The New Vicorpower.com website.  Making it easier to design your power system

In conversations with power design engineers over the last year, we identified several areas where we could improve our website to make the design challenge easy. As part of research we undertook engineers took us through their design process and how they needed a website to support that process. It was that information we used as the basis for the redesign and enhancement of vicorpower.com. The areas where we focused our improvement efforts include making it easy to navigate, select, configure, architect and design advanced power systems. In the area of navigation, we simplified...

Fast, Online Simulations Shape Advanced Power Supply Architectures

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...
