New Technical Support Center (Taiwan) in Asia is Now Open – 亚太区台湾技术支持中心正式运营

Taiwan is an exciting market for us, with huge potential opportunities, especially in computing, industrial power and communications applications. To help power designers in the region, we have opened a new Technical Support Centre (TSC), where our experts will assist engineers in the development of advanced power management schemes for powering microprocessors and DDR memory, including Intel VR12/12.5 specification-compliant direct 48 V-to-processor power conversion techniques. The new TSC opened today, with, and we spoke to Asia VP, Eric Wong, and Taiwan TSC Leader, Francis Weng., about the significance of the opening of our newest...

Robert Gendron Explains Why 48 V is the New 12 V in this On-Demand Webinar

Power system designers in a variety of applications, including telecoms, data centers, automotive, industrial, lighting and aerospace, have long relied on a 12 V intermediate (or hub) bus to distribute electrical power. With increasing demands for higher output powers in smaller spaces, and the need to improve efficiency, 12 V is rapidly being replaced with 48 V. By moving to a higher voltage, engineers reduce the I2R loss in cabling, improving power efficiency. The smaller, lighter cabling is also cheaper, offers easier routing of power, and enables further energy savings, particularly in transportation applications where weight...

Embedded News Discusses the Benefits of the Power Component Design Methodology with Claudio Tuozzolo

November 29, 2014
By

During the recent electronica trade show, Carolina Kleinken-Palma, editor of Embedded-News.tv, interviewed Claudio Tuozzolo, president of Vicor’s Picor division about the benefits of Vicor’s power component design methodology. In the video, Claudio explains how the modular and scalable approach enables power system designers to develop high-performance solutions for a wide range of applications. He gives an example of a system that uses a product based on the VIA packaging technology that was unveiled at the show to produce a 48 V hub voltage. This hub voltage can be directly converted to voltages as low...

Whiteboard of the Week: LED Display Panel for Traffic Management

One of the latest Whiteboard Power Chains of the Week is a power system for an LED display panel that was developed by Marco La Ciacera, our technical sales engineer for Southern Europe. Here’s what he told us about this design.   Can you explain a little more about the application? The power chain was designed for a variable message sign (VMS), signs that can be placed in a wide range of places like highways, major road junctions, and urban arteries. Typically installed at the side or above the roadway, the VMS uses text...
