Optimizing for Datacenter Power System Efficiency and Reduced Energy Costs

Optimizing for Datacenter Power System Efficiency and Reduced Energy Costs

There are no sloppy designs in datacenters. To the consumer a datacenter is just another pipe in the cloud, a conduit for their data and experiences.  However, to the industry giants wringing real dollars (in the form of demographic studies, transactional charges, and raw click-based advertising) a datacenter is the backbone of their business operations. Just like the assembly lines of Ford and the coke furnaces of Carnegie, the most efficient (least cost to operate) datacenter provides the greatest set of financial and operational benefits to their owners.

High Density Power Solutions for Heavy Power Regulation

High Density Power  Solutions for Heavy Power Regulation

Vicor’s VI Chip PRM is a very efficient non-isolated regulator for high power applications, delivering up to 500 W from a single chip. It uses Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) technology to  buck and boost a wide range of input voltages, providing a regulated, adjustable output voltage. In this post we see why the PRM improves and eases power system design, and give an overview of the internal topology behind its power density and efficiency.
