A New Way to Remotely Operate Your MicroPAC

One of the great things about the MicroPAC from Vicor’s Westcor Division is its flexibility. It is now even easier to configure and operate a MicroPAC, with the launch of the new dongle adaptor and Windows software. Simply plug in the dongle and download the free software available from the Vicor website (software available December 2013) that provides a GUI interface to allow an operator to control the unit remotely. Click connect and the system will check for a connected MicroPAC and then allow the operator to enter the model number. The software is...

Why Customers Choose the Westcor MicroPAC

October 9, 2013
By

The Westcor MicroPAC power system is a universal voltage input, power factor corrected AC-DC power supply. It’s based on Vicor’s VI Chip BCM technology, which not only increases efficiency to up to 92%, but also allows the MicroPAC to deliver up to 1300 W with a power density of 25 W/in3. This efficient AC-DC solution is available in both fan-cooled and conduction cooled packages, and it’s performance means it finds applications in a wide range of applications including industrial, test and measurement, communications and defense. The performance of the MicroPAC enables customers to solve challenging design...

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.

How Adaptive Cell Topology Benefits AC Applications

June 11, 2013
By

With the wide variation in AC line voltages around the world, universal power supplies are typically designed to accept 85VRMS to 264VRMS inputs. This range has imposed significant design trade-offs on the power factor corrected AC rectification typically used in front end converters. The Vicor PFM isolated AC-DC converter with PFC, and the AC Front End Module both have Adaptive Cell™ topology at their heart, providing a breakthrough in AC front end power factor correction that addresses these trade-offs to provide a consistently efficient solution. It does so by introducing innovation at three different...
