Microlithography for the Semi-conductor Industry Using Laser Scanning

Microlithography for the Semi-conductor Industry Using Laser Scanning

The PFC MegaPAC proves an ideal solution for a custom microlithographic processor. Depending on the semi-conductor manufacturers’ requirements, each system can be customised with a variety of output voltages, both positive and negative. The configurability of the product also means that lead times for this large piece of capital equipment can be reduced, improving the bottom line for the customer. Additionally, the modularity of the PFC MegaPAC enables fast system repair in the event of a supply rail failure. A similar microlithographic process is also used for making a display. In this processor, the photo...

Wide Range Trimming with Variable Loads

Wide Range Trimming with Variable Loads

Vicor Maxi, Mini and Micro modules can be programmed from 10 to 110% of their nominal output voltage. If the system always has a sufficient minimum load, trimming down is easily accomplished with a small low power resistor or potentiometer. With a wide trim range, a preload is often needed to maintain a stable trimmed voltage, especially at light loads. A minimum load is frequently required, typically when the output is programmed below 75% of nominal, but it is always required if it is trimmed below 25%.   Click here to go to an...

Explosives Detection Systems for Airports

Explosives Detection Systems for Airports

Air travel is an essential part of our daily lives; over 600 million people fly each year, not to mention the millions of bags that go along with them. That is why efficient explosives detectors are absolutely vital for passengers’ safety. Current explosives detection systems (EDS) are the size of a mini-van and employ technology which combine many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images. A variety of Vicor products, such as modules, VIPACs and PFC MegaPACs, can be used in these systems. In...

V•I Chip Family in Full Production

V•I Chip Family in Full Production

Following the launch of the Bus Converter V•I Chip in August 2006, Vicor has announced that a full family of further V•I Chips components, required for implementing complete Factorized Power Architectures (FPA), entered production in November. Using the Pre-Regulator Module (PRM) and the Voltage Transformation Module (VTM) 48 Vdc input FPA systems can now be implemented that provide isolated, regulated outputs from 0.8 to 55 Vdc. The current range of standard V•I Chip products is targeted to meet the requirements of customers in the high volume manufacture of RF and communications systems, high-end servers,...
