As the year comes to an end, we thought it would be interesting to look back to see the most popular posts of 2013. There is no one topic or product that is most popular, but it’s pretty clear that our longer, more technical articles are very popular. The top 10 for 2013 are: 1 Back to Basics: Zero Voltage Switching What it is and why it’s important for Buck Voltage Regulation 2 Back to Basics: What are Y-Capacitors? Learn about these important filtering components 3 Back to Basics: Power Factor What does Power...

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...

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

July 20, 2012
By

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...
