380 Vdc Distribution to the Line Card

380 Vdc distribution is quickly gaining ground in data centers and central offices due to difficulties in phase balancing AC power, total cost of ownership (TCO), and system reliability. Vicor's Sine Amplitude Converter (SAC) provides benchmark power density and efficiency and is an enabling technology for this fast growing architecture. Using Vicor technology, power system architects can convert 380 DC to 12 V or 48 V with up to 98% efficiency.
