An Introduction to ChiP Technology

An Introduction to ChiP Technology

In this latest video Steve Oliver, VP VI Chip Division, presents an introduction to Vicor’s new ChiP technology (“Converter Housed in Package”).  This exciting new technology has been developed to enable the next generation of power components The demand is for ever smaller power components able to handle more power and greater loads.  Yet the development of these products is being hampered by resulting heat dissipation issues.  Our ChiP packaging technology provides the breakthrough necessary to achieve size and performance levels previously thought to be impossible. And the flexibility of the technology will enable...

High Density Power Solutions for Heavy Power Regulation

High Density Power  Solutions for Heavy Power Regulation

Vicor’s VI Chip PRM is a very efficient non-isolated regulator for high power applications, delivering up to 500 W from a single chip. It uses Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) technology to  buck and boost a wide range of input voltages, providing a regulated, adjustable output voltage. In this post we see why the PRM improves and eases power system design, and give an overview of the internal topology behind its power density and efficiency.

Using a High-Performance, Integrated AC Front End to Streamline Design and Reduce Time to Market

Using a High-Performance, Integrated AC Front End to Streamline Design and Reduce Time to Market

Among the many challenges of AC-DC converters and Power Factor Corrected (PFC) AC rectification is maintaining the desired performance across the worldwide mains, from low through high line, 85VRMS to 264VRMS. Maintaining high efficiency and power-factor usually forces design tradeoffs and operating compromises. The thermal system, as well as active and magnetic power components, has to be specified for worst-case scenarios. An alternative approach for the OEM is to “regionalize” the supply, but this also results in other design and supply chain drawbacks.
