PowerBench Tool Suite Delivers Customer-Configurable VI Chip PRM Modules

Designers can now configure and customize Vicor’s VI Chip PRM modules quickly and efficiently using the new PowerBench tool. This is the first time that we’ve broadened our customization to VI Chip products, allowing designers to exploit the high-frequency, ZVS buck-boost technology in a configuration to meet the exact needs of the their application, without incurring NRE costs.

Fast, Online Simulations Shape Advanced Power Supply Architectures

The task of the power system engineer grows steadily more complex. At the level of individual PCBs, semiconductor devices – microprocessors, FPGAs and the like – demand a range of discrete voltage levels, frequently at around 1 V and at currents of tens of Amps. The physics of distributing power at these levels mandates regulation as close to the point-of-load as possible: I2R losses and minute but inescapable inductances are always poised to degrade the performance of low-voltage, high-current paths that see rapid step-changes in power demand. At the other end of the power-conversion...

DC-DC Selection Just Got Better… and Easier to Find

July 20, 2012

At Vicor we’ve developed a wide range of tools to make it easy to search for the right product from the over 100,000,000+ possible product permutations that we have available (one of our apps guys summed them all up in this post: Check All the Options and Find the Power Product for you). The most recent, our DC-DC selection tool, has been developed with a twist in that it also incorporates a simulator for a growing list of DC-DC converters. This means an engineer can interactively model the electrical and thermal performance in application-specific operating conditions...
