The ChiP BCM converts an input voltage of 260 to 410 V to a 50 V output at 1.75 kW, with 98% peak efficiency. With a power density of 2750 W/in3 (167 W/cm³), the ChiP BCM delivers five times the performance of competing solutions, enabling customers to achieve previously unattainable system size, weight and efficiency targets.

The award winners were announced on November 26 at a gala ceremony in London, UK. Vicor’s PowerBench® Whiteboard was also recognized, shortlisted in the Design Tools and Development Software category.
