Seminars in Austria and Germany: New Technologies for Power Systems

In November Vicor will be holding technical seminars in Austria and Germany that will explain how to use new technologies to improve power system performance. These seminars will give participants an opportunity to have their power design problems solved by Vicor’s engineers. Attendees will learn how individual converter stages can be optimised by using advanced power components and understand the benefits of different topologies such as zero voltage switching (ZVS) and Sine Amplitude Converters (SAC). The seminar will explain how these technologies can be implemented in both isolated and non-isolated modules. A simple approach...

Article: “The Hard Facts On Soft Switching”

Article: “The Hard Facts On Soft Switching”

For many, a good rule of thumb for switch-mode power designs has been that hard switching is easy, and soft switching is hard. Power-switching technology developments, however, give reason to switch thumbs. To find out more read the latest column in Electronic Design, in which Stephen Oliver takes a look at the relative merits of the two power trains.

Webinar Rebroadcast: “Designing High Performance AC-DC Power Systems Using a Power Component Approach” now available in French and Russian

This popular webinar, which walks through an innovative three-step process to design a multi-kW, AC-DC power system with a dozen output rails in just half an hour, is now available on-demand in both French and Russian. The three step process – identify, architect and implement – has been used by many engineers to quickly and efficiently design complex power systems. In the identify stage, the parameters of the output rails are determined and ranked in terms of their requirements. Next the system is architected, by building a block diagram with appropriate solutions for each...

Technical Seminars in India: Solve Your EMI Problems

Later this month we will be holding half-day seminars in Bangalore and Hyderabad to help engineers solve their EMI problems. Attenuating conducted EMI can be complex and difficult, particularly if engineers do not fully understand the root cause or major factors that impact conducted EMI performance. These seminars will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the causes, impact and measurement of EMI as well as offering advice, tips and techniques to reduce EMI. Engineers who attend the seminars will leave with the knowledge of how to design higher density, more efficient filtering systems. The...
