Vicor Provides Digi-Key with Another Geek Moment

April 8, 2014
By

The Digi-Key Another Geek Moment video series is a favourite for engineers, providing interesting and unusual demonstrations of the capabilities of different manufacturers’ products. In a recent video, a Vicor AC-DC supply is coupled with one of our IBCs, which steps down 48 V to 12 V, to start an all-terrain vehicle (ATV or quad bike). The demonstration illustrates an important point: some applications require very high peak currents, which many power supplies struggle to deliver.

Learn More About the New 380 V BCM From Vicor

January 31, 2014
By

The recently-released 380 VDC Bus Converter Module (BCM), the first product utilizing our new ChiP platform, has attracted a lot of attention. Efficiency of up to 98%, 1/8 step-down ratio and breakthrough power density (four times better than competing solutions) makes it an important device to enable HVDC power system architectures. In this video, Gary Gill, Director of Vicor’s VI Chip, explains the features of the ChiP BCM that allow engineers to develop power architectures that meet the efficiency, density and performance goals of the most demanding applications.       More information: 380...

Video Explains How New BCM Helps to Enable HVDC Architectures

January 15, 2014
By

We have just announced the launch of our new Bus Converter Modules (BCM®) based on the new Converter Housed in Package (ChiP) platform. The new devices deliver 48 VDC from a nominal input of 380 VDC with 98% efficiency, making them ideal components for high voltage DC (HVDC) power distribution. In this video, Maurizio Salato, Director of Systems Engineering at Vicor, explains the functionality of the new devices, how the new BCM can be used to create very efficient HVDC power system architectures and the benefits of the approach for a range of different applications.  ...

Video: Cool-Power ZVS DC-DC High Density Converter Modules

June 17, 2013
By

Vicor’s new Cool-Power DC-DC converters utilize an advanced Zero-Voltage Switching (ZVS) architecture and high-performance planar magnetics to enable IC-like density and greater PCB layout flexibility in space-constrained environments. The high-switching frequency (900 kHz) of series converters reduces input filter and output capacitance requirements, drastically reducing space requirements.
