Robert Gendron Explains Why 48 V is the New 12 V in this On-Demand Webinar

Power system designers in a variety of applications, including telecoms, data centers, automotive, industrial, lighting and aerospace, have long relied on a 12 V intermediate (or hub) bus to distribute electrical power. With increasing demands for higher output powers in smaller spaces, and the need to improve efficiency, 12 V is rapidly being replaced with 48 V. By moving to a higher voltage, engineers reduce the I2R loss in cabling, improving power efficiency. The smaller, lighter cabling is also cheaper, offers easier routing of power, and enables further energy savings, particularly in transportation applications where weight...

Embedded News Discusses the Benefits of the Power Component Design Methodology with Claudio Tuozzolo

November 29, 2014
By

During the recent electronica trade show, Carolina Kleinken-Palma, editor of Embedded-News.tv, interviewed Claudio Tuozzolo, president of Vicor’s Picor division about the benefits of Vicor’s power component design methodology. In the video, Claudio explains how the modular and scalable approach enables power system designers to develop high-performance solutions for a wide range of applications. He gives an example of a system that uses a product based on the VIA packaging technology that was unveiled at the show to produce a 48 V hub voltage. This hub voltage can be directly converted to voltages as low...

Whiteboard of the Week: Aircraft Cockpit Large Area Display (LAD)

An aircraft cockpit requires a complex power system: the large number of complex instruments require a variety of different power rails, whist space and weight must be minimized. The second Whiteboard Power Chain of the Week illustrates one solution developed by a Vicor applications engineer for one of our customers.
