
  • The Power Electronics Bookstore, which carries classic texts on power supply design and power magnetics design as well as power technology roadmaps.
  • The Events Calendar, which lists selected conferences, tradeshows, and workshops related directly or indirectly to power conversion.

As a supporter of, Vicor contributes to the many technical resources on the site through How2Power’s Sponsor Showcase. In this section, you can access technical webinars on a range of power-related subjects of interest to design engineers. The Sponsor Showcase also presents short videos discussing the latest Vicor products and technologies.

Visit today and discover the wealth of free technical information it offers to help you address your power design challenges.
