Robert Gendron Rethinks Processor Power Chains in ECN

ECN MagazineIn his recent article in ECN, Robert Gendron, vice president of Vicor’s Picor division, discusses why designers should take advantage of new power components that are able to step down from 48 V to the low voltages required by modern processors in a single stage.

Compared to using a 12 V intermediate bus for processor power chain development, single-stage conversion from 48 V provides significant improvements in overall efficiency. Indeed, if the overall efficiency of data centers is to be improved, and the total cost of ownership reduced, a 48 V direct-to-processor solution is the best approach.

Read Robert’s article today to learn more about the benefits of dropping the 12 V intermediate bus in processor power chains.
