Vicor Corporation to Showcase New Power Products and Design Tool Capabilities
at APEC 2015

New product announcements, PowerBench™ design tool demonstrations, and technical presentation on tap for premier power electronics conference; attendees can visit Vicor at Booth #929


Andover, MA – March 02, 2015 – Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced its participation at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC 2015), March 15 -19, in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Charlotte Convention Center. At the event, Vicor will unveil and exhibit the newest additions to its portfolio of high-performance power components and will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its PowerBench™ power system design tool suite.

APEC 2015 attendees will learn more about Vicor’s latest innovations in power, targeted at a wide range of applications requiring the highest levels of power density and efficiency. Designed to help customers architect high-performance power systems with unrivaled flexibility, these new products expand the depth and breadth of Vicor’s solution portfolio and span the complete power chain from power source to point of load.

Attendees can also participate in hands-on demonstrations of Vicor’s online PowerBench™ design tool suite. PowerBench tools enable designers to employ a web-based power component design methodology that eliminates design complexity, reduces development costs, and accelerates time to market. At APEC 2015, Vicor will demo the latest enhancements to its PowerBench Whiteboard, an easy-to-use design tool that equips users to architect end-to-end power chain block diagrams and dynamically analyze system attributes including efficiency and power loss.

With the most recent enhancements to the Whiteboard design tool, users will be able to preview the mechanical layout of their power chains and assess the real-world size and dimensions of the components they’ve selected. Providing a top-down view of the complete component power chain, this capability enables users to better optimize their designs for maximum power density and space savings.

Also at APEC 2015, Vicor application engineer Ankur Patel will present a paper describing the use of Vicor’s proprietary Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC) switching technology in the design of an isolated step-up DC-DC converter. SAC switching enables an elegant method of resolving the challenges of designing DC-DC converters to provide isolated, regulated and step-up voltage transformation, providing a +6% increase in efficiency and more than four times the power density of alternative solutions. This presentation will be delivered in conjunction with the System Integration technical session scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 8:30am to 11:20am local time, in Room 2.

APEC 2015 attendees can visit Vicor at Booth #929.
