There’s nothing easy in power design!

September 19, 2013

Vicor spends a lot of time trying to understand the challenges faced by our customers and working out the biggest issues power designers must overcome. The logic is simple: if we can solve the problems, everyone is going to be successful.

Power system design, however, isn’t quite so simple, as our recent survey showed. When we asked you to tell us the biggest challenge you faced in developing power systems, the answer was clear: everything! Unlike most other surveys, the responses were spread pretty evenly between the different problems engineers have to overcome.

To be fair, cost did get the most votes. Perhaps that’s not surprising in these tough economic times. However size, efficiency, EMI, output power and simply finding products with the right inputs and outputs all followed close behind.

At least we learned one thing: there is no “magic bullet” in power systems design. Products must help engineers overcome all the challenges faced when developing a modern, efficient and cost-effective power system. It’s a tall order, but you can be sure we’re continuing to work on it!  Explore our website or subscribe to the blog newsletter to find out what we have been doing: the new products we’ve launched and the new tools we’ve introduced.
