Webinar: A New Top-Down Approach to Power System Design

Webinar: A New Top-Down Approach to Power System Design

I’ve spent many years working with companies to help them architect power distribution in their designs. The most common approach, where engineers segment large power systems, designing each section in isolation (pardon the pun!), has been used for years. But is this the best way?

New Videos, Webinars and Products

Vicor closed out 2012 on a strong note. In November, we exhibited at Electronica 2012 in Munich, Germany where we launched three new products, including one for AC to DC conversion. We also launched a series of live seminars, recorded video blogs live from the show and participated in video interviews with key electronics media. Here’s a round up, complete with the relevant links:

Webinar Rebroadcast: Best Practices Using DC-DC Bricks

DC-DC Bricks simplify the design of power supply systems compared to discrete solutions, which require a lot of effort and considerations. Even so, power supply architects still face many challenges that can result in costly mistakes.

Webinar Rebroadcast Now Available:
“The Three Approaches to Power”

January 11, 2012
By

If you didn’t make our recent webinar – the first in the series “The Critical Design Challenges for Power” – you can still access the rebroadcast version here: The Three Approaches to Power Even though I say it myself, Tom Curatolo, our director of applications engineering did a great job talking about the challenges faced by today’s power system designers and the advantages of the various power architectures available to them. He discussed how the evolution of system requirements – higher power, higher density, higher input voltages, higher load currents and last but not least,...

Addressing the New Challenges in Power Distribution

Power supplies have traditionally been designed as “silver boxes” or “bricks”: a self-contained, autonomous voltage-in, voltage-out device, with minimal-impact mechanical and electrical integration with the host system. However, evolution of system requirements – higher power, higher density, higher input voltages, higher load currents and last but not least, higher efficiency –  clearly requires alternative, integrated approaches. With each generation of processor, memory, DSP and ASIC chip, lower voltages at higher currents challenge the infrastructure to supply contemporary “loads” with the requisite electrons.  Electricity from an AC outlet, or a wall plug, typically goes through...
